Primary bank account change procedure

There should be a feature to change the Primary bank account in dhan. I am not finding it in both dhan web or app.


Hi @ashu8115, first of all, welcome to Dhan community!

Currently, we do not have an online process to change the primary bank account on Dhan.

However, we support payin and payout from secondary banks and you can add upto four additional secondary banks in your Dhan account.

We hope this helps you.

Hi @ashu8115,

While we understand the importance, not many of our existing users have requested for this - the usual process is to add a secondary bank. This is still on our roadmap though.

Since you are one of our early users, I want to make sure I make this possible for you via the offline route. Kindly get in touch with me directly at and I’ll be happy to assist you!

I have just changed my primary bank account online at Zerodha (in 5 mins only).

My earlier Bank (primary account) has decided to sell their India business to other Bank and I do not wish to continue with this Bank.

I want to therefore change my primary bank account at Dhan online. Kindly enable this asap.

Eagerly waiting for this feature as i am also in queue to change my primary bank info.
Use case: I want all my dividends in primary account but pay in from secondary account.

Also in todays scenarios any offline process is human resource/cost intensive and definitely hassle and inconvenience for the user.

I am really delighted with experience at Dhan & transferred all my holding from Zerodha.

Hi @Dhan , @RahulDeshpande, can you also work on deleting the bank accounts online like the way u had introduced set as the primary bank option against each bank? I didn’t find any option to delete the bank accounts in dhan currently

Hi @sri1647,

Thanks for your suggestion. We will surely evaluate bank deletion feature on our platform.

Hi, Thanks for your reply. But is seems there is no procedure to date for bank account deletion/modification through the platforms/any other means. I don’t know even after these many years in the industry, how @Dhan had missed this basic one.

Or let me know if there is any existing procedure?

Hi @sri1647

We have this feedback with us, we will work on this to get this implemented very soon.

Hi @dhan team, any update on the above request?

Hi @sri1647

We will inform you once the bank deletion feature is live.

@Dhan I think now a days feedback is not given so much importance by any stock broker. Lost the eagerness to give feedback from today.
