Working in an organization as a trainee provides a medium to

look into and experience the practices and procedures of the
corporate sector. The Stock Holding Corporation of India Ltd. gave
me a lot of exposure of the capital market. During my training
period I received unconditional help my every member of the
Stock Holding Corporation.

Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude to Prof. Shyam

Chandra (Dean, Faculty of Commerce, BHU) and to Prof B. Jha for
their efforts to place me at SHCIL, Varanasi.

In a professional course like MFC the significance of practical

knowledge through summer training is imperative as one gets an
opportunity to learn about a wide range of corporate activities.

Depositories in India till now have made way for the elimination of
market risk associated with physical holding in the settlement of
securities by providing a highly efficient clearing and settlement
system. Having pioneered dematerialization Stock Holding
Corporation of India ltd. is the first Depository Participant (DP)
which is registered with the National Securities Depositories Ltd.

It has been my best and sincere effort to collect information from

various sources to make this project effective. Due to shortage of
time I am unable to give a detailed report but I have tried my
level best to do justice.

In today’s competitive environment of depository services an

attempt is made to understand the trading and settlement of
securities through this project work. Any errors and omissions
that might have crept in are totally unintentional. I shall always
be grateful to all who post their valuable comments on this report.

Dematerialization is a recently introduced process by which share

certificates are converted into electronic form. If you own shares
of a company then you must have the possession of the share
certificates. Dematerialization means surrendering the physical
form of shares to a depository and receiving the shares

A depository is like the central bank of the country and depository

participants (DPs) are like the banks with which you can open an
account so as to enable the depository to credit your account with
these shares.

According to the securities and exchange board of India (SEBI)

guidelines- banks, custodians and stock-brokers can become DPs.

An investor submits his shares to the DP who will in turn send the
shares to the company for dematerialization. This is a process by
which the company cancels the physical shares and credits your
account with an equal number of shares. If you are holding shares
for many years it is quite likely that the company may ask for a
reconfirmation of your signature as there may be some
differences in the signatures in their records and your current

Once the account is opened and shares are dematerialized buying

and selling of these shares is done through this account. The DP
gives each investor or ‘account holder’ a passbook (just like a
bank passbook) or a statement of holdings which is regularly
updated. When shares are converted into the electronic form they
will be credited to your account and if they are sold they will be
debited. At the end of every fortnight you will receive a statement
of account showing the number of shares debited and credited
into your account.
When trading is done through the electronic mode investors have
to pay fees similar to the brokerage. However the charges are
lower than the brokerage as the physical counting of shares is
While it is yet not compulsory that all the shares listed on the
stock exchanges are dematerialized the NSDL regularly
announces the companies whose shares have to be compulsorily
dematerialized. But there is a steady increase in the number of
companies trading in the dematerialized shares.

Overall, it is said that the benefits of having a dematerialized or

book-entry holding through an account are:
Modernism-electronic transactions take full account of modern IT
Velocity of transactions-the transfer of securities by mere
accounting entries allows for a rapid and efficient disposition of
Security-risk associated with physical securities such as delay or
loss in transit, theft and mutilation are eliminated.
The concept of an ‘odd lot’ in respect of dematerialized securities
stands abolished as any amount can be a market lot. Sometimes
dematerialized securities attract lower margin and lower interest
rates compared to physical securities.


According to the depositories act, 1996, an investor has the

option to hold securities either in physical or electronic form.
However, SEBI has notified that settlement of trades in listed
securities should take place only in the DEMAT mode. Although,
trades up to 500 shares can be settled in physical form, physical
settlement is virtually not taking place for the apprehension of
bad delivery on account of mismatch of signatures, forgery of
signatures, fake certificates, etc.


• Open a DEMAT account with DP.

• Fill the DEMAT requisition form (DRF) and submit the same
with the physical certificate/s to the DP for dematerialization.
• DP defaces and sends the certificates to the issuer/registrar
who credits an equivalent number of securities in the DEMAT
account maintained by CDSL.
• For each ISIN, a separate DRF has to be used.


