A Demat account holds the securities, and a trading account allows the investor or buys, sell, or trade in these securities.
Fill out the Demat Request Form (available with every DP) detailing the information of the physical certificates and submit it along with the original certificates to the DP (that is, us). Since every type of security has a different International Securities Identification Number (ISIN), the investor will have to separate forms for every security. Once the DP (that is, us) verifies all the documentation, the DP updates the investor account, and the Depository makes a note of the changes.
The dematerialization procedure is completed in approximately 30 days. On successful completion, an equal number of electronic securities is credited to the holders’ Demat accounts.
If the request is rejected, investors need to contact the DP and seek assistance for the resubmission of a fresh DRF.
You can log in to our back office & go to the “my profile” page, or check out the welcome letter you would have received from the depository (CDSL or NSDL) which will contain all the account information including your Demat account number.
You can get your ISIN number from your holdings statement.
Depository participants levy four kinds of charges (or fees) for a Demat account transaction; they are, account opening fee, annual maintenance fee, custodian fee, and transaction fee.
Depository Participant (DP) charges are levied on all sell transactions of your Demat Account. These charges are exclusive of brokerage and are not reflected in contract notes. DP charges are a flat transaction fee, irrespective of the quantity sold.
The Demat account has a 16-digit numeric character in the case of CDSL, whereas in the case of NSDL, the Demat account number starts with “IN” followed by a 14-digit numeric code.
