Holding capital gain bonds in zerodha demat

I intend to buy goi capital gain bonds like the ones listed at https://www.hdfcsec.com/productpage/54-ec .

However as a newcomer it is not clear to me if I can ask these bonds to be credited to my zerodha demat account just for safe keeping. I understand that these can’t be traded, but was hoping I should atleast be able to just hold these.

Could some one clarify.


Yes, capital gain bonds can be held in Demat form. I presume you’ll have to use a DIS slip of the broker where you are buying the bond and provide them with your Zerodha DP details(CMR copy) for them to transfer it. I’m not sure of the details you have to enter in the DIS slip but your broker will certainly clarify this for you.
