|delivery instruction slip|
Transfers and Transactions in a Demat Account through Delivery Instruction Slip (DIS):
A demat account is equivalent to a bank account. Here, the securities are kept as balance in your account which can be later sold or transferred as per requirement.
Transaction of Securities can be a On Market and Off Market.
On market Transaction: Any transaction for sale and purchase of securities through a broker on the stock exchange to be settled through Clearing Corporation / Clearing House is generally termed as On Market transaction.
Off Market Transaction: Off Market transaction is one which is settled directly between two Demat Account Holders without using the broker and where no Clearing Corporation / Clearing House is involved.
All demat transactions involve use of Delivery Instruction Slips (DIS). These are equivalent to Cheque Book and must be kept in safe custody.
Upon submission of DIS, the Depository Participant processes the DIS and debits the clients account with the said no of shares. Simultaneously, the target demat account is credited with the same number of shares.
High-value transactions, where the value of the securities exceeds `5 Lac, will be verified by the depository participant to keep a check on fraudulent transfers.
Precautions to be followed with DIS:
For On-Market Trade: One needs to enter the CM BP Id (Broker ID), CM Name, Settlement No, Name of the security, ISIN (the unique number of each security present in the demat holding statement), and the number being sold.
For Off-Market Trade: One needs to enter the name and ID of the Target Depository Participant and Target Client ID along with Name of the security, ISIN and the number of shares being transferred.
