How to buy or sell stocks in minor accounts?
Minors cannot buy stocks. Instead, the guardian can either transfer existing stocks in their demat account or buy stocks and transfer them to the minor’s account. The guardian can initiate the transfer process with the Client Master Report (CMR). The CMR copy is sent to the registered email ID once the minor account is opened. See What is Client Master Report (CMR), and how to get it?
