What is a Demat Account?

A Demat or dematerialized account is a digital platform designed for electronically holding various financial instruments, including company shares and securities like stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and ETFs. The corresponding shares are credited to the Demat account upon purchasing stocks, and when selling, the securities are debited accordingly. Investors can choose between a standalone Demat account or a 3-in-1 account, seamlessly integrating their trading and bank accounts.

Types of Demat Account

Here are various types of Demat accounts designed to cater to the specific needs and preferences of investors:

  • Regular Demat Account

    Indian residents widely use this online Demat account to trade equity shares and securities. It requires linkage with a trading account for advanced activities like Futures and Options. An associated annual maintenance charge (AMC) varies among service providers. SEBI introduced the Basic Services Demat Account (BSDA) to accommodate smaller investors, which minimizes or eliminates the AMC based on the investment size, making it more cost-effective for individuals with limited holdings.

  • BSDA - Basic Service Demat Account

    The Basic Services Demat Account (BSDA) is tailored for small investors, featuring concessions like reduced maintenance charges, particularly beneficial when the value of securities in the account does not exceed ₹2 lakhs. Ideal for those with a smaller investment portfolio or new to investing, the BSDA is a cost-effective and accessible option.

  • Repatriable Demat Account

    Crafted for Non-Resident Indian (NRI) investors, the Repatriable Demat Account allows participation in the Indian stock market and facilitates the transfer of funds outside India. Linked with an NRE (Non-Resident External) account, it offers flexibility and enables NRI investors to repatriate up to one million US dollars annually.

  • Non-repatriable Demat Account

    Like the repatriable account, the Non-repatriable Demat Account is designed for NRIs but does not permit fund transfers outside India. Linked to an NRO (Non-Resident Ordinary) account, it allows NRIs to invest in the Indian stock market, benefiting from economic growth while keeping funds within the Indian financial system.

Documents Required to open Demat account

For a free Demat account opening online, you'll need a set of documents, much like those required for a bank account. Here's a breakdown:

  • Proof of identity

    Provide a government-issued ID with a photo, like a driving license, passport, voter ID card, or Aadhaar.

  • Proof of address

    Submit recent utility bills, passport, Aadhaar card, etc. If needed, your spouse's address proof is also accepted.

  • Proof of income

    Mandatory for specific transactions such as derivatives. Include documents like proof of salary, recent income tax returns, and bank account statements if required.

  • Proof of bank account

    This is a must. Submit a canceled cheque or recent bank statement to the depository participant handling your account.

  • PAN card

    Attach your permanent account number to other documents. This helps the income tax department monitor potential tax evasions.

  • Photographs

    Depending on your broker, you might need 1-3 recent photographs.

  • Additional documents for specific entities

    If you're opening the account as a company, NRI, or Hindu Undivided Family, extra documents are necessary to prove your status and eligibility.
