If the shares are dematted, what is the procedure for change of address?

Since your Depository Participant maintains your record of dematted shares, you have to inform them about any change in your address. Your Depository Participant will then pass on this information when any action like despatch of Annual Accounts or payment of dividend etc., is due to be taken by the company.

 
 
  Dividend

I have not received my dividend. What action do I take?

You may please write to us quoting the name of the company furnishing the particulars of the dividend not received and also quoting your folio number/client ID particulars (in case of dematted shares).We will verify the records and provide you with the status.


What is the procedure for obtaining a duplicate dividend warrant?

If the dividend warrant is still shown as unpaid in the Bank Statement, we shall issue a duplicate warrant to you expeditiously, on providing an indemnity bond.


Can I claim the old dividends relating to past years which have not been received by me?

As per the present law, the dividends issued prior to the year 1995, if found unpaid / unclaimed,such amounts are required to be transferred to the Central Government. Unpaid/unclaimed dividends issued subsequent to the year 1995 and if such dividends are more than 7 years old, such dividends cannot be claimed.If you have not received any of these dividends, you may please write to us with relevant particulars like folio number, concerned dividend, etc., and the we shall clarify the status and arrange to pay the dividend if it remains unpaid as per the records.


Whom should we approach if the outstanding dividend pertains to a period before October 1995?

However, please note that the unpaid / unclaimed dividend amounts transferred to the Investor Education and Protection fund established under the Companies Act,1956 in the year 2002 and as per the applicable law no refund can be claimed by the shareholders or such dividends.


In order to protect against fraudulent encashment, I want to incorporate the details of
my bank account in my dividend warrant. What is the procedure that I should follow?


Currently the bank account particulars are being overprinted on the dividend warrants wherever Available and in the absense of the same,complete address is printed to avoid possible fraudulent encashment.In case you have not provided your bank account details in the past or wish to change,please forward a communication as stated below.

a) If you are holding shares in physical form, please quote the name of the company and give your folio number, details of name , of your bank and account number to us and we shall incorporate the same in all your future dividend warrants

Under this system, you can receive your dividend electronically by way of direct credit to your bank account. This avoids a lot of hassles like loss/fraudulent interception of dividend warrants during postal transit. This also expedites payment through credit to your account compared to dividend warrants in physical form. We strongly recommend that if you have not already opted for Electronic Clearing Service, you may please do so.

  Nomination with respect to shareholding

How do I make a nomination with regard to my shareholding?

You have to submit a nomination form duly filled in duplicate and signed. If you are holding shares along with other holders then all the holders will have to sign the nomination form.

After the form is received by the company, and if found in order, a registration number will be allotted to the nomination. A duplicate copy of the nomination form received from you will then be returned back to you with an endorsement indicating the registration number and date.

Nomination can be made only in respect of shares held in physical form. In case of dematted shares, your nomination has to be recorded with your Depository Participant.

Only one nomination can be made for each folio. Folios having different order or combination of names of shareholders will require separate nominations.



Do I have to send my share certificates along with the nomination form?

No
.


My shares are held in joint names. Are the joint holder/s nominees to the shares?

Joint holders are not nominees. They are joint holders of the relevant shares having joint rights on the same. In the unfortunate event of death of any one of the joint holders, the surviving joint holder/s of the shares is/are the only person/persons recognised by the company as the holders of the shares.


Can a nomination once made be changed?

Nomination once made can be revoked by a shareholder by giving a fresh nomination. If the nomination is made by joint holders, and one of the joint-holders dies, the remaining joint holder/s can make a fresh nomination by revoking existing nomination.


What is the legal position of the nominee in case of death of the shareholders?

Upon the death of a shareholder, the Nominee, to the exclusion of any other legal heir/beneficiary, is the only person in whom the shares vest. In other words, in case of a valid nomination, the company will not entertain any claim from legal heirs or beneficiaries and the shares will be transmitted only in favour of the Nominee.

