Investor Information Important points
Hold securities in dematerialised form
Investors should hold their securities in dematerialised form as the same is beneficial due to following:-
• A safe and convenient way to hold securities;
• Elimination of risks associated with physical certificates such as bad delivery, fake securities, delays, thefts, etc.
• Immediate transfer of securities;
• No stamp duty on electronic transfer of securities;
• Reduction in transaction cost;
• Reduction in paperwork involved in transfer of securities;
• No odd lot problem, even one share can be traded;
• Availability of nomination facility;
• Ease in effecting change of address as change with Depository Participants gets registered with all companies in which investor holds securities electronically;
• Easier transmission of securities as the same done by Depository Participants for all securities in demat account;
• Automatic credit into demat account of shares, arising out of bonus/split/consolidation/merger etc.
Hold securities in consolidated form
Investors holding shares in multiple folios are requested to consolidate their holdings in single folio. Holding of securities in one folio enables shareholders to monitor the same with ease.
Furnish bank details and get dividend directly credited in bank account
Investors should avail the Electronic Clearing Services for payment of dividend as the same reduces risk attached to physical dividend warrants. Some of the advantages of payment through electronic credit services are as under:
• Avoidance of frequent visits to banks for depositing the physical instruments.
• Prompt credit to the bank account of the investor through electronic clearing.
• Fraudulent encashment of warrants is avoided.
• Exposure to delays / loss in postal service avoided.
• As there can be no loss in transit of warrants, issue of duplicate warrants is avoided.
Printing of bank account numbers, names and addresses of bank branches on dividend warrants provide protection against fraudulent encashment of dividend warrants. Members are requested to provide, the same to the Company's RTA for incorporation on their dividend warrants.
Register for SMS alert facility
Investor should register with Depository Participants for the SMS alert facility. Both National Securities Depository Limited and Central Depository Services (India) Limited alert investors through SMS of the debits and credits in their demat account.
Submit nomination form and avoid transmission hassle
Nomination helps nominees to get the shares transmitted in their favour without any hassles. Investors should get the nomination registered with the Company in case of physical holding and with their Depository Participants in case of shares are held in dematerialised form.
Form may be downloaded from the Company's website, www. reliancecapital.co.in under the section "Investor Relations". However, if shares are held in dematerialised form, nomination has to be registered with the concerned Depository Participants directly, as per the form prescribed by the Depository Participants.
Deal only with SEBI registered intermediaries
Investors should deal with SEBI registered intermediary so that in case of deficiency of services, investor may take up the matter with SEBI.
Corporate benefits in electronic form
Investor holding shares in physical form should opt for corporate benefits like split/ bonus etc. in electronic form by providing their demat account details to Company's RTA.
Register e-mail address
Investors should register their e-mail address with the Company/ Depository Participants. This will help them in receiving all communication from the Company electronically at their e-mail address. This also avoids delay in receiving communications from the Company. Prescribed form for registration may please be downloaded from the Company's website.
Course of action in case of non-receipt of dividend, revalidation of dividend warrant etc.
Shareholders may write to the Company's RTA, furnishing the particulars of the dividend not received, and quoting the folio number/DP ID and Client ID particulars (in case of dematerialised shares). On expiry of the validity period, if the dividend warrant still appears as unpaid in records, duplicate warrant will be issued. The Company's RTA would request the concerned shareholder to execute an indemnity before issuing the duplicate warrant. However, duplicate warrants will not be issued against those shares wherein a 'stop transfer indicator' has been instituted either by virtue of a complaint or by law, unless the procedure for releasing the same has been completed. Shareholders are requested to note that they have to wait till the expiry of the validity of the original warrant before a duplicate warrant is issued to them, since the dividend warrants are payable at par at several centres across the country and the banks do not accept 'stop payment' instructions on the said warrants.
Facility for a Basic Services Demat Account (BSDA)
SEBI has stated that all the depository participants shall make available a BSDA for the shareholders who have only one demat account with (a) No Annual Maintenance Charges (AMC) if the value of holding is up to Rs. 50,000 and (b) AMC not exceeding Rs. 100 for value of holding from Rs. 50,001 to Rs. 2,00,000. (Refer Circular CIR/MRD/DP/22/201 2 dated August 27, 2012).
