How can the address registered with an NRI Zerodha be changed?

  • A citizen of India or a person of Indian origin who resides outside India for more than 182 days is known as a Non-Resident Indian (NRI). If a resident individual account is held after becoming an NRI, the account must be converted to an NRI-NRO account.
  • NRIs and Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) must ensure their residential status is marked as Non resident on the ITD website before opening an account. To learn how to update the status, see How to update the resident status of PAN for an NRI & PIO account?
  • If the KYC status is Non resident, there is no need to notarise the documents. If not, the documents must be notarised by the Indian embassy, authorised officials of overseas branches of scheduled commercial banks registered in India, public notaries, court magistrates, judges, or the Indian embassy or consulate general in the country where the NRI resides. The attesting authority should affix a verified with original stamp, name, designation, authority or employee code, signature and date on the said documents. To check the KYC status, create a ticket and mention the PAN and date of birth.
  • Equity F&O trading is not available by default with NRI accounts. F&O trading requires a Custodial Participant (CP) code with Zerodha partner, Orbis Financial Services for custodial services. See What are the trading restrictions for NRIs?

The address registered with a Non-Resident Indian (NRI) Zerodha account can only be changed offline, unlike resident individual accounts that can be changed online.
