It ranges from Rs150, most charge Rs 300 and some even charge as much as RS 800/900 going upwards from the second year, depending upon the type of demat account you choose- individual or joint accounts, NRI demat accounts, demat and trading accounts or 3-in-1 accounts. There are brokers who allow lifetime free AMC to the customers without any terms and conditions.  

Often, as compared to discount brokers, full-service brokers charge a higher amount of AMC. The price for your Demat AMC does not depend on whether you hold shares in your Demat account or not. This fee has to be paid for the maintenance of your accounts, regardless of whether you are an active investor or not, or whether you do positional trading or intraday trading. Unless you are with some broker that charges Zero AMC.

Brokers often waive off   AMC for the first year and charge AMC from the 2nd year onwards. Some charge zero AMC services to the account holder who has no shares in the account till the purchase of first share.
