You can easily close your Demat account in HDFC bank by sending an email to their Demat closure mail id [email protected]. This mail must be sent from the registered email id.
There are two methods of Demat account closing
- Visit to nearest HDFC securities office and get close by filling the form and submitting it.
- Write a simple mail as per the screenshot below and there should not be any holdings in the Demat account the time you will mail them. Your account will get closed in five working days. In my case, I mailed them on 22 Jun and account got closed on 27 Jun.
For reference check the screenshots of email I received after sending above email to HDFC.
After that response I received final closing status on email five days later.
P.S.:- all of these details you can get from Netbanking login (Demat section).
PS:- By new net banking layout, some of the information that users can get from is NetBanking -> DEMAT -> Enquire -> Client Info
