Common questions

A Demat account is basically a locker for all your digital assets. From shares, bonds, securities, mutual funds to exchange-traded funds (ETF), this account secures your financial assets in electronic form.

Short form of 'dematerialisation', what this means is you no longer have to save hard copies or challans. Dematerialisation is a process that converts the physical proof of your investments to online, safely and reliably.

Put simply, just as your bank account saves and makes transactions with your money, an online demat account allows you to trade stocks, invest in financial assets and for keeping these securities on a digital platform.

Physical share trading used to require 14 days to complete a settlement cycle. Let’s say you want to open a Demat account, how do you go about it? Now you can apply for this online and make settlements in just two days!

Not only does the shift from physical to digital accounting reduce the settlement time, but it also helps to prevent theft or forgery, loss or duplication of certificates. Well, time is money, but our goal is to save both your time and money.

On opening a demat account, we can now offer you the convenience of trading from anywhere. This means you can easily invest through in the stock market using just your fingertips!

While the majority of Indians have a bank account in some form or another, most are unaware of the benefits of having a Demat Account.

According to SEBI data, there were 38.4 million Demat accounts in India as of 2018. This is much less if you consider this number with the fact that over 80% of the Indian population has savings or current accounts with banks.

One of the most important advantages of this account is that it makes trading easier. In reality, opening this account is the initial step toward stock trading. Even if they have a strong desire to invest in stocks and bonds, many people are unaware of the accounts required to begin stock trading.

One of the most important uses is having access to relevant information, such as checking live share market updates and analyzing your various assets. It also guarantees that you are kept informed about your assets by providing share market news.

The Depository Participant (DP) will send out notifications on a regular basis about dividend declarations, earnings, mergers, buybacks, and other important information. To aid in making educated investing selections, you may receive analyst reports based on business performance, financial predictions, and historical data. You can keep track of your portfolio's performance across various investment products.

This gives you the flexibility to adjust your risk profile and return expectations as needed. You may also configure alerts and automated buy and sell orders that will be executed when the stocks hit predetermined prices.

It is necessary to have a DEMAT account in order to trade on the stock market. You must open this account with a registered Depository Participant. Because there are so many registered depository participants, it's critical to pick the proper one.

To open a DEMAT account as an investor might present you with a number of advantages. Here are a few things you should know that will assist you in making an informed decision.

  • Broker types: Broking firms are divided into two categories. Discount brokerages and full-service brokerages are examples of this. A discount broker executes stock and derivatives transactions according to the investor's instructions. Large broking organizations with a strong online and offline presence are known as full-service brokers. A full-service broker provides services in addition to those provided by a discount broker, such as mutual fund investment, insurance, initial public offerings (IPOs) and advisory.

  • Fees: There are certain demat account opening charges that an investor has to pay. Annual maintenance fees, transaction costs, conversion fees, and other fees are among them. Charges differ from one DP to the next. Before creating an account with a registered DP, it is critical to check into these fees.

  • Instant Information: This account provides real-time stock market information and current events. You'll also get expert and analytical comments on stock suggestions. Such information is crucial when it comes to purchasing and selling shares at the proper time.

  • Nomination: When opening this account, you may want to designate a nominee. This is to ensure that, in the event of your death, all of your assets are transferred to a nominee of your choosing.

  • Software and technology: Examining the trading software of your prospective depository participant is another important element to consider before you open a demat account online or offline. User-friendly software helps ensure that transactions are completed quickly and smoothly. Select a broker that provides the most up to date yet simple-to-understand user interface for simple investments.

Essentially, traders may choose from three main sorts of DEMAT accounts. Trading is available to both Indian residents and non-resident Indians using the DEMAT accounts listed below. Make sure you choose the right form of the account for you, based on your location and other factors, since each of these account types serves a particular purpose. When you choose the correct DEMAT account for yourself, your market involvement will be much more relevant. They are:

  1. Regular DEMAT account
  2. Repatriable DEMAT account
  3. Non-repatriable DEMAT account

It is necessary to comprehend the various types of DEMAT accounts and why they are categorized as such. This might lead to greater meaningful engagement in the stock market. It will be easy to pick the sort of account that is most suited for you after you have learned the essentials.

1. Regular DEMAT Account

For investors based in India, a regular DEMAT account is required. The account is perfect for those who only trade in stocks. The shares that are purchased are kept in a digital format in the account. Another advantage of this account is the ability to swap financial institutions without incurring extra fees. This account removes several fees associated with physical shares, making it more cost-effective. You may access your account information at any moment without any fuss. When compared to real shares, this account is significantly safer since it removes the possibility of counterfeiting.

2. Repatriable DEMAT Account

Non-resident Indians may open this form of DEMAT account. It enables the movement of wealth from one country to another. Such accounts, however, need a Non-Resident External bank account. Any bank, brokerage, or depository participant may create this account for you.

You may establish a joint repatriable DEMAT account in the same way as you would a regular account. NRI investments in India are regulated and managed by the Foreign Exchange Management Act, unlike those made by Indian citizens. NRIs must be able to establish trading accounts with financial companies that have been approved by the RBI.

In order to route the investment through other channels, NRI investors must have an NRO or NRE account to move their investment through PINS (Portfolio investment NRI Scheme) account, where they are allowed to buy and sell equities through the stock exchange of India

3. Non-repatriable DEMAT Account

This is another form of DEMAT account for NRIs. You cannot, however, transfer funds overseas. You must also have a DEMAT account that is connected to an NRO bank account. According to RBI norms, an NRI may own up to 5% of a company's paid-up capital in India.

Even in this case, the NRI must either change his or her existing DEMAT account to the NRO category or establish a new one. NRIs may invest in India under the Portfolio Investment Scheme (PINS). This plan allows non-resident Indians to buy and sell shares and mutual fund units.

The dividend amount and interest received are entirely repatriable under RBI standards. However, the principal is not.

In a given year, an NRI may transfer up to $1 million.

You may open a Non-Repatriable DEMAT account with any bank, brokerage, or depository.

An NRI must complete the account opening form and submit it to the authorized office along with the required documents and account opening fees.
