Create a Zerodha account either online or offline
A customer must open a trading account and a demat account with Zerodha in order to trade (in stocks, commodities, or currencies) or invest (in stocks, mutual funds). Customers who wish to trade only in derivatives do not need a demat account.
Zerodha offers three different types of accounts:
Account for stock and currency derivatives trading.
To take delivery of stocks, you’ll need a demat account.
To trade commodity futures on the MCX, you’ll need a commodity account.
Zerodha also offers a 2-in-1 account (a combination of a trading and a demat account) that allows for seamless automatic transactions between the two.
Zerodha Account Termination
If you don’t utilise your Zerodha Trading or Demat account for six months, it will be deleted. Call Zerodha to reactivate this dormant trading account.
If you are a Zerodha customer who is no longer using the account or has gone to another broker, you should close the account to avoid paying AMC fees. It also lowers the chances of someone else exploiting the account.
Zerodha customers have the option to close their accounts at any moment. The only way to close a Zerodha account is to fill out an Account Closure Request Form. Accounts can’t be closed through the website or by contacting customer service.
The application form can be found in the ‘Downloads & Resources section of Zerodha’s website. The customer can fill out the form, sign it, and send it to the Bangalore office by courier.
The account may take up to two working days to terminate. Customers receive an email update on the status of their account closure procedure.
Before terminating the account, pay off all outstanding debts.
All of your securities should be transferred from your Zerodha demat account to your other demat account.
Zerodha does not charge a fee to close an account.
