You need an identity proof , a saving bank account and a PAN card. To get a PAN card, aplly for ait online at NSDL site or this website called UTITSL. It cost about ₹100 or so. Obtaining a permanent account number(PAN) is the first step towards any trade in the stock market.


Before purchasing shares online, you have to compulsorily open a Demat account. Investing  in equity shares in physical form entails a long and lengthy procedure, lot of paperwork and risk of getting fake shares. Demat account is used to hold shares and securities in dematerialized/electronic format. Having a Demat account allows you to buy shares and store them safely. Apply online to NSDL or CDSL for a demat account or get your chosen share broker to do it for you. It can be used to hold a variety of investments like equity shares, exchange traded funds, mutual funds, bonds and government securities .


The next step is to open a trading account . A trading account is used to purchase and sell shares in stock markets . once you have a demat account, and want to purchase shares online , you need a trading account . While purchasing shares online, you have to quote your unique trading account number.


As you cannot purchase shares directly from stock markets , you have to use the services of a broker. A broker is a financial intermediary, acting as the link between you and the stock market. Market regulator, Securities Exchange Board Of India(SEBI) Certifies brokers in India.


You cannot purchase shares online without having a bank account. Your trading account links your demat account with your bank account. If you want to purchase online shares , then you have to make the request order through your trading account. The Broker Will then forward the transactions for settlement in the stock exchange. Post settlement, the shares will be transferred to your Demat account within the working days, while the necessary charges, or purchase cost will be debited from your bank account.


To create a database of all market participants and investors, SEBI has made it compulsory for investors to get a UIN through point of service(POS) agents appointed by NSDL. You must, however note that a UIN is only required when you are trading in capital of Rs.1 Lakh or more. If you want to purchase online shares below the amount of Rs.1 Lakh, you don’t require UIN. After following the five steps listed above , you are now all set to purchase shares online. Once you place a purchase order, it will be matched with a similar sale order in the stock exchange.
