Before we complete this comparison, we think one quick understanding of brokerage charges is important.
Full-service stockbrokers charge brokerage as a percentage of your trading turnover.
For instance, if you place a trade of ₹10,000 for Equity delivery and your broker charges 0.4% or 40 paise as brokerage. This would mean, you will be charged 0.40% of ₹10,000 i.e. ₹40 as the brokerage for that particular trade.
Discount brokers, on the other hand, charge a flat rate brokerage (could be ₹10, ₹20 etc) irrespective of the trade value.
Make sure you understand this difference and then take a call. Here is a brokerage calculator for your reference.
