Account-holders on Zerodha have permission to change their bank account details. Customers with a residential account can change their bank account details online. And once the customer has made the changes and saved them successfully, it takes 24-48 hours to map the new primary bank account on their Demat account. Besides, the previous bank account would convert into a secondary account after the new bank account is updated.
To modify the bank account details, ensure that your mobile number is linked to your Aadhar number. Either a non-individual account holder (HUF, Corporate or partnership) or a customer with their phone not linked to their Aadhar need to update the account details offline.
