    The importance of demat account is to have the holding in elec tronic form. It releases the person from the risk of having shares in physical from like loss/defacement, misplacement etc. and also while taking delivery the physical form entails delay, the chance of the holders signature not tallying with the records of the company.
    You can easily seek the services from any Bank/Broker/STOCK HOLDING CORPORATION OF INDIA, who will help you in complying with the formalities. Good luck.
