Post By : Category : Demat November 18, 2021

Do you know what a Demat Account is?
Introduced in the year 1996 as an alternative to physical share certificates, a Demat Account is the one that electronically holds securities and shares; it not only makes the trading of shares quick and simple but also reduces the risk and problems associated with physical share certificates.

A Demat Account can also be termed as Dematerialised account, which means converting the physical shares in to electronic format. Dematerialising of shares not only eliminates unnecessary paperwork, but also helps in soothing the process of share trading. A Demat Account can be used to store a wide variety of investments such as equity shares, ETFs bonds, debt securities, mutual funds and Government securities. In UAE, having a Demat Account is mandatory if you are thinking to invest in the India Stock Market.

What steps needed to be taken to open a Demat Account online?

  • Connect with the Depository Participant (DP) & fill the opening form online:
