There are no charges to add or modify a secondary bank account.

Secondary bank accounts can only be used to transfer money to the Zerodha account. Withdrawals cannot be made into the secondary bank account and can only be made into the primary bank account.

Did you know? If a joint bank account is being linked as the secondary bank account, and the Zerodha account holder is not the first holder, create a ticket and submit any one of the following bank proofs:

  • A self-attested scanned copy of personalised cancelled cheque with the name printed on the cheque leaf.
  • A self-attested copy of the bank statement with the name, IFSC and MICR numbers clearly visible.
  • A self-attested copy of the bank passbook with the name, IFSC and MICR numbers clearly visible.
