If you do not pay the AMC for you're demat account, following things will happen:

  1. You will be bombarded with reminders via Email, SMS and Phone Calls by the broker.
  2. After some time, your demat account is declared a dormant account (inactive). This means you can't do any transaction until it's reactivated.
  3. To reactivate, you have to pay the reactivation fee (~ Rs 500) and clear all the dues (AMC + interest).
  4. To close a dormant demat account; you have to reactivate it first.
  5. If you have no holdings and have a dormant account with a broker, they will not allow you to open another account.
  6. The brokers (depository participants or DP) hold the dormant account forever. They will keep sending you reminders and a demat account statement.


  • The time to declare an account dormant, reactivation fee, interest rate, etc differs by a broker to broker.
  • Open a Lifetime AMC Free Demat Account, if you are not an active investor.

I have opened a demat in 2001 and no phone number and email registered that time. I have few shares at that time and after that there was no communication from them. Now when I enquired regarding the same they are asking me to pay Fee along with interest which is around 40k which is almost same as that of my shares value. I have not received any communication from bank as I don't have the updated contact details. Can you please suggest what's the best way to come out of this??
