Benefits of holding shares in dematerialized form

Dematerialization (‘Demat’ in short form) signifies conversion of  a share certificate from its present physical form to electronic form for the same number of holding.

It offers scope for paperless trading through state-of-the-art technology, whereby share transactions and transfers are processed electronically without involving any share certificate or transfer deed after the share certificates have been converted from physical form to electronic form.


Demat attempts to avoid the time consuming and complex process of getting shares transferred in the name of  buyers as well as its inherent problems of bad deliveries, delay in processing/fraudulent interception in postal transit, etc.,

Dematerialization of shares is optional and an investor can still hold shares in physical form.  However, he/she has to demat the shares if he/she wishes to sell the same through the Stock Exchanges.  Similarly, if an investor purchases shares, he/she will get delivery of the shares in demat form only.

The depository Act, 1996 has been enacted to regulate the matters related and incidental to the operation of Depositories and demat operations.  Two Depositories are in operation – National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) and Central Depository Services Limited (CDSL).  

How to get physical shares dematerialized

First, shareholder has to open an account with a Depository Participant (DP) and get a unique Client ID number. Thereafter, he/she will have to fill up a Dematerialization Request Form (DRF) provided by the DP and surrender the physical shares, which are to be dematted, to the DP.

The DP upon receipt of the shares and the DRF will send an electronic request to the company’s registrar and share transfer agent through the Depository for confirmation of demat.  Each request will bear a unique transaction number.

The DP will simultaneously surrender the DRF and the shares to the company’s registrar and share transfer agent with a covering letter requesting the registrar and share transfer agent of the company to confirm demat.  The company’s registrar and share transfer agent after necessary verification of the documents received from the DP will confirm demat to the Depository.

This confirmation will be passed on from the Depository to the DP, which holds his/her account.  After receiving this confirmation from the Depository, the DP will credit the account with the shares so dematerialized. 

The DP will hold the shares in the dematerialized form thereafter on his/her behalf.  And he/she will become beneficial owner of these dematerialized shares.
