Is Demat account required for Options Trading?


Open an Instant Account with Zerodha

Options contracts in India are settled in cash and there are no deliveries involved. Whatever the profit/loss is settled in cash. The profit will be credited to your account and loss would be deducted from the trade value. So, a trader doesn't need a demat account for Options trading. However, he would need a trading account and a linked savings bank account to buy/sell Call and Put options from the exchanges.
