How to Add, and Change Nominee in the Demat account Online? – NSDL Speede App

The facility to add, and change nominees in the Demat Account is available online on the NSDL site. You can modify or give a nomination online with a click of a button.

Covid came as a rude shock to most of us. Almost all of us saw some near and dear one going to the hospital and not returning. Unfortunately, many people struggled not only with the loss of life but also with their financial situation in the event of the absence of a will or nomination by the bread owner which meant a tortuous journey of visits to various offices to be able to withdraw the Investments made by the family member.

A Demat account is required to hold your shares in the Demat format. 

Nomination is a facility that a depository provides to every Demat account holder. When you open a Demat account you can nominate any individual to receive the shares, debentures, mutual funds, and others that are in your Demat account. On your death, on giving proof of the death the Investments are transferred seamlessly into the nominee’s account. While this facility has been available for many years its true importance has been realized during the past three years of Covid.

SEBI released a circular that, all Demat account holder needs to update the nominee in their Demat as well on Mutual Fund Portfolios by 31st March 2023. If the nomination is not made Demat account will be frozen for any debits.
