The equity shares of the company are under compulsory demat trading by all investors. Shares are available for demat with both the depositories in India — National Securities Depository Ltd (NSDL) and Central Depository Services (India) Ltd (CDSL). Considering the advantages of scripless trading, shareholders holding shares in physical form should consider dematerialisation of their holding. For this purpose, Shareholders will have to open a demat account with a depository participant (DP) registered with either NSDL or CDSL, and then surrender their share certificate(s) for dematerialisation to the company through the DP.Steps involved in the dematerialisation of shares
At present, no stamp duty has to be paid on transfer of shares in demat form. Shareholders can also opt for transfer and demat facility.
Over 97 percent of outstanding equity in dematerialised form as on 31st March,2012.
