In India, current number of Demat account is roughly around 2400 lakh, i.e. around 2.4 Crore (24 million). The population of India is around 125 Crore. That means, only roughly around 2% of Indian population is having Demat account. That means, only 2% of Indian population invested in stock market. 

The other fact is that, big number of Demat account is not having significant transaction or large number of Demat account is having nill stock.
