3. Sale/Delivery of Securities.

 

Securities transactions can be settled in demat form for the transactions done on stock exchanges connected to NSDL/CDSL. Trading in dematerialised securities is done through your broker just like trading in physical securities.

 

Sell dematerialised securities

  • You can sell your dematerialised securities in any of the stock exchanges linked to NSDL/CDSL through a broker of your choice.
  • You need to give a 'delivery instruction' to your DP for debit of your depository account and credit of your broker's clearing member account.
  • You receive payment from the broker for the sale in the same manner you would receive payment for a sale in the physical mode.

Buy dematerialised securities

  • You can purchase securities in any of the stock exchanges connected to NSDL/CDSL through a broker of your choice and make payment to your broker. Make sure you tell your broker you want only demat shares.
  • Broker receives credit in his clearing account with his DP on the day of payout. He can immediately transfer these securities to your depository account, provided your account is already active.
  • Broker gives instructions to his DP to debit his clearing member account and credit your depository account.

 

Delivery of security

 

To deliver securities in electronic form, you have to authorise the DP to transfer balances from your account.

  • You must give a debit authorisation to ICICI Bank in the booklet of instruction slips provided to you. The slip should be given physically at the nearest Branch.
    (You can also register for the e-Instruction facility to submit transfer instructions through Internet / IVR (Interactive Voice Response System) on Phone and with "Speak to Transfer" through our Phone Banking Officer )
  • In the instruction slip, you have to mention the counter-party account details. The counter-party account may be within the same DP (Intra-DP transfers) or with a different DP (Inter-DP transfers) within NSDL or with another depository - CDSL (Inter Depository Transfers). For transfers within NSDL, a TIFD (transfer instruction for delivery) is required. For transfers to a CDSL account, an IDT (inter-depository transfer instruction) is required and vica versa.

 3.1 Getting instruction slips (TIFD/IDT booklets)

  • You are provided a "Personalized TIFD booklet" at the time of opening the account. You will need to use slips from this booklet for all your transfers.
  • For IDT (Inter Depository Transfer slips), request for the same in writing to the nearest Branch. The request should be signed in presence of the Branch Officer. Ensure you use slips allotted to your demat account only as per business rules of NSDL/CDSL.
  • Please do not use someone else's slip since that will not be accepted by the system and also cannot be processed as per business rules of NSDL/CDSL.
  • Please do not give your blank slip to anyone as this may lead to frauds and associated complications. If you lose your booklet, report the same in writing (under signature of all account holders) to the nearest Branch immediately.
  • If you are nearing exhaustion of all slips in the booklet, you can request for reissue of a new booklet by visiting nearest bank branch. Submit the request on the requisition slip present in your existing booklet. Where you are unable to present the request on the requisition slip, you can submit a letter. However, the letter should be signed in presence of the Branch Officer You can also register for the Internet Banking and Phone Banking facilities to submit the request on Internet / Phone.
  • The booklet will be couriered to you and will reach you within a week from the date of submitting the request.
  • On receiving your booklet, verify that your DPID, DP Account No. and name is present on all slips including the Requisition slip.
  • In emergencies where you have exhausted your TIFD/IDT booklet and cannot wait for the time required to fulfill your request for a new booklet, you can also get TIFD / IDT slips issued across the counter for emergency use.
  • For getting an emergency slip from your branch:
    • You have to personally visit your home branch
    • You have to personally visit your home branch
    • You have to request for the slip on the prescribed form available at the branch.
     
  • TIFD / IDT issued in such a manner are valid only for immediate use

3.2 Filling up an instruction slip (TIFD/IDT)

 

The request should be filled up in the appropriate slip issued to you. For transferring securities to an account within NSDL, use TIFD slips. For transferring securities from an account within NSDL to an account with CDSL, use IDT slips.

 

There are two common types of accounts within NSDL/CDSL - beneficiary accounts (opened by the normal investors) and clearing member pool accounts (opened by brokers). Accordingly there are two types of transfers possible with TIFDs.

 

An instruction for transfer of security from a Beneficiary Account to a Clearing Member Account (Broker's pool account) is termed as a Market TIFD. This is for delivering securities to the broker for onward delivery to the stock exchange towards fulfilling settlement obligations in respect of trades done on a stock exchange (Market Trades).

 

An instruction for transfer of security from a Beneficiary Account to another Beneficiary Account is termed as an Off Market TIFD (Off Market Trades).

 

The following points are to be noted:

 

Details are to be filled up only for Market Trades on a TIFD slip.

  • CM-BP-ID: This is the Clearing Member Business Partner ID of the Broker to whom the securities are to be transferred. The CM-BP-ID is an 8 character code starting with 'IN' provided by NSDL/CDSL to the clearing member. You should find this out from your broker. Any incorrect entry can result in transfers to the wrong account.
  • CM Name: This is the name of the Broker to whom the securities are to be transferred. This is the market type on which the trade has been done by your broker.
