How to activate the NSDL account?

Invest brokerage-free Equity Delivery and Direct Mutual Funds (truly no brokerage). Pay flat Rs 20 per trade for Intra-day and F&O. Open Instant Account and start trading today.

You cannot directly open a demat account with NSDL. You have to open a Demat account with one of NSDL's DP (stock broker).

Once your Demat account is active, you can activate the IDeAS facility offered by NSDL, which allows you to view balances and transactions in Demat accounts.

You can visit and click on the New User Registration Tab. Enter the following details on the registration page;

  • DP ID (of your DP where you have opened your Demat account)
  • Client ID (provided by your DP)
  • Choose your User ID (between 3 to 8 characters)
  • User Name
  • Email ID
  • Password and Confirm Password (between 8 to 16 characters), both alphanumeric.

You can enter the OTP received on your registered mobile number, and your NSDL IDeAS account will get activated.