Re-materialization is the process by which a client can get his

electronic holdings converted into physical certificates. The client
has to submit the re-materialization request to the DP with whom
he has an account. The DP enters the request in its system which
blocks the client’s holdings to that extent automatically. The DP
releases the request to NSDL and sends the request form to the
issuer/R&T agent.
Thereafter, the client’s blocked balances are debited.


• A client can rematerialize his dematerialized holdings at any

point of time.
• The re-materialization process is completed within 30 days.
• The securities sent for re-materialization cannot be traded.


• The client will submit a request to the DP for re-

materialization of holdings in its account.
• On receipt of the request form the DP will verify that the
form is duly filled in and issue to the client, an
acknowledgement slip, signed and stamped.
• The DP will verify the signature of the client as on the form
with the specimen available in its records.
• If the signatures are different the DP will ensure the identity
of the client.
• If the form is in order the DP will enter the request details in
its DPM (software provided by NSDL to the DP). While
entering the details if it is found that the client’s account
does not have enough balance, the DP will not entertain the
• The DP will intimate the client that the request cannot be
entertained since the client does not have sufficient balance.
• If there is sufficient balance in the client’s account the DP
will enter the request in the DPM and the DPM will generate
a re-materialization request number (RRN).
• The RRN so generated is entered in the space provided for
the purpose in the re-materialization request form.
• Details recorded in the RRN should be verified by a person
other than the person who entered the data. The request is
then released to the DM by the DP.
• The DM forwards the request to the issuer/R&T agent
• The DP will fill the authorization portion of the request form.
• The DP will then dispatch the request form to the issuer/R&T
• While processing the request, the issuer /R&T agent may
report some objections. Depending on the nature of
objection, the issuer/R&T agent may reject the request or
process it partially, seeking rectification for the remaining
and send an objection memo to the DP.
• The issuer/R&T agent accepts the request for re-
materialization prints and dispatches the certificates to the
client and sends electronic confirmation to the DM.
• The DP must inform the client about the changes in the
client account following the acceptance of the request.


• The client has to mention the lot type in the re-

materialization request form.
• Securities sent for re-materialization cannot be traded.
Before initiating a re-materialization request in a security,
the client must ensure that he has sufficient free balances in
that security in his depository account.


A depository is a facility for holding securities which enables

securities transactions to be processed by book entry. To achieve
this purpose the depository may immobilize the securities or de-
materialize them (so that they exist only as electronic records).
India has chosen the dematerialization route. In India, a
depository is an organization which holds the beneficial owners’
securities in electronic form through a registered depository
participant (DP). A depository functions somewhat similar to a
commercial bank. To avail of the services offered by a depository
the investor has to open an account with a registered DP.

• Elimination of bad deliveries and all risks associated with

physical certificates such as loss, theft, mutilation, etc.
• No stamp duty.
• Immediate transfer and registration of securities.
• Faster settlement cycle.
• No risk of buying fraudulent certificates.
• No courier/postal charges.
• Reduced record keeping.
• One investor account for all shares.


In India, a depository participant (DP) is described as an agent of

the depository. They are the intermediaries between the
depository and the investors. The relationship between the DPs
and the depository is governed by an agreement made between
the two under the depositories act. In a strictly legal sense, a DP
is an entity who is registered as such with SEBI under the
provisions of the SEBI act.
As per the provisions of this act, a DP can offer depository-related
services only after obtaining a certificate of registration from

SEBI (D&P) regulations, 1996 prescribe a minimum net worth of

Rs. 50 lakhs for stockbrokers, R&T agents and non-banking
finance companies (NBFC), for granting them a certificate of
registration to act as DPs. If a stockbroker seeks to act as a DP in
more than one depository he should comply with the net worth
criterion separately for each such depository. No minimum net
worth criterion has been prescribed for other categories of DPs.
NSDL requires a minimum net worth of Rs. 100 lakhs to be eligible
to become a DP as against Rs. 50 lakh prescribed by SEBI (D&P)


First an investor has to approach a DP and fill up an account

opening form. The account opening form must be supported by
copies of any one of the approved documents to serve as proof of
identity (POI) and proof of address (POA) as specified by SEBI.
Besides, production of PAN card in original at the time of opening
of account has been made mandatory effective from April 01,

All applicants should carry original documents for verification by

an authorized official of the depository participant, under his

Further the investor has to sign an agreement with DP in a

depository prescribed standard format which details the rights
and duties of the investor and the DP. The DP should provide the
investor with a copy of the agreement and the schedule of
charges for their future reference. The DP will open the account in
the system and give an account number, which is also called BO
ID (beneficiary owner identification number).

