What is demat account?

Frequently Asked Questions

There are 3 important terms in understanding demat account in India.

1. Dematerialisation

It is a process that facilitates the conversion of share certificates from physical to the electronic form. Shares held thereafter are easier to manage while providing more accessibility from anywhere around the globe.

Dematerialisation also allows you to monitor and track your holdings seamlessly, on-the-go.

2. Depositary participants

A depository participant acts as an intermediary or agent of a central depository and provides namesake services to investors and traders. India currently has two central depositories registered with the apex trading and investment regulatory body SEBI.

  • NSDL
  • CDSL

A depository participant must, therefore, be registered with either of these two licensed operators to open a Demat account.

3. Unique 16-digit client ID

Each demat account is assigned with a unique 16-digit client ID that acts as the investor's identity. The first 8 digits of the ID represent the depository participant while the last 8 digits act as a unique identification for the investor, facilitating sale or purchase of shares and securities.

We are happy to inform that at IIFL Securities, we don't charge any fees for opening a demat account. However, some discount brokers may require you to pay account opening charges.

To open a demat account with IIFL Securities, you'll need the following documents

  • Proof of identity, such as your PAN card, Aadhar card, voter's ID, or driving license.
  • Proof of address, such as your passport, utility bills, or bank passbook.
  • Proof of income, such as your income tax return or salary slips.
  • Passport-sized photograph.

Annual maintenance charges are essentially charges levied by a depository participant for maintaining your demat account. But, there's some good news! When you open a demat account with IIFL Securities, you enjoy zero AMC for the first year.

A demat account is created for the purpose of holding your financial assets in a dematerialized form, while a trading account helps you buy and sell shares and other commodities. You can link your demat account and your trading account, so share trading becomes easier for you.

Below are the categories of personnel eligible to open a demat account in India-

  • Resident individuals
  • Non-resident individuals.
