Are you a day trader?

You can keep the Zerodha Demat account idle as long as you hold the Demat account and do not request to close it or freeze it.

The Demat account does not become inactive or dormant even when there is no activity or holdings in it. As specified by CDSL and SEBI, the DP needs to independently verify the instructions with the account holder before its execution if an instruction is received for a Demat account that has not been operative for more than six months.

The dormancy policy applies only to a trading account wherein, if there are no trades carried out by a client in the last twelve months across all Exchanges, the broker marks the trading account as Dormant.