In case if the nomination is made by joint-holders, the nomination will come into play only upon the death of all the joint holders. Therefore if one of the joint shareholders dies, the shares will devolve on the surviving shareholders to the exclusion of the Nominee. In this case the surviving shareholders may make a fresh nomination if they so desire.


What is the procedure for the nominee to get the shares in his name?

Upon death of a shareholder, the nominee is entitled to have the shares transmitted in his favour. He/She will have to give a notice in writing to this effect along with the share certificate(s) of the deceased shareholders. Alternatively, the nominee can transfer the shares held by the deceased shareholder, to a third party.

If a nominee opts for registration of shares in his name, he is required to produce proof of identity, e.g., copy of passport, driving license, voter's identity card or such other proof to the satisfaction of the company. The nominee should also submit his specimen signature duly attested along with a request for transfer.

Upon scrutiny of the documents submitted by the nominee, shares will be transmitted in his favour and share certificates returned to him duly endorsed.


Can the nominee sell the shares without registration in his favour? What is the procedure?

Yes, a nominee can sell the shares to a third party, without registration of shares in his favour. However, the usual procedure for transfer of shares will have to be followed.


I have shares in the demat form. Can I send the nomination form to the Company/Registrars for making a nomination with respect to my shareholding?

For making a nomination with respect to dematted shares, you will have to approach your DP. In the account opening form provided by the Depository Participants there is a provision for providing the name of the nominee. Please consult your Depository Participant for further details.

I have purchased physical shares. How do I get them registered? How long will it take?

I want to add another joint-holder name to my shareholding. What is the procedure that I should follow?

You have to execute a transfer deed, duly stamped and submit the same to us for transfer. Please note that such addition of name amounts to change in ownership of shares and the procedure for transfer has to be followed.


I have purchased physical shares long back but I forgot to get them transferred in my favour. What is the procedure that I should follow now?

A transfer deed is valid for a period of one year from the presentation date indicated in the stamp affixed by the Registrar of Companies on the upper portion of the deed or the closure date of Register of Members immediately after the presentation date, whichever is later. Please check whether your transfer deed is still valid. If so, submit the transfer deed duly executed and stamped along with share certificates to us for transfer in your favour.

If the validity period of the transfer deed has expired you will have to approach the Registrar of Companies for extending the validity of the transfer deed. Alternatively, you may approach the registered holder/seller whose signatures are appearing on the transfer deed as seller to execute fresh transfer deeds. Thereafter you may submit the fresh/revalidated transfer deed to us for transfer. Revalidation of transfer deed(s) is not applicable in case of entities which are not under the purview of Registrar of companies.


 
  Transmission of shares

In case of joint holdings, in the event of death of one shareholder, how do the surviving shareholders get the shares in their names?

The surviving shareholders will have to submit a request letter supported by an attested copy of the Death Certificate of the deceased shareholder and the relevant share 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 necessary endorsement.



If a shareholder who held shares in his sole name dies without leaving a will, how can his legal heir/s (either husband/wife/son/daughter, etc.) get the shares transmitted in their names?

The legal heirs should obtain a Succession Certificate or Letter of Administration with respect to the shares and a true copy of the same, duly attested by the Court Officer, or Notary should be sent to the company along with a request letter, transmission form, and all the share certificates in original, for transmission in their favour.


If the deceased family member who held shares in his/her own name (single) had left a will, how do the legal heir/s get the shares transmitted in their names?

The legal heirs will have to get the will probated by the High Court/District Court of competent jurisdiction and then send a copy of the probated copy of the will, along with relevant schedule/annexure setting out the details of the shares, the relevant share certificates in original and transmission form for transmission.


A and B had shares in a Company. Both of them died. How do I get the shares transmitted in my name?

You should obtain a Succession Certificate/Letter of Administration of the last deceased joint holder in your favour and follow the procedure for transmission of shares.


I have already produced the attested/registered will. Since getting it probated would take a long time and money can I avoid that procedure?

You will appreciate that in order to ascertain that the 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.


The name of a joint holder was included only for convenience by the first holder. I am the only heir. Could you transfer the shares in my name as per the will/probate?

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.
