Procedure of Dematerialisation (DEMAT)
  • You need to first open a Demat A/c with any DP (Depository Participant) of your choice. This is like a bank a/c - in bank you keep money and in a demat a/c you keep shares.
    The list of DPs is available on the websites of depositories: CDSL (Central Depository Services(India) Ltd and NSDL (National Securities Depository Ltd)
  • Obtain your Demat A/c No. from your DP. This is also called beneficial owner identification number (BO ID). All your purchases/ investments in shares will be credited to this account. If you sell your securities, your demat account will be debited.
  • Obtain a Demat Request Form (DRF) from your DP and surrender your physical share certificates to your DP along with this DRF.
  • Your DP will then forward your share certificates to the Company or its RTA (Registrar and Share Transfer Agent).
  • Your DP will credit the holding of your shares into your demat account, electronically. Dematerialization will normally take about 3 weeks.
