0 Immediate transfer of securities

0 Reduction in transaction cost;
0 Reduction in paperwork involved in transfer of securities 0 No odd lot problem, even one share can be traded; 0 Availability of nomination facility;
0 Ease in effecting change of address as change with Depository Participants gets registered with all companies in which investor holds securities electronically;

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. Members 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.
