Recently Zerodha has simplified their account opening process. You can now complete the whole Zerodha account opening process within 5 minutes with the help of your Aadhar card. I will explain step-by-step procedures of Zerodha account opening process if you have Aadhar card.
First fill up your name, phone number and email id in the form below. Remember the mobile number and email id should not be in Zerodha database already OR you will get a duplicate record error.
Next, visit the Zerodha application form page by clicking HERE.
The page asks you to log in with your email id and a password. Remember you will get your password in your mail once you submit the form above. If you do not receive password kindly use the FORGOT PASSWORD link to reset the password.
The next page will now ask for your PAN card details. Please provide your PAN card number and date of birth. Make sure that you enter your PAN card details correctly as that can not be changed later.
Now once you submit the PAN details it will forward you to the payment page where you need to pay the Zerodha account opening fee. Choose what type of account you want to open (Trading+Demat Rs. 300) OR (Commodity Rs. 200) OR Trading+Demat+Commodity (Rs. 500).
Once the account opening fee is paid you will receive a mail confirming the payment from Major Pay.
Now the system will ask you to upload the following things:
1) Your PAN card
2) Your Aadhar card
3) Your bank statement (preferably 6 months)
4) Your cancelled cheque (should be personalized, having your name printed)
Your Aadhar will be used to digitally sign the forms if you are already KRA / KYC verified. In this way, your client id can be generated within 5 minutes. You can also start trading once the account is opened and you will also receive trading id and password and back office id and password through the mail. But you need to submit 2 pages hard copies within next one week to continue trading.
