The 3-in-1 account consists of 3 separate accounts open together including a Bank Account (a normal bank account where your money resides), a Trading Account (a share broker account which allows you to trade in equity, F&O etc. segments) and a Demat account (it holds the equity shares purchased by you).
3-in-1 Account = Bank Account + Trading Account + Demat Account
The beauty of 3-in-1 account is seamless transaction between these three accounts. It also offers wide range of investment products under this account.
When the account holder buy shares through trading account; the money get automatically debited from the saving bank account and share are automatically credited to the demat account. Similar way when shares are sold through trading account; the money gets credited to the bank account and shares are withdrawn from demat account. The money remain in your bank account can be used like any normal bank account (i.e. you can withdraw that using your debit card).
While the cost of trading is generally high with the companies offering 3-in-1 account, the hassle free investing and integrated financial solution provide unique benefits.
