Initially, in the previous year’s customers were inclined towards making calls to their brokers and making purchases of their securities and contracts. During that period the brokerage charges were relatively high as compared to the current scenario. Due to high brokerage charges earlier brokers could maintain a large number of employees and relationship managers to handle clients on a personal basis. These days due to the improvement and expansion of technology the concept of online discount brokerage was introduced. Due to this cost effective methods of broking have been introduced through which the benefits have been passed on to the customers. In the current scenario, here at Samco Securities our customers pay brokerage fees of flat Rs 20 or 0.05% (0.2% for delivery) per transaction, whichever is lower. Through this our customers are saving a lot of money, where initially brokerage fees were eating up a large chunk of their profits.

Why are call and trade charges levied?
As discussed above, earlier the cost of executing trades via dealers was bundled in the percentage brokerage. However due to the discount broking model with a complete unbundling of prices, customer who do not need this service and execute trades by themselves only a fee per order is charged. Only those customers who need to specifically avail this Trade on Phone service actually end up paying for it thus unbundling the pricing package. You can calculate the brokerage exclusive of the call and trade charges at the SAMCO Brokerage calculator.
