MANDATORY DEMATERIALISTAION

Pursuant to Securities and Exchange Board of India (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) (Fourth Amendment) Regulations, 2018, SEBI has mandated that, with effect from 5th December 2018, shareholders holding share in physical mode shall not be able to transfer their shares unless such shares are converted into dematerialised form. Accordingly, the shareholders holding shares in physical form, in their own interest, are hereby requested to take necessary steps to dematerialise their shares as soon as possible. The amendment does not impact the shareholders requests for transmission or transposition of securities held in physical mode.

In order to get the physical share certificate dematerialized, the shareholders may follow the steps mentioned below:

  1. Shareholder to open a demat account with a Depositary participant (DP).  
  2. Shareholder fill in a Demat Request Form (DRF) and submit the same with the physical  Certificate/s to the DP for dematerialization.
  3. Every Company’s securities has a unique International Securities Identification Number (ISIN). For each ISIN, a separate DRF has to be used.  
  4. A separate DRF should be filled up for free securities and lock-in securities.   
  5. DP to verify that the DRF has been filled correctly.   
  6. DP to Setup a demat request on the system.  
  7. DP to deface and mutilate the physical certificates and Send the certificates alongwith the DRF to the Issuer/Registrar and transfer Agent (RTA).  
  8. Issuer/RTA verifies genuineness of the certificates and confirms the demat request.  
  9. On receiving confirmation from Issuer/RTA, the Shareholder’s account will be credited with the number of securities dematerialized.

The shareholders may approach the nearest Depositary Participant or browse through the website of National Securities Depository Limited (www.nsdl.co.in) and Central Depository Services Limited (www.cdslindia.com ) for further clarification in this regard.

Shareholders are requested to contact the Company’s Registrar & Share Transfer Agents, M/s. Niche Technologies Private Limited for any queries in regard to the aforesaid or contact at the registered office of the Company.

REMITTANCE OF DIVIDEND-NECS FACILITY

Reserve Bank of India and SEBI through its notification has made it mandatory for the companies to pay dividend to the shareholders through National Electronic Clearing System (NECS). Accordingly, remittance of dividend through ECS is replaced by “National Electronic Clearing Service” (NECS).

The advantages of NECS over ECS include faster credit of remittance to beneficiary’s account, wider coverage with no limitations of location in India besides ease of operations for remitting agencies NECS essentially operates on the new and unique bank account number, allotted by banks post implementation of Core Banking Solutions (CBS) for centralized processing of inward instructions and efficiency in handling bulk transactions.

Accordingly, the members are requested to provide their new account number allotted to them by their respective banks after implementation of CBS to the Company or its RTA in respect of shares held in physical form and to the Depository Participants in respect of shares held in electronic form.

(B) Particulars of the bank account:

  • Name of bank
  • Name of branch
