India’s largest online brokerage platform Zerodha was founded by brothers Nithin and Nikhil Kamath. Taking a dig at this fact, one user replied, “Tell him his surname has to be Kamath and first name needs to start from ‘N’ for him to be the 3rd brother and then he can claim for his stake…”
Besides this, many users started listing out their own serious queries and demanding the company look into them.
“Kindly also look into Zerodha customers money stuck (failed transactions) in BSE star MF from COIN platform. I want you to share the information you have shared with BSE StAR MF for refund process like bank account and failed transaction ref no furnished. Kindly share correct data,” requested one user.
The company had although clarified on Tuesday this week that the issue with BSE StAR MF has been resolved. They’d assured that the customers can place purchase and redemption orders on Coin, which is the company’s order collection platform.
