Understanding Demat and Trading account relationship

Some of the beginners to online stock trading do not understand relationship between Share Trading account and Demat Account . In this short article lets see the relationship between Demat account , Trading Account and your Bank Account . We will also see how many trading or Demat account you can have in total .

Work Flow

Below is a short chart where I have tried to give the flow when you buy a share . click to Enlarge


Demat Account : Account where your Shares are stored in electronic form .

Trading Account : An account which is used to place orders for Buying and Selling of shares .

So Trading account is an interface between your Bank account and your Demat account , when you buy something , Trading account takes money from your Bank Account (Its already taken from your Bank account and saved in Trading account) and buys shares and stores it in your Demat account . When you Sell something , Your trading account takes back the shares from your Demat account and Sells them in Stock Market and get back the money and that goes back to your Bank account (actually you manually transfer it to Bank account from Trading account most of the times .

Question : Does any one know maximum how many demat account can one open ?

I had opened a DEMAT account with an institution at 2011.I haven’t done any transaction and didn’t closed the demat account.
It is in deactivated status.I don’t want to pay the AMC for the same.I would like to know what are the consequence if i don’t close it and keep it like that.
1.Will that account be deleted once it becomes dormant
2.Do need to close the account.
I am not interested pay any AMC and they don’t have any ECS activated for the charges

Since i was changing my resident status, ICICI suggested me to close the domestic trading account (keeping demat account active). This enables ICICI to convert my domestic savings account to NRO and open a new NRE account. I am told that i should now open PINS and Non-PINS accounts now and link the domestic demat account to the Non-PINS (NRO). When i look into the AMC for the PINS and Non-PINS, it is extremely costly. I am not an active trader anymore – hence, is it possible for me to keep the demat account active with holdings for a period of time – and open the PINS/Non-PINS when i would like to sell these shares – which may be a few years later? Also will i continue to pay the AMC charges for the demat account with my holdings?

Just 3 years ago I had open a trading a/c with hdfc security I took place single trade to buy then no transaction in it till today. The hdfc is charged me AMC in my hdfc linked saving a/c which amount (approximately Rs.4000/-) are more than my investment of share (Rs.1000/-but market value is Rs.720/-)in that particular trading a/c . I want to close it, but they would be debited amount in my saving a/c. & say ur a/c had deposited the amount of dividend is shown transaction in it, which status of a/c is an automatically operation in it so u haven’t telling this , we have right to recover the charges from ur linked saving a/c. till u would be paying a charges to clear from these a/c.
May I close this a/c without paying any AMC ?
May I change my bank account from hdfc to another without paying any charges ?
May I change my trading a/c from hdfc to any other without paying AMC ?
Pls. Guide me. When I open my saving a/c to hdfc they says me it is totally free & 3in1 a/c in zero balance saving a/c, dmat a/c, & trading a/ c. Now they can’t accepted my request of closing all these 3 a/c till the payment of that charges. What should I do action in legal ways? Pls. Co-op with ur right advice.

Yes, you can transfer securities between demat accounts held with the same depository or other depiository. The same is termed as off-market transfer as Stock Exchanges’ intervention is not required in that case. You just need to fill up the Delivery Instruction Slip and mention proper account details of the destination account where securities need to be transferred.

Is trading account necessary along with DEMAT account?

Is there any alternative where in one has only demat account and start investing via some Mutual fund distributor or SEBI registered stock broker?

I am asking because I want to invest in RGESS and don’t want to pay additional annual maintenance fee/charges for trading account. I have seen SK etc opens free demat and trading account and start charging heavy maintenance charges from next year onwards just to keep the account open.

Could you please tell where I can open only demat account which is free from any other hidden charges (annual charges etc)

If you have any other good suggestions, please let us know.

It’s completely your wish how you want to trade. You can either trade direct with the online trading account or can get it done through some agent.

As far as your concern about free Demat and trading account is related, you can get these opened for free, but the companies charge yearly maintenance fees for keeping your shares and other investments in the account. If anyone claims to offer free account, they are completely misguiding you.

Yes, you can reduce the fees by selecting discount service brokers like My Value Trade. It gives you access to multiple banks and allows trading in shares, commodities, derivatives and mutual funds from the same account.

After doing some research, came to know about Basic Service Demat Account (BSDA).
One can open BSDA account with any DPs and as per law they cannot levi annual maintenance charge for value holdings upto Rs 50,000. I have seen many DPs discourage or don’t share any information on BSDA facility to prospective new customers.

I have opened my BSDA account with SBICaps. When I visited their Demat account manager, they were reluctant to open one or giving one pretext or other, but after repeated insistence, they agreed. With this account there is no annual maintenance charge for trade upto Rs 50000.
If traded more than Rs 50000, then they have some slabs for Annual charges.

Anyways my purpose was for RGESS which allows investment upto Rs50000 and it satisfies well with this objective.

May be this information would be useful to someone.

Hi Manish

I have ICICI 3-in-1 account and recently I changed my trading account to RKSV while demat account is same. I have shares in my icici account which I want to sell. My question is, how do I transfer shares from icici account to RKSV trading account and once I transferred those shares, how long they will be in my trading account. Also what are the standard charges for shares transfer?

Thanks & Regards
