A Demat account—short for dematerialised account—is an account that allows you to hold company shares and securities electronically. It essentially allows you to trade without the need to move physical share certificates. Not only is it a storehouse for your investments, but it also speeds up transactions and reduces costs. You can open a demat account , by filling in a certificate physically and submitting the necessary documents in person and getting the Account/ID. You could also opt for a digital demat account where the entire application process is online. The steps are similar: Fill in the application form, upload scanned copies of your documents, and complete the IPV.
No, it is not necessary to link a trading account to a demat account. You can hold one or more demat accounts that are not linked to a trading account.
However, linking a demat account with your trading account is essential to trade in the cash market. For example, to buy shares, you will need to place the order and dispense funds from the trading account. Once the order is processed, the shares will appear in your demat account. Some brokers offer both demat and trading accounts together for a seamless trading experience.
