Geojit launches India’s first online service for NRI investors to open demat, trading accounts title banner

In a first-of-its-kind initiative by a brokerage in India, Geojit Financial has launched a platform for Non-Resident External (NRE) and Non-Resident Ordinary (NRO) categories of investors to open online trading and Demat account services through Central Depository Services Ltd (CDSL). 

 

So far, brokerages were offering trading and Demat account opening facilities to NRI account holders only as a single category. An NRE account is a bank account opened in India for an NRI to park his foreign earnings while an NRO account is to manage the income earned by him in India. 

 

NRE and NRO account holders can now open trading and Demat accounts in five minutes through the platform hello.geojit.com, enhancing wider participation by the Indian diaspora in the country’s stock market. At present, NRIs in US and Canada will be unable to avail this online facility. 

 

“For the first time in India, Geojit has enabled the online opening of trading and demat accounts for NRE and NRO categories of Indians, entirely through CDSL. All that is required of a prospective participant is to have an Aadhaar linked mobile number and a Permanent Account Number (PAN). Indians located in any part of the world can now seamlessly open an account online and benefit from the India growth story,” said Jones George, Chief Digital Officer, Geojit.  

 

The online account opening platform was developed by Geojit Financial’s subsidiary, Geojit Technologies, and speaking about the product, its Executive Director, Anil Kumar, said, “We developed this platform as there are many non-resident Indians who are interested in investing in the stock markets but the delay in account opening is often a deterrent. Opening a trading and Demat account offline takes several days whereas, if all documents are in place, an online account can be opened in five minutes. Now for the first time, all NRIs can start investing in the Indian stock markets in a few clicks.”   

 

Geojit has been servicing the Indian diaspora for more than two decades and has an extensive presence in the GCC region via joint ventures and partnerships: Barjeel Geojit Financial Services LLC in UAE, BBK Geojit Securities KSC, in Kuwait and QBG Geojit Securities LLC in Oman. The company also has a presence in Bahrain through a business partnership with the Bank of Bahrain and Kuwait.  

 

As of 30 September 2021, Geojit has assets under custody and management to the tune of Rs. 61,000 crore and has over 11 lakh, active clients. Geojit has close to Rs. 6,000 crore of assets under management (AUM) from NRI clients.

I never knew any hacker can be able to recover stolen Bitcoin. I was scammed on a Telegram group early this year by a guy who promised to be paying 80% of my Capital every month. He lured me into investing about $84,000 worth of USDT and they kept telling me to increase my investment before I could withdraw my ROI. Just after I read about Hack West on Reddit, I decided to contact him, few days after my money was recovered. Write West via Hackwest@writeme.com or Whatsapp. + 1 424 307 2638.

My name is Harry. I'm very happy to share my testimonies. The best thing that has ever happened in my life is how I won the lottery. I am a man who believes that one day I will win the lottery. Finally my dreams came through when I emailed Dr Jatto. I spend so much money on tickets just to make sure I win. But I never knew there was always something behind every lucky winner until the day I met Dr Jatto online, which I saw many people have talked about that he's very great when it comes to casting lottery spells, so I decided to give him a try. I contacted this great Dr Jatto and he did a spell and gave me the winning lottery numbers. But believe me when the draws came out I was among the lucky winners. I won 60 million dollars, with this great man you can win millions of dollars through the lottery. I am very happy to meet this great man.
