NRI Account

Living outside India, but still want to play in the Indian stock markets? Here's an account that lets you enjoy the triple benefits of a savings account, a demat account and a trading account all in one place.

So be it buying equities, futures or options, transferring funds between accounts or even doing some good old fashioned research into the stock markets, Kotak Securities’ NRI account puts the power in your hands.

How to Get Started?

To successfully trade in the stock markets, you need a demat and a trading account. You will then have to link your savings bank account with these two accounts to seamlessly transfer funds.

Kotak Securities gives you two options to set up your NRI account.
  • If you have opened a savings bank and demat accounts with another bank, all you need to do is create a trading account with Kotak Securities. You will then have to link both your bank and demat accounts with the Kotak Securities trading account. This is available only in the offline mode.
  • If you do not have a demat account, you can open one with Kotak Securities. You will also need to open a trading account. Then, you will have to link you savings bank account with your Kotak Securities trading account and demat account.

That’s it, you now have a multi-functional NRI account that you can operate with ease 24x7 on 365 days from any corner of the world!
