Machhapuchchhre Capital is an authorized Depository Participant (DP) Licensed by SEBON.

Demat Account is a type of account which electronically holds shares/securities of an individual/institution instead of physical certificate.

Having a Demat Account helps you avoid several risks and hassles, and hence comes with the following benefits of:

  • Eliminating the risk of forgery, theft and the manipulation of share certificates;
  • Easy transfer of securities;
  • Direct credit of IPO, FPO, right shares, bonus shares to Demat Account.
  • Easy pledge for securities in Demat Accounts.
  • Easy for the family as well as death name transfers.

To open a new Demat Account, you will have to visit a licensed DP.

It's an easy pie! For a Demat Account, you need to submit a completed Demat Account opening form at DP with relevant documents (copy of your citizenship certificate, photograph, and a copy of your birth certificate copy if you are a minor). You need to make your physical presence for the process though.

According to the regulation of SEBON, you as an individual can have a maximum of two Demat Accounts.

DP ID is the code number for every licensed DP and Client ID is the auto-created account number from the CDSC System. BOID is the combination of DP ID and Client ID.

A confirmation letter and acknowledgment letter mean the same for a Demat Account holder. The letter is an auto-generated copy containing information on Demat Account number and holder’s details when your details are fully entered into the CDSC System.

Dematerialization is a process of converting physical securities into electronic form.

After opening a Demat Account, you should visit your DP and fill-up a Dematerialization Request Form (DRF) and submit your physical certificates to the DP for further process. Then, your DP creates DRN against the shares & filled DRF. After you are done with your part, you DP takes the process forward. Your DP processes the document to respective RTS for signature verification and completion of the Demat process. If the signatures are verified, the documents (along with share certificates) are accepted by RTS, the share certificates will be deposited in the respective Demat Account within a few days.

RTS or Registrar to Share is a company appointed by the listed company (which has issued shares to the public) for maintenance of their shareholders’ details and facilitation of the shareholders’ transactions.

DRN or Demat Requisition Number is a request-copy for credit and it is issued by DP.

After receiving DRN along with physical certificates, it is handed over to respective RTS.

If the signatures fail to get verified, the shares will not be deposited in the Demat Account. In such case, the Demat Account holder should visit the RTS for the required verification process.

You should immediately contact your DP for follow-up and inquire about the delay.

The following reasons may cause rejection of DRF:

  • If your signature as a Demat Account holder does not match with the record maintained at DP & RTS,
  • If you as a shareholder of a company have more than one holder name for the same company, has more than one holder number of the same company.
  • If you have filled the form with wrong information of your three consecutive generation lineage (father’s name, grandfather’s name.)
  • If the information contained in issued DRN is wrong.
