Please log on to your bank’s net banking site and check whether the transferred amount has been debited from your account. If so, call our Customer Care desk at 1800 102 6776 and give them the Bank Reference number for the transaction. Your Base Capital will soon be revised to reflect the transferred amount.

Please write to us through the ‘Solve Your Queries’ page on our website or call our Customer Care desk on 1800 102 6776.

You can find the ‘Solve Your Queries’ option in the Customer Service menu on the trading page. Please make sure to quote your bank’s name, bank reference number, the date of the transaction and the amount transferred.

We will look into the matter and ensure that the transfer reflects in your commodity trading account at the earliest.

This could be because the processing of your order could have been interrupted.

Check with your dealer/relationship manager if the Trade order did go through. They can check it on their system access.

If it has not gone through, you can initiate the order again. In case the order did go through, your dealer will help you with the confirmation and the Contract Note.

We would recommend that you check your Order status on the website. Alternatively, you can ask your dealer/relationship manager to check if the Trade order did go through. They can check it on their system access. If it got processed, then it should appear in your Order book. If it has not gone through, then you would have to place the order again.

Don’t worry. You can easily change your password and regain access to your commodities trading account. All you need to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to the Login page on Kotak Commodities’ website and find the ‘My Account’ option on the top left side of the page.
  2. Click on ‘My Account’ and select ‘Forgot Trading Password’ in the menu that appears.
  3. Selecting the Forgot Password option will lead you to a new page. Here, you will be asked to answer two questions: your mothers’ maiden name and a randomly selected question that will have four answer options for you to choose from. Answer both the questions correctly, and the system will direct you to a new page. On this page, you can create a new password for your online commodity trading account.
    Remember that you will only get two attempts to answer both questions correctly. If you are unable to answer the questions correctly in two attempts, we will deliver a new password to you by courier.
    In such an event, a query will be automatically posted from your trading account. Once the query is posted, we will print and courier a new password to you within 48 hours. Your password will be couriered free of cost up to 5 times in a financial year. After this, you will be charged a nominal amount of Rs. 25 for each courier.

You have two options. Refer to the Online Trading kit that you got when you opened the account. You can find your Username details in it.

Otherwise, call our Customer Care centre at 1800 102 6776. Once you request for the Username, you will be asked a few details to verify your identity. You will then get your details.

Sorry for the inconvenience. This could be because of five reasons:
1) Wrong Username : Kindly check if you got your Username correct. If not, you can refer to the Trading kit you received from us. Alternatively, call our Customer Care centre at 1800 102 6776 to get your Username.
2) Wrong Password : Check if your Caps Lock is on. This could cause troubles. If that is not the issue, then check if your Password has not been changed recently—our system requires that you change your Trading password every 14 days. If none of these are the cause of your problem, then kindly click on ‘Forgot password’ and reset your password. (You can refer to the process here ). 
3) Unactivated Account : If you are a new Trader, you have to activate your account first. You cannot log in directly. To do this, click on the ‘Activate An Account’ button on the homepage.  
4) Blocked Account : If you have tried to sign in using the wrong Password more than three times, your account gets blocked. In this case, you can follow the onscreen instructions to unblock your account. 
5) You are not an Online customer : Logging into Kotak Commodities to trade in commodities is a service available to our online trading customers. If you have not opted for this service, then  you may not be able to sign in.

To ensure your account’s security, we have a system that requires you to change your website password every 14 days. Your password will automatically expire if you don’t reset it within this period. Here is how to change website password if it expires:

  1. Click on ‘My Account’ in the trading section. This will lead you to a new screen.
  2. Fill in your Old password and a new password of your choice in the designated space. The password should be alpha numeric, have a minimum of 5 characters, a maximum of 10 characters, contain at least one special character (like -,_,)  and not be the same as your username.
  3. Confirm the password by typing it again.
  4. Click ‘Submit’.

Your website password will be updated shortly.

If the contract note has not been delivered to your email id, it is probably because the mail containing your contract note has bounced back.  Some of the most common reasons for this are:

  1. Your correct email id has not been registered with us.
  2. Your email ID has changed, and has not been updated with us.
  3. Your email inbox was full.

If the contract note mail bounces back for any reason, our systems auto generates a hard copy of the contact note and couriers it to your registered mailing address.
