To convert your NRE/NRO account to a resident trading & demat account the following documents would be required:

Account modification form
Required to update the bank and address details of your demat account
Trading account closure form
Required for closing the NRI trading account (2 copies if you're holdings both NRE and NRO accounts)
Trading application form

Only one account can be converted to resident account either NRE or NRO. Since a brokerage firm cannot open multiple resident trading accounts with the same PAN details, we will do a closure cum transfer for the other account.
