Final thought about IDBI Direct

While IDBI has a full service package to offer, the Broker still needs to work on customer service, trading platforms and transparency in brokerage and other charges. Then only it can compete with other full service 3 in 1 brokers such as ICICI and HDFC.

On a closing note, IDBI is an average Broker with nice overall offerings but with little catches here and there.
