You say that the account opening charge is Nil for SBICAPSEC, but when I submitted the form last week, they said they will charge me one time fee of 400 Rs. -Sameer

that is strange because they had not charged me anything. Thanks for the comment though. I'll update the post accordingly.

I was also charged Rs 400 to start an account. Besides there is an AMC of Rs 400. I thing you can save Rs 50 id you decide to get e-statements rather than paper statements. I am a newbie user. Is there any help available on how to use the trading platform.

Even I was charged 399 when the account was opened as AMC.
