2. Select the option 'I wish to nominate' (If you wish to add nominees) 

3. Enter the required Nominee details along with the Identification proof (You can add up to three nominees to your Demat account) and click on 'Submit.'

On submitting, a Digio e-sign pop-up will appear in a new window. In case the pop-up does not appear, you can enable it by selecting the option 'Always allow' and clicking on 'Done' as displayed in the image below:

4. Once submitted, a Digio eSign pop-up will appear. Click on 'Proceed to eSign' and complete the procedure through your Aadhaar OTP.
