Who is a DP? And what does he do?

DP is the connection between yourself and the Company through the Depositories viz. National Securities Depository Ltd. (NSDL) and Central Depository Services (India) Ltd. (CDSL). They maintain your account, make entries in your account when you transact, take your physical share certificates and do the dematting on your behalf.

Can we have the list of DPs? What is the service charge levied?

The list of DPs located at various cities with their address, telephone, fax and with a comparative table of charges is available with NSDL and CDSL. Their Website address is www.nsdl.co.in  and www.cdslindia.com

What are the benefits of opening a Depository Account / Depository System ?

The benefits of holding shares in electronic form with a DP are:
• Elimination of postal delays.
• Elimination of bad deliveries.
• Elimination of loss of certificates in transit.
• Elimination of fake, forged, counterfeit transfers.
• No stamp duty on transfer.
• Reduction in transaction costs like brokerage, postage etc
• Immediate ownership of securities on settlement.
 • Minimized paper work.

How much time it takes to dematerialise my shares?

It takes 10-15 days to process your request after receipt of the physical documents as well the electronic entry from the DP.

What should I do to get my dividends through ECS in physical holding?

After signing the same, please register it by forwarding it to our Registrar and Transfer Agents, Karvy Fintech Private Limited (Karvy).  For the shares held in dematerialized mode, you need to contact your Depository Participant for registration of ECS mandate.

In case of adding my family members’ names, does that construe to be a transfer?
