Upstox Account Opening Process

In this article you will know about the process of opening Upstox account opening.

Many of us don’t know about what is Demat and Trading account.

They don’t know where to use which account. So in this article you are going to know all those information.

All about Demat and Trading Account?

Let us know first about Demat account now.

What is Demat Account?

Demat account is the account in which we actually hold the shares.

In the simplest terms, dematerialized account or demat account allows the investors to hold and manage their shares and securities electronically. With the passing of the Depositories Act, 1996. The transactions around the handling of securities have become too quicker and hassle-free.

Owing to this mandate passed by SEBI in the year 1996, it is now compulsory to have a demat account in case you would want to invest your money in the stock market. Therefore, if you want to trade on a stock exchange say BSE or NSE, you need to have a demat account.

De-materialisation is a whole new wave of how the stock market operates in the present day.

What is Stock Market Trading Account?

A demat account is more like a medium to store/hold the securities that you already have in your portfolio.

Demat account is like your locker which holds your securities assets.

But you cannot buy or sell through your demat account, for that, you need a trading account. A trading account is like an intermediary between your bank/ savings account and your demat account.

When you open an account with Upstox then he opens one account with him that is called a trading account.

From which you are going to actually place trades in the market.

Who will open Demat and Trading Account?

Generally Demat account is opened by a DP that is Distributor Participant of Depository companies.

In India, there are two Depository Companies are there. That is, CDSL and NSDL.

Upstox is the broker who will help you to open these both account without any hassles.

Because Upstox is also a DP of CDSL.
