SEBI has made it mandatory for brokers to use Aadhaar-based e-KYC (Know Your Customer) authentication for account opening and for existing account holders to link their Aadhaar with Demat accounts. NSDL has also made adequate provisions to link UIDAI with Demat account of investors online. Your Aadhaar Card has a unique 12 digit id that recognizes your identity and address, and thus linking with demat account with Aadhaar protects against identity thefts and cases of money laundering and tax deception. Thus, it is secure, fast and hassle free to open your Demat account with the help of Aadhaar.
You can conveniently link Aadhaar with Demat Account by visiting NSDL Website. On home page you will see ‘Link Aadhaar with Demat Account.’ Click on ‘Get Started’ tab and share customer ID, PAN number, Demat account number, Name and so on. Click ‘Proceed’ after sharing the Verification Code. Your Demat information will be shown on the screen. Check the details and if correct, continue with the connection process. The Aadhaar will be linked to the Demat account after verification and authentication is completed in this step.
To check your Demat account details, you simply need to visit your broker’s or depository participant’s (DP) website or app. Log in using your username and password and click on “My Account.” Select “Demat Account” from the list of accounts. Here you can check all the details related to your Demat account: name, account number, DP ID, and list of the securities held in the account. Here, you will also be able to see your transaction history, including securities bought or sold, date of the transaction, and the balance in the account. You can also download your Demat account statement, which has a summary of your transactions. In case you are unable to get the details on the broker’s app, contact their customer care team for assistance.
A Demat account can be opened as fast as within 24 hours if the KYC is verified and the documents submitted are correct.
If the user chooses to update their KYC details during the account opening flow itself, then it has to be verified by the KYC Registration Agency (KRA) before the Demat account is opened as per SEBI guidelines.
SEBI has been directed to upload all client information, obtained through the KYC process, to the KRA agency. This agency serves as the central repository for client data across various brokers. Opening a new account is only possible if the data has been uploaded and successfully verified/registered with the KRA agency. To check the real-time status of KYC data, please follow these steps:
It is mandatory to link Aadhaar card with mobile number to open a Demat account. SEBI has made it mandatory for brokers to use Aadhaar-based e-KYC (Know Your Customer) authentication for account opening. If your Aadhaar is not linked with a mobile number, you are required to link it on priority. The same can be completed by visiting either an Aadhaar enrollment center or mobile service provider’s store. Once your UIDAI is linked with mobile, you can open a Demat account by submitting the required documents and complete the e-KYC process through broker’s website or mobile app.
