Depository Participant Guided Tour / Introduction

In the NSDL system, the depository extends its services to investors through intermediaries called Depository Participants (DP) who as per SEBI regulations could be organisations involved in the business of providing financial services like banks, brokers, custodians and financial institutions.

Realising the potential in this market, all the custodians in India and a number of banks, financial institutions and major brokers have already joined as DPs and they are providing services in a number of cities. Many more organisations are in various stages of establishing connectivity with NSDL.

The admission of the DPs involves an evaluation by NSDL of their capability to meet with the strict service standards of NSDL and a further evaluation and approval by SEBI.