The DP may revise the charges by giving 30 days notice in

advance. SEBI has rationalized the cost structure for
dematerialization by removing account opening charges,
transaction charges for credit of securities, and custody charges
vide circular dated January 28, 2005.

Further, SEBI has vide circular dated November 09, 2005 advised
that with effect from January 09, 2006 that no charges shall be
levied by a depository on a DP and consequently by the DP on a
beneficiary owner (BO) when a BO transfers all the securities lying
in his account to another branch of the same DP or to another DP
of the same Depository or another depository provided the BO
account/s at transferee DP and at transferor DP are one and the
same, i.e. identical in all respects. In case the BO account at the
transferor DP is a joint account, the BO account at transferee DP
should also be a joint account in the same sequence of ownership.

Currently there are two depositories operational in the country:

(1)National Securities Depository Limited.
(2) Central Depository Services Limited.

Although India had a vibrant capital market which is more than a

century old, the paper based settlement of trades caused
substantial problems like bad delivery and delayed transfer of
title till recently. The enactment of depositories act in august
1996 paved the way for establishment of NSDL, the first
depository in India. This depository promoted by institutions of
national stature responsible for economic development of the
country has since established a national infrastructure of
international standards that handles most of the securities held
and settled in dematerialized form in the Indian capital market.

Using innovative and flexible technology systems, NSDL works to

support the investors and brokers in the capital market of the
country. NSDL aims at ensuring the safety and soundness of
Indian marketplaces by developing settlement solutions that
increase efficiency, minimize risk and reduce costs. At NSDL we
play a quiet but central role in developing products and services
that will continue to nurture the growing needs of the financial
services industry.

In the depository system securities are held in depository

accounts which are more or less similar to holding funds in bank
accounts. Transfer of ownership of securities is done through
simple account transfers. This method does away with all the risks
and hassles normally associated with paperwork. Consequently
the cost of transacting in a depository environment is
considerably lower as compared to transacting in certificates.

A depository facilitates holding of securities in the electronic form

and enables securities transactions to be processed by book entry
by a depository participant (DP) who as an agent of the
depository offers depository services to investors. According to
SEBI guidelines financial institutions, banks, custodians,
stockbrokers, etc. are eligible to act as DPs. The investor who is
known as beneficial owner (BO) has to open a DEMAT account
through any DP for dematerialization of his holdings and
transferring securities.

The balances in the investors account recorded and maintained

with CDSL can be obtained through the DP. The DP is required to
provide the investor, at regular intervals, a statement of account
which gives the details of the securities holdings and transactions.
The depository system has effectively eliminated paper-based
certificates which were prone to be fake, forged, counterfeit
resulting in bad deliveries. CDSL offers an efficient and
instantaneous transfer of securities.

CDSL was promoted by Bombay stock exchange limited (BSE)

jointly with leading banks such as State Bank Of India, Bank Of
India, Bank Of Baroda, HDFC BANK, Standard Chartered Bank,
Union Bank Of India and Centurion Bank.

CDSL was set up with the objective of providing convenient,

dependable and secure depository services at affordable cost to
all market participants. Some of the important milestones of CDSL
system are:
• CDSL received the certificate of commencement of business
from SEBI in February, 1999.

• Honorable union finance minister, Shri Yashwant Sinha

flagged of the operations of CDSL on July 15, 1999.

• Settlement of trades in the DEMAT mode through BOI

shareholding limited, the clearing house of BSE, started in
July, 1999.

• All leading stock exchanges like the national stock exchange,

Calcutta stock exchange, Delhi stock exchange, Ahmedabad
stock exchange, et al have established connectivity with

• At the end of December, 2007, over 5000 issuers have

admitted their securities (equities, bonds, debentures,
commercial papers), units of mutual funds, certificate of
deposits, etc. into the CDSL system.
