Demat is an Account Which is Necessary to Buy or Sell Stocks

History of the Demat Account

Initially, the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) traded in the traditional old way, where buy and sell of shares took place with the help of Physical Share certificates. The old method of trading was referred to as “Trading in the Ring”. The traders shouted the prices in which they wanted to buy or sell the shares, and all those who were interested would trade money in exchange of physical share certificates. With the growth of Indian stock market, maintaining transactions with the help of these share certificates became difficult. Huge amount of paper work and manually keeping a record of bought and sold stocks became impossible.

In the year 1996, share market evolved to using the digital technology to perform trading transactions electronically. The Demat Accounts were introduced where all physical share certificates were converted to electronic forms that initiated the dematerialization process. The shares holders held a Demat Account for themselves and all the forms related to trading were deposited electronically in their respective Demat Accounts.
