re-Opening Zerodha Accounts

I’ve decided to return back to Zerodha for swing trading/investing. I want to start a fresh. I will do only equity delivery based (CNC) trades; if my price target met I may exit on the same day, else at a later date. I will not do any FNO or leveraged trades.

In the account re-opening application process, I don’t wish to submit the POA right now. Instead, I wish to place my delivery (CNC) sell instructions by using the CDSL TPIN authentication, to guard against unusual circumstances.

But there is a problem. Weblink & not opening from my computer, saying “Server Not Found”. Seems website is down from yesterday night.

Friends, please check & let us know those links are opening from your devices or not. If CDSL goes down often (see this Bulletin), then how CDSL TPIN authentication will work reliably?

I think NSDL is better & much secured. I never faced any problem with NSDL. Can I open a Zerodha DEMAT account with NSDL?

Can I link my ICICI Direct/Bank DEMAT (NSDL) account with Zerodha? If yes, what are the respective charges?

Someone from Zerodha, please guide me in re-opening my accounts (Equity Trading + DEMAT).

@lindo Can you.

Looks like your account has become dormant since you have not transacted for over a year. You will have to do a reKYC on your account to resume operations on the same. This is an online process and is explained in the support article here.

There was a POA that you have submitted with us during the account opening and hence there is no need for you to set up the CDSL TPIN.

Actually, I’ve closed my accounts before COVID-19 lockdown starts. My last transaction was on 2020-02-20 to exit my Zerodha demat (CDSL) holding positions.

As per customer care help docs, as I’ve closed my accounts, so I need to open my accounts afresh. Correct me if I’ve misunderstood something.

I want to revoke that POA (if not already revoked automatically in the accounts closing process). Instead, I want to use CDSL TPIN. More clearly, I don’t want to keep my shares in the broker’s pool account for a very long time. I will follow depository settlement cycles (T, T+1, T+2 etc) manually, to give delivery of stocks. For my plan to work correctly, CDSL must not go down often.
CDSL website is still down. Can you offer me NSDL demat account?
