Client Code

It may be noted that the clients whose PAN is linked with Aadhaar as per UCC database on or before June 30, 2023, will be permitted to trade on the Exchange platform w.e.f July 01, 2023.

Further, subsequent to the due date of June 30, 2023, if the PAN-Aadhar linking status is not updated in the Exchange database, then such clients shall neither be permitted to trade w.e.f July 01, 2023, nor will they be able to square up their open positions, until they comply with the aforesaid requirement.
