How do I transfer from one demat account to another demat account?

Transfer of securities from one account to another account can be affected through off-market transactions (i.e. without routing through the broker or stock exchanges) by furnishing the depository participants identity number and the client identity no. The duly filled in slip is to be submitted to the concerned DP with whom you have the demat account. The transfer is affected by NSDL after receiving the executed document forwarded by the DP on behalf of the Client. Charges are applicable and the transferor will have to disclose the market value of the shares intended to be transferred in a separate form which is to be annexed along with the off-market transfer slip.

What are the maintenance changes for a demat account? Are there any hidden charges or processing fees on the transactions I do on demat account?

Maintenance charges are also known as folio maintenance charges, and is generally levied in advance.

The transaction fee is charged for crediting/debiting securities to and from the account on a monthly basis. While some DPs, such as SBI, charge a flat fee per transaction, Some DPs charge only for debiting the securities while others charge for both.
