What is a Depository?
A depository is a system where securities (like shares, debentures, bonds, government securities, mutual fund units etc) of an investor are held in electronic form. A depository can be compared to a bank. An investor has to open an account with the Depository through a depository participant, just as he opens an account with the bank. In India, there are two Depositories, namely Central Depository Services Ltd (CDSL) and National Securities Depository Ltd. (NSDL).
What is a Depository Participant?
A Depository Participant (DP) is an agent appointed by the Depository who is authorized to offer depository services to all investors. They are the intermediaries between the depository and the investors. An investor cannot directly open a DEMAT account with the depository. The DP opens the account with the Depository and takes up the responsibility of maintaining the account and updating them as per the instructions given by the investor from time to time.
Who is Beneficiary owner?
The person who holds the DEMAT account is the beneficiary owner. In case of a joint account, the account holders will be the beneficiary holders of that joint account.
What is BO ID?
The DEMAT account number of the beneficiary owner (s) is known as the BO ID.
What is DP ID?
The number of the depository participant allotted by the depository is known as the DP ID.
