Very honestly, if you are working fulltime in a unrelated profession, its is best to invest via mutual funds. I see poople trading/watching stocks at office ... it distracts you from work. Yes you will be compromising on absolute returns but you can just sit back and let your investments being taken care of by professionals. Not to forget that its much less risky.
Anyways go for a DEMAT a/c with ICICI. I havent started using mine but I believe you can also trade MF units from it.
