    I am the Karta of the HUF, but I do not have a PAN card on my firm’s name. Is it possible to open an HUF account with you?

    • Tejas Khoday Tejas Khoday says:

      Hi Rakesh, A PAN Card is a must if you want to trade in the stock markets. The exceptions available for PAN are as follows:

      1. In case of transactions undertaken on behalf of the Central government and/or state government and by officials appointed by courts such as official liquidator, receiver etc.
      2. Investors residing in the state of Sikkim.
      3. UN entities/multilateral agencies that are exempt from paying taxes/filing returns in India.
      4. SIP of mutual funds < ₹50,000/- per annum. 5. FIIs, MFs, VCs, Scheduled commercial banks, multilateral and bilateral financial institutions etc., Howver, their PAN identity is verified by custodians.

  • Avatar Options_Playground says:

    Dear Tejas, we are a group of traders who want to start a proprietary trading company and we were wondering if you can help us with your expertise with the legal structure and the way to go about it. We are very much interested in Fyers because I have read very good reviews about your trading platforms. I currently live in Mumbai but can come down on appointment.

    Can i link my other Demat Account to Fyers trading account? If i can, is it possible to trade in delivery?

    • Tejas Khoday Tejas Khoday says:

      Hi, you can. But it is inconvenient when you want to sell shares as you will have to do it through the stockbroker with whom you got the demat account from. I would recommend you open a new account for a hassle-free experience.
