  • Karvy will verify the certificates and DRF, and if found in order, confirm the dematerialisation to NSDL/CDSL. NSDL/CDSL will in turn confirm the dematerialisation to the DP.
  • On receiving the confirmation, DP will credit investor's account with the number of shares so dematerialised and thereafter the investor will be holding the shares in the electronic form.
  • Normally the investor’s account will be credited within 15 days from the date of receipt of both Electronic Request and physical certificates along with DRF.
  • DP will give periodic statements of holdings and will update client's account after each transaction.

All valid share transfer requests will be processed by the RTA and a letter informing the shareholder of the same will be sent within two weeks. This is called a demat option letter upon receipt of which, the shareholder has to exercise an option within 30 days to receive the share certificates in physical form or request an electronic credit of the shares. In cases where the shareholder informs the RTA to forward share certificates the RTA would do so. In cases where the shareholder wishes to have electronic credit of shares, the shareholder will approach his Depository participant and forward the letter back to RTA with the Depository Participant's seal. The RTA will return the share certificates to the shareholder if he does not hear from the shareholder within 30 days of the option letter.
