To enable remittance of dividend through NECS, Members are requested to provide their new account number allotted to them by their respective banks after implementation of CBS. The account number must be provided to the Company in respect of shares held in physical form and to the Depository Participants in respect of shares held in electronic form.

Shareholders holding shares in physical form are requested to provide details of their bank account for availing NECS facility in the form attached to the Notice of the Annual General Meeting.
