What is a CMR Copy?

The Client Master Report (CMR) is a PDF document issued by the broker that contains the entire information of the client who has opened a Demat account. It includes important details of the client such as:

  • Personal information such as Name, Address, Date of birth, Phone number, Email ID

  • KYC information such as PAN details, Aadhaar number, Nomination Details

  • Details of all the bank accounts linked to the Demat account.

  • Demat Account information such as DP ID, Client ID, Account Status and others.


Why Client Master Report is required and Why it is important

Client Master Report has crucial information about the client and is used by the client in multiple ways, Such as:

  • It serves as a certificate of Demat Account.

  • It enables you to link your existing Demat account with a new or additional trading account with a different broker.

  • It is a crucial document when it comes to transfer of shares from one Demat account from one broker to another Demat account to another broker.

  • Acts as legal proof of your securities’ final destination.

  • Ensures that there are no manual errors or misunderstandings.

  • CMR Copy is the key document for doing off-market transactions. It is a KYC requirement for Unlisted brokers to get a CMR copy of a client before carrying out any transaction.

Mainly Unlisted brokers ask for CMR to verify two important things:

  1. To verify from which bank account funds are coming.

  2. To which Demat account shares will get transferred.


Detail of the information present in CMR Copy

Some important information present in CMR Copy is explained below in brief:

Depository Participant ID (DP ID)

It is a unique number provided by National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) or Central Depository Securities Limited (CDSL) (CDSL).

Client ID

This is a kind of identification number which is provided by your depository (NSDL/CDSL).

Account Status

Your account's status indicates whether it is active or inactive.

Account Opening Date

The date on which your Demat account was established.

Account Closure Date

Subordinate Status (BO)

It shows the sub-status of the account holder. If the account holder's status is Individual, he may have a Resident or NRI sub-status.

Account Types

You can refer to the type of account you've set up here. There are three types of Demat accounts:

  1. Regular Demat Account: This is the type of account that Indian people use.

  3. Non-Repatriable Demat Account: An NRI Demat account allows you to move funds outside of India but not within India.


This determines whether the Demat account is owned by a resident or an NRI. If you are a non-resident Indian (NRI), the broker must follow the RBI's and the Foreign Exchange Management Act's (FEMA) rules.
