Description: In a 'demat account' , shares and securities are held electronically instead of the investor taking physical possession of certificates. A demat account is opened by the investor while registering with an investment broker (or sub-broker). The demat account number is quoted for all transactions to enable electronic settlements of trades to take place. Every shareholder will have a demat account for the purpose of transacting shares.
