It is very important for the person to understand the basics of a demat account before investing in share market.

What is Demat Account?

Demat Account stands for a 'Dematerialised Account'. It is must if you want to invest in shares, as most trades nowadays take place in electronic form. It is an account opened with a bank or a broking firm to buy and sell shares or invest in exchange-traded funds. A demat account holds shares in dematerialised or electronic form. It is clear that without having it one will not be able to trade in stock market as per SEBI rules.

Demat Account Opening Procedure:

Some of the depository participants are given in the following list.

Depending on the DP, there may or may not be an opening account fee. There are four major charges usually levied on a Demat account: Account opening fee, annual maintenance fee, custodian fee and transaction fee. All the charges vary from DP to DP.

Once your account starts functioning, you will get a unique Beneficiary Owner ID from your service provider. This ID is a reference number and this id is used in every transaction. You will also receive a Delivery Instruction Slip (DIS) book. It is like a bank cheque book. A Delivery Instruction slip is used to give instructions to the service provider to debit your account and credit the broker's account with the specific stock and share.
