    The process of dematerialisation is as follows:

    1. Surrender your certificates to your DP for dematerialisation 
    2. The DP intimates your request to the Depository through the 
    3. system 
    4. The DP submits the certificates to the Registrar and Share Transfer 
    5. Agent (RSTA) of the Company 
    6. In case of any objection or in case of any need for any additional 
    7. documents, the RSTA informs you directly. RSTA confirms the 
    8. dematerialisation request from Depository 
    9. After dematerialising the certificates, RSTA updates the accounts and informs Depository regarding completion of dematerialisation 
    10. Depository updates its accounts and informs the DP 
    11. The DP then updates your demat account by crediting the shares

    Before approaching your DP for demating your shares, you can check the list of shares and debentures that can be dematted from the websites of CDSL and NSDL .

    Points to remember

    Remember, to convert physical certificates into demat mode, the name in the share certificate should match with the name of the demat account holder.

    In case of joint holding, the name should be in the same order both in the physical certificate as well as in the demat account. However, you can request to change the order of the names of the joint holders in the share certificate by submitting a Transposition cum Demat Form.
