  1. I think any discounted brokerage with a couple of years of experience is a good option. Gone are the days where u pay brokerage in % . I would recommend checking for the latest offers from a discounted brokerage firm.

  2. Zerodha seems to be a very good discount broker, and it also offers its PI, which is a very good platform for market analysis

  3. My Value Trade is a good discount broker in terms of the lowest brokerage plans of just Rs. 10 per transaction and Rs. 1000 per month for large scale traders. I also like their trading portal due to ease of access and live updates for intelligent share trading. It also offers Rs. 10K per annum brokerage plan.

  4. Tradeplus Online seems to be good discount broker because its provides lowest refundable brokerage plans and they also provides tools for market alerts and analysis tool.They also provides online mobile platforms to apply for IPO online
