Transfer of Physical Shares
Pursuant to Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) Circular No. SEBI/LAD-NRO/GN/2018/24 dated June 8, 2018 except in case of transmission or transposition of securities, requests for effecting transfer of securities shall not be processed unless the securities are held in the dematerialized form with a Depository with effect from December 5, 2018.
It is therefore requested to take immediate action to dematerialize the shares in case they are held in physical mode.
Shareholders holding shares in Physical mode may note the following steps for dematerialization of their Physical Shares:
- Open a Demat Account in same order of name(s) as appearing in the Physical Share Certificate(s) with any of the Depository Participant (DP) registered with National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) or Central Depository Services (India) Limited (CDSL).
- Upon submission of Demat Request Form (DRF) duly signed along with the original Share Certificate(s), please make sure to write on each share certificate 'Surrendered for Dematerialization’.
- DP will generate Demat Request Number (DRN) electronically and such requests for dematerialization of shares should be sent directly by the concerned DP to the Registrar and Share Transfer Agent (RTA) of the Company, M/s. R & D Infotech Private Limited at 7A, Beltala Road, 1st Floor, Kolkata - 700026.
- Once the request is approved, the share certificates in the Physical mode will be destroyed and a confirmation of dematerialization will be sent to the concerned Depository (i.e., NSDL / CDSL) by Company’s RTA.
- The concerned Depository in turn will confirm the dematerialization of shares to the DP.
- Upon completion of demat process, a credit in the holding of shares will reflect in the Shareholder's Demat Account electronically. Thereafter, DP will intimate the shareholder directly.
- After receipt of confirmation from DP, the Shareholders should check their Demat Account Statement and verify the credit balance of Equity Shares of Bata India Limited and International Securities Identification Number (ISIN), i.e., INE176A01028.
- The process of dematerialization generally takes about 15 to 20 days after the submission of Dematerialization Request with DP.
