Comfort of Opening an Account

SEBI has made it mandatory to complete a procedure for creating a Demat account which the service provider has to follow.

For instance, the Demat account can be opened by using the e-KYC process, where the whole process of account opening can be authenticated using your Aadhaar details. The e-KYC process is done online, and the client needs to do a final self-verification through a video camera or through personal verification. 

Transaction Rate and Brokerage

In today’s world, there are many stock brokers and brokerage firms who are aligned to provide you with very low broking costs. You need to control which broker or trading company you want to open Demat account with. If it is for trading, then you must negotiate with your stock broker.
