Demat Account


This is an efficient way of protecting and safeguarding all your shares and eligible securities by holding in an electronic and dematerialized form. NRIs can easily transfer shares from any other Demat account to NRI account. Also, this Demat account will help the NRIs to do online trading and invest their money in India.

NRI Demat Account: No special permission from the RBI is required by NRIs to open a Demat account, though specific cases may require authorization from the designated authorized dealers. NRIs require separate Demat accounts for securities under the foreign direct investment (FDI) scheme, which is repatriable.

When an NRI returns permanently to India, he must inform his designated authorized dealer of his new status, and request him to open a new account. The securities held in the NRI Demat account needs to be transferred to the new resident Demat account and the NRI Demat account gets closed.

Advantages of having a Demat account:
  • Elimination of problems associated with physical certificates
  • Saves stamp duty, paperwork on transfer deeds
  • Gives immediate benefits from bonus shares and stock splits
  • Way to get your money/shares faster
  • Convenient mode of transacting shares
  • Avoids delays due to wrong/incorrect signatures, post, and misplacement of certificates
  • Prevents risks like forgery and counterfeit, theft or damage to documents
  • Freedom of buying/selling shares through any broker of your choice
There are two types of Demat accounts:
  • The Repatriable Demat Account: This account is for the shares purchased by using repatriable funds.
  • The Non-Repatriable Demat account: This account is for the shares purchased by using non-repatriable funds or when you were an Indian resident.

Banks i.e. Depository Participants offer Demat account. The advantage of holding an account with banks is that it enables quick on-line dealings, ensuring credit of a transaction to the account holder's savings account by the third day.

Documents required for opening a Demat Account
  • PAN card
  • Identity proof
  • Address, date of birth proof
  • A photograph of all the joint holders along with a crossed signature on it
  • DP-client agreement on non-judicial stamp paper

First of all I would like to thank  you  and the Gera team for organizing different workshops at our doorstep.
The best thing I have done to my kids is that I  took a right decision to buy a flat in Gera.
Because of this decision , Vishnu could attend  the development workshops that were conducted.
Vishnu was a shy child who didn't like to participate in any of the programmes.

My son Tattva had been enrolled in the intermediate level and has been coached by the Vishwanathan Anand Chess Academy coach . Tattva has made remarkable strides and will be on his way to get his FIDE rating in November. A lot of credit goes to the mentor for his unique way of handling his students. He has been very patient while working with Tattva on his areas of improvement. In addition before the tournament the coach had voluntarily added additional classes and doubled his efforts to get a better performance out of Tattva. He has shown complete ownership which is commendable. I hope he continues to develop more and more chess players in the coming days.
