Trading requires a Demat account. Often, we end up with multiple Demat accounts, leaving a few unused. As a result, fees and maintenance charges are incurred on our Demat accounts. In this case, closing the inactive or zero balance Demat accounts makes sense. Knowing how to close a Demat account makes it easy and helpful when you need to do so. Closing a demat account with Angel One is simple and free!

Close an Angel One Account – Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Account Closure Form – The first step is to complete the Account Closure Form.

Step 2: Visit DP’s office – To complete the closure process, you must go to the DP’s office (which may be a bank or an investment firm) and submit all required documents.

Step 3: After Submitting Form – It takes 7-10 business days for the account to be closed after submitting the form. 

Your DP (Depository Participant) will send you a letter 7-10 days after you submit the account closure form. It is simple to check the letter once you receive it. Try logging into your account. Your login details will not be available if your Demat account is closed because your Demat account number ceases to exist.

You can also send an email to with “Requesting Account Closure” as the subject line. Only a client ID is required if the mail is sent from your registered email address. Stating the reason for closure is optional. If the mail is not received through a registered email account, an additional account closure form must be filled.
