Dematerialisation Of Shares

The process of converting securities (i.e. shares, bonds etc.) held in physical form into electronic form is known as dematerialization. Under this process, securities held by an investor in physical form are converted to an equal number of securities in electronic form and are credited into the investor's demat account maintained by him with his Depository Participant (DP).

Dematerialisation of shares is optional and an investor can still hold shares in the physical form. However, he/she has to demat the shares if he/she wishes to sell the same through the stock exchanges. Similarly, if an investor purchases shares, he/she will get delivery of the shares in demat form only. Trading at the stock exchanges shall compulsorily be in demat form.

The shareholder is required to approach a Depository Participant (DP) and apply in a prescribed application form for opening the Depository account. Alternatively, you can contact the Company officials for the same.

Open an account with a Depository Participant (DP).Submit duly filled Dematerialisation Request Form (DRF) signed by all the shareholders Obtain an acknowledgement from the DP.

On receipt of DRF as above, DP will generate a Dematerialization Request Number (DRN) and the said DRN is electronically transmitted to the Company/ Registrar and Transfer Agent (RTA) through the concerned Depository.

Simultaneously, DP will send the physical certificates with the original DRF to the Company / RTA for verification and confirmation.

The Company / RTA, on receipt of DRF and share certificates as above will process the said request and if the DRF is found to be in order {viz. verification of signature and certificates}, will electronically confirm the said request.

The DP on receipt of such confirmation, will update the demat account of the investor.

If you hold shares in the electronic form, you have the option of converting your holding to the physical form by submitting a duly filled Rematerialisation Request Form (RRF) through your DP.

The charges for demat have to be borne by the shareholder. The charges differ from DP to DP and therefore you will have to contact your DP for the details regarding the same.

Shares should be registered in your favour before they can be dematted. Please follow the procedure explained in the section pertaining to transfer of shares.

Yes. With effect from 5th April, 1999 it has become mandatory to trade shares in demat form. However, you can exercise the option of holding the shares in physical form.

The rights of the shareholders holding shares in demat form are at par with holders of shares in physical form. On the record date, the Depository Participants will provide a list of demat account holders indicating the number of shares held in electronic form (known as Benpos - Beneficiary Position). On the basis of Benpos, the Company will make dividend payments in favour of the demat account holders.

Also, you will be eligible to procure the Annual Report and can rightfully attend the AGM as a shareholder. It is advisable to register your NECS mandate with your Depository Participant to enable us to credit all your dividends electronically.

Common risk factors applicable to trading in physical shares like mismatch in signatures, loss in postal transit, etc., are absent since dematted shares are traded scrip-less.

In case of any dispute, please contact your Depository Participant.

It is advisable if the documents are accompanied by a duly executed Transmission Form. The request letter should be duly completed and signed by the survivors, as per the specimen signatures registered with Link Intime so that the name of the deceased can be deleted from the Company's records as well as from the certificates.

The Company, on receipt of the said documents, will delete the name of deceased shareholder from its records and return the share certificates to the applicant/registered holder with the necessary endorsement.

For securities held in electronic form, please contact your depository participant.

In case no person has been appointed as nominee by the deceased shareholder, the legal heir(s) is / are requested to submit the following documents along with the share certificates to the Company:

Request for transmission in writing duly signed by all the legal heirs (transferees)

Certified true copy of the death certificate

The legal heirs are required to get the Will probated by the High Court/District Court of competent jurisdiction and then send us a probated copy of the Will. This should be accompanied by a relevant schedule/annexure setting out the details of the shares, the relevant share certificates in original, the transmission form, self-attested PAN card and address proofs of all the claimants.

To get the shares transmitted in your name, kindly obtain a Succession Certificate/Letter of Administration of the last deceased joint holder in your favour and follow the procedure for transmission of shares.

In order to ascertain that Will in question is the last Will and testament made by the deceased, it is important that the same is authenticated/probated by the Court. This is to protect the interest of the investors at large and to obviate any future claims/disputes on the same.

As per law, the joint holder is deemed to be having indivisible ownership of the joint property and the Company cannot ascertain as to how or why the name was included. As per the Articles of Association of the Company, the surviving joint holders are the only persons recognised as having title to the shares.

Nomination In Case Of Shareholding

Section 72 of the Companies Act, 2013 provides the facility of nomination to shareholders. This facility is mainly useful for individuals holding shares in sole name. In the case of joint holding of shares by individuals, nomination will be effective only in the event of death of all joint holders.

Nomination in respect of shares held in physical form can be sent to the Company/ RTA. After the Company/ RTA receives the form and finds it in order, a registration number will be allotted to the nomination. A duplicate copy of the nomination form submitted by you will be returned to you with an endorsement indicating the registration number and date.

It is not necessary to send your share certificate at the time of registration of nomination.

A nomination once made can be revoked by submitting a fresh nomination. If the nomination is made by joint holders, and one of the joint-holders dies, the surviving joint holder/s can make a fresh nomination by revoking the existing nomination.

In case of shares held in the physical form, upon the death of a shareholder, the nominee is entitled to get the shares transmitted in his favour. He/she is required to submit a notice in writing to this effect along with the original share certificate and an attested copy of the death certificate of the deceased shareholders.

If a nominee opts for registration of shares in his/her name, he/she has to submit a Transmission Form along with a copy of the PAN card and proof of address, to the satisfaction of the Company.
