income proof for derivatives

I am a student and i want to trade in F&O , but i don’t have income proof as I am a student. Is there any way i can trade derivatives .

Presently you only have to send past six months bank statement to zerodha for trading F&O.
However, this rule might be changed in the near future.

Can I submit my payslip (salary in USD) as a income proof to activte FNO?

If you already have Zerodha account you can upload your pay slip as Income proof.

If you don’t have account you can open one online, you can read this post to know the process.

If you want to open NRI account you can read this for more information.

If I upload income proof as 6 month bank statement of a bank which is different from the bank account linked with Zerodha, will that be accepted? Both bank accounts are in my name.

Yes, it will be accepted. The bank account need not be linked to your trading account. Just make sure the bank account is in your name.

Whenever I try to update the income proof on console, initially it gets updated, but when you visit it later on, it doesn’t show the ‘pending’ status as it should and goes back to the initial status as before. Took the screenshot when I did it yesterday & today

And this is the present status:

Have created a ticket for this ( #20211223895662 ), but no solution. This has happened in previous years as well, please advice what to do, @ShubhS9 & @nithin.
