Back in 2011, I decided to open a trading and demat account with a broker. The broker’s representative called me saying it would require a few documents and it would get open within a day. It took one full week!!
It took me more than an hour to read all the instruction and understand what was required to be filled where. I had to sit and fill the whole form, repeating certain details several times. I was required to fill in details like my Name, email ID, etc at 20 different places in the same form. It was beyond me as to why should I write my name on the same form booklet for 20 times at 20 different places. The whole experience was a disaster! I’m sure many of you have had similar experiences. I think filling up a form to open a broking and demat account with a broker has been nightmare for everyone individual in the country. The same process had to be all over again repeated for opening a commodity account as well.
