Q: What is Dematerialization (demat) ?  

A: Dematerialization is a process by which physical certificates are converted into electronic form for credit to the investors account in the depository. Once a security is eligible for holding in CDBL then all stock exchange trades must be settled through the depository. This means that sellers must have securities in the depository (i.e. the securities must have been dematerialized) before the broker can execute the sale order.

To dematerialize securities investors should take their share certificates to a participant. The participant will request the investor to complete a dematerialization request form. The participant will take the documents to the issuer who (if the certificate is valid) will update the register by moving the securities from the certificated portion of the register to the depository portion. The issuer will then confirm the dematerialization to the depository and the depository will credit the securities to the investor's account. The participant will be able to see the balances in all the accounts that he controls through a computer link with CDBL. Investors do not need to wait until they wish to sell to dematerialize their holdings. Once a security is eligible, investors may open accounts and lodge securities at any time.

 

Q: How Buying and selling are happening? 

A: The introduction of CDBL does not make any difference to the process of buying and selling although it does make a difference to the settlement of such trades. Where investors have a CDBL account through their broker then the act of giving a sell order to the broker also authorizes him to move Sucrets from the account to settle the sale. The broker will move the securities when he enters the order into the market. If the order is executed then the securities are used to settle the sale. If the order is not executed then the broker will move the securities back to the investor’s account.

Where investors have a CDBL account through a custodian (who is not a broker) then they must advise their custodian that they have sold as they do for physical securities. However, the securities must be in a CDBL account before they are sold and the broker may wish to check this fact with the custodian before executing the order. On the settlement date of a bough trade the broker will move securities to the account of the buying investors (provided the investor has paid). Investors may leave the securities in their account (ready for sale when they wish to sell or to avoid the need to hold certificates) or they may request the participant to rematerialise the securities. 

 

Q: What is the procedure for Rematerialisation (remat)?

A:
To rematerialise securities that are in a CDBL account the account holder must instruct the participant through which he holds his account by completing a rematerialisation request form.

The participant will instruct CDBL and the securities will then be debited from the account upon confirmation by the issuer.

The issuer will transfer the holding from the depository portion of its register to the certificated portion of its register.

The issuer will provide the investor with a share certificate within 30 days of a rematerialisation request.
