I am working on the Prime 2999 plan. Recently it got extended for one more year. I am quite happy with the terms of this Plan and find it very competitive. The services rendered and MIS are also good. Overall it is working fine with me. I am particularly happy with the interest rates (16.49% p.a.) which are charged to me on Margin Buying.

I opted for PRIME brokerage plan, which helped me to save lot of money on brokerage. The Instant payout option built in this plan has been extremely helpful a number of times when I had shortage of cash. This has helped me to trade more frequently in share market.

After opting for ICICIdirect Prime plan, I have now started trading more with ICICIdirect as the current brokerage is less than earlier days. Apart from that few new facilities such as the Instant pay out facility, reduced Margin trading interest rates that are added recently, have also made their proposition stronger.

Prime is a valuable plan because it’s a yearly offering and its doesn't end up blocking your capital. The facility of Instant payout on selling shares and exclusive research makes it an even more stronger offering. It is a win-win situation & a value proposition.

DP charges are levied when a customer sells the shares from demat account. It is charge to be paid to the Depositories and Depository participants. In new Prime on selling a share from demat account, there will be a DP charges of Rs 20 on every debit instruction. This is inclusive of the NSDL or CDSL charges. This will be debited from the linked bank account whenever there is a sell transaction.  E.g If customer has Tata Motors share in his demat and he sells the same. A flat Rs 20 would be levied irrespective of the trade value. In case the customer is selling Tata motors multiple times during the day, there will only be a single debit instruction and only Rs 20 will be charged. On other hand if the customer sells 2 different stocks of different companies on same day, then there will be 2 debit instructions and Rs 20*2 = Rs 40 will be levied.

Currently Quant Pick for Prime clients and Gladiator Stocks will be available as exclusive Prime research to Prime customers only and they will get an email of these recommendations as and when there is a new recommendation under these recommendations
