It is better to close your Sharekhan trading and demat account if you are not using it for some reason. There are Annual Maintenance Charges (AMC) and other charges associated with demat accounts, and these charges continue to accrue interest until they are settled. In order to close your account, you will be required to pay all the unsettled dues before the application is processed. So, if you don’t plan to use your demat account in the future, it is better to close it. This article explains how to close the Sharekhan Account.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Closing an Account 

You cannot close a Sharekhan account online by email/chat or by contacting customer support. The account can only be closed by filling out a physical form. However, please note that before you close the Sharekhan trading & Demat account, you must:

  • Close all open positions in your trading account.
