Can a demat account be opened if a trading or commodity account exists?

To open a demat account when a trading account already exists, courier the demat application form (PDF) to Zerodha. The demat account will be opened only if the client is KYC compliant. Non-KYC-compliant clients must courier the KYC form (PDF) and the demat application form. To know the KYC status, see What is Know Your Customer(KYC)? How can I check my KYC status?

If a trading account was opened earlier where the equity segment was not enabled, courier the segment addition form (PDF) and the demat application.

Clients with IL&FS demat accounts or only a commodity account are required to open a Zerodha trading and demat account. To learn how to open a Zerodha account, see How to switch demat account from IL&FS to Zerodha?

Courier the forms to the following address:

153/154, 4th Cross, J.P Nagar 4th Phase,
Opp. Clarence Public School,
Bengaluru - 560078

Once the form is received, the demat account will be opened within 72 working hours.
