What is dematerialization?

The dematerialization system is an alternative to the physical existence of securities, where securities are converted in the electronic form and deposited in a depository account in the investor’s name

What is the need for dematerialization?

The need for an alternative to physical securities arose because dealing in paper entailed risks such as loss in transit, delays in deliveries, theft, forgeries and mutilation of certificates. Also transfer of ownership took very long and there was settlement risk besides the paper work involved. Conversion of securities in the electronic form eliminates these problems

How does an individual investor participate in this system?

To dematerialize your shares, you need to open a demat account with a depository through a depository participant (DP). The DP will then undertake to dematerialize your shares by sending them to the concerned company and to hold them in your demat account

What is a Depository?

A depository is an organization where the securities of shareholders are held in the electronic form at their request, through the medium of a depository participant (DP). A depository system can be compared to a banking system. If an investor wants to avail of the services offered by a depository, the investor has to open an account with the depository through a DP. This is very similar to opening an account with any branch of a bank in order to avail of its services. We offer our services through CDSL.

Is a depository just another form of a custodial service, the only difference being that securities are held in the electronic form? Are there additional benefits in the depository system?

What role do the CDSL play as the apex bodies?

CDSL carry out and monitor the depository functions through a network of DPs who in turn will be actually interacting with the investors. However, as required by the Depository Ordinance, the CDSL would be responsible to all investors holding accounts with the DPs. It will essentially operate on a two tier structure where CDSL maintain accounts of their DPs, who in turn maintain their clients' accounts The DPs operate on online software provided by the CDSL, and there is online connectivity between their operating system and the DP's system. The depositories also maintain online connectivity with Registrars / Transfer Agents of the securities and perform a daily reconciliation of all the account balances in order to ensure that the number of securities issued and dematerialized in the depository is correct

CDSL essentially perform the following functions through their various participants

  • Enable surrender and withdrawal of securities to and from the depository
  • Maintain investor holdings in the electronic form
  • Effect settlement of securities traded on the Exchanges
