Why do I need a BO ID?

A BO ID (Beneficial Owner Identification Number) is a 16-digit Demat account number registered with CDSL. Each broker/platform account has a different BO ID, but when you verify via TPIN linked to one Demat account, all holdings in that Demat account are verified to be sold. You can find your BO ID in your personal details under DP ID.

Unlike banks, stock brokers such as Upstox serve merely as intermediaries between customers and central depositories.
