Central Depository Services Of India Limited(CDSL)Central depository services of India ltd were the second depository to be grantedthe commencement certificate by SEBI on 8 February 1999, inaugurated on 15July 1999. It is promoted by the Bombay stock exchange, in association of bank ofIndia. Both NSDL and CDSL interface with investors through their serviceproviders known as DP. The depository is interconnected. It is possible to transfershares from one depository to another.CDSL was promoted by The Stock Exchange, Mumbai (BSE) jointly with leadingbanks 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 setup with the objective of providing convenient, dependable „and secure depositoryservices at affordable cost to all market participants.Milestones of CDSL system :1.CDSL received the certificate of commencement of business from SEBI inFebruary 1999.2. Honorable union finance minister, Shri Yashwanth Sinha flagged off theoperations of CDSL on July 15 1999.3.

All leading stock exchanges like national stock exchange, Calcutta stockexchange, Delhi stock exchange, stock exchange Ahemdabad, etc haveestablished Connectivity with CDSL.5. As at the end of Dec 2004, over 4900 issuers have admitted their securities(equities, bonds, debentures, and commercial papers), units of mutual funds,certificate of deposits etc. into the CDSL system. CDSL‟s demat services areextended through its agents called Depository Participants (DP). The DP is
the link between the investor and CDSL. An investor who opens a demataccount with a DP can utilize the services offered by CDSL. While the OPprocesses the instructions of the investor , the account and records thereof ismaintained with CDSL.6. The recurring costs to be incurred by a CDSL DP in terms of maintainingback-upsand the related data storage are minimal. This enables a CDSL DP to offerdepository services to investors at an attractive price and at the same timeachieve break-even faster at much lower volumes. The centralizedarchitecture also allows CDSL-DP to make available to the investors a to-theminute status of their account and transactions.BENEFITS AND SAFETY OF DEPOSITORY SYSTEM1.

Elimination of all risks associated with physicalcertificate:Dealing with physical securities have the associated risks of loss of certificatesduring movements to and from the registrars. These expose the investor to cost ofobtaining duplicate certificates, advertisement etc., such problems don‟t arise in thedepository environment.3. No stamp duty:No stamp duty for transfer of equity instruments and units of mutual funds in thissystem.4. Immediate transfer and registration of certificate:Once the securities are credited, to the investors account on payout, he becomes thelegal owner of the securities.
5. Faster settlement cycle:The exclusive demat segment follow rolling settlement of T+2 days which enablesfaster turnover of stock and enhance liquidity with the investor.6.

Reduction in brokerage:Brokers may provide a reduction in the brokerage of 0.25% to 0.5% for tradingin dematerialised securities as it reduces their back office cost of handlingpaper.11. Reduction in handling huge volumes of paper:In the physical environment every entity involved in purchase or sale of securitieswas to handle paper and pass on the paper to the next entity. But in the depositorysystem only the delivery instruction to be given by the client is in the form ofpaper.
12. Periodic status reports:DP‟s need to provide periodic reports to investors on their holding andtransactions. Dematerialized securities can be delivered in the physical segment:From April 1998 this facility is available at stock-exchange where trading indematerialized securities is allowed.
