Dematerialization (Demat) is the process by which securities held in physical form evidencing the holding of securities by any person are cancelled and destroyed and the ownership thereof is entered into and retained in a fungible form on a depository by way of electronic balances. Demat facilitates paperless trading where by securities transactions are executed electronically reducing / mitigating possibility of loss of related documents and / or fraudulent transactions. Trading in demat form is regulated by the Depositories Act, 1996 and is monitored by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). The two depositories presently functioning in India are National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) and Central Depository Services (India) Limited (CDSL).

Yes, the shareholding can be De-materialized either fully or partly as desired. However, the shares can be traded only in demat form.

Yes, you can pledge your shareholding in the electronic form in favor of the lending institution by applying to your DP in the prescribed form. After repayment of the loan, which is secured by the pledge, you can request for redemption of the pledge, by applying to your DP.

As already stated, when the shares are bought through the Depository System, the shares are credited to your account with the DP. Thus, you are relieved of problems like bad delivery, fake certificates, shares under litigation, signature difference of transferor(s), etc. Besides, there is no need to fill a transfer form for transfer of shares and affix share transfer stamps. There will, however, be a nominal fee to be paid to the DP. There is saving in time and cost on account of elimination of posting of certificates. Above all, the threat of loss of certificates or fraudulent interception of certificates in transit, which has been causing lot of anxiety to the investor community in recent times, stands eliminated.

Shareholder should submit duly filled in Re-materialization Request Form (RRF) to the concerned DP. He intimates the relevant Depository of the request through the system. Can one get his original share Certificate? No, as the share certificates on De-materialization are cancelled you will not receive the same share certificate on Re-materialization. The shares represented by De-materialized share certificates are fungible and, therefore, certificate numbers and distinctive numbers become irrelevant.

The dividend warrants in respect of all shares, whether held in electronic form or by way of share certificates, are sent by the company directly to the shareholders whose names are on the company’s register of members or in the electronic form under the depository system on the designated date to be notified by the Company. While opening Accounts with Depository Participants (Dps), shareholders are required to give details of their bank Accounts, which will be used by the Company for direct credit of the dividend to the respective accounts.

As per the Depository Regulations, the Company is obliged to pay dividend on dematerialized shares as per the details furnished by the concerned DP. The Company cannot make any change in such records received from the Depository. How are transactions effected through the Depository? After you open an account with a DP, you can buy or sell shares in the electronic form without share certificate or transfer forms, provided the seller/buyer also holds shares in the electronic form. You can sell the shares in the depository mode through any share broker. All you need to do is to provide him the details of your account with the DP, with a delivery instruction to debit your share account with the number of shares sold by you. When you buy shares in the depository mode, you must, similarly, inform the broker about your depository account details so that the shares bought would be credited to your account with the DP.
