    Motilal OSwal PMS is a trap I have personal experience , In spite of Market doing so good the value will always move down if market is growing , study or loosing, On top of that they have hefty charges on brokerage, monthly fee exit load so only people who will gain from this is Motilal Oswal and there agents not there customers and that also they will make profit for non performance of their fund managers, Guys please stay away if possible
