  7. 7. Indian Stock Markets are one of the oldest in Asia. Its history dates back to nearly200 years ago. The earliest records of security dealings in India are meager andobscure. The East India Company was the dominant institution in those days andbusiness in its loan securities used to be transacted towards the close of theeighteenth century.By 1830s business on corporate stocks and shares in Bank and Cotton presses tookplace in Bombay. Though the trading list was broader in 1839, there were only halfa dozen brokers recognized by banks and merchants during 1840 and 1850.The 1850s witnessed a rapid development of commercial enterprise and brokeragebusiness attracted many men into the field and by 1860 the number of brokersincreased into 60.In 1860-61 the American Civil War broke out and cotton supply from UnitedStates of Europe was stopped; thus, the Share Mania in India begun. The numberof brokers increased to about 200 to 250. However, at the end of the AmericanCivil War, in 1865, a disastrous slump began (for example, Bank of Bombay Sharewhich had touched Rs 2850 could only be sold at Rs. 87).In 1887, they formally established in Bombay, the "Native Share and StockBrokers Association" (which is alternatively known as "The Stock Exchange"). In1895, the Stock Exchange acquired a premise in the same street and it wasinaugurated in 1899. Thus, the Stock Exchange at Bombay was consolidated.Thus in the same way, gradually with the passage of time number of exchangeswere increased and at currently it reached to the figure of 24 stock exchanges. 7
  8. 8. TRANSACTION CYCLE: Decision to Placing trade Order Funds or Securitie Transaction Trade s Execution Cycle Settlement of trades Clearing of TradesA person holding assets (Securities/Funds), either to meet his liquidity needs or toreshuffle his holdings in response to changes in his perception about risk and returnof the assets, decides to buy or sell the securities. He selects a broker and instructshim to place buy/sell order on an exchange. The order is converted to a trade assoon as it finds a matching sell/buy order. At the end of the trade cycle, the tradesare netted to determine the obligations of the trading member’s securities/funds asper settlement cycle. Buyer/seller delivers funds/ securities and receivessecurities/funds and acquires ownership of the securities.A securities transaction cycle is presented above. Just because of this Transactioncycle, the whole business of Securities and Stock Broking has emerged. And as an 8
  9. 9. extension of stock broking, the business of Online Stock broking/ Online Trading/E-Broking has emerged.At the end of the American Civil War, the brokers who thrived out of Civil War in1874, found a place in a street (now appropriately called as Dalal Street) wherethey would conveniently assemble and transact business. In 1887, they formallyestablished in Bombay, the "Native Share and Stock Brokers Association" (whichis alternatively known as “The Stock Exchange "). In 1895, the Stock Exchangeacquired a premise in the same street and it was inaugurated in 1899. Thus, theStock Exchange at Bombay was consolidated.HISTORY OF ONLINE TRADING:Online stock trading is very old concept for big institutions who tradethru private networks owned by Reuters "Instinet" and a system called"Posit" since 1969. But it becomes internet based for lay men only in late 90s.Funny, that actually idea was first time used by a company making Beercalled "WIT beer" to help its shareholders trade its shares. That’s how "WITCapital" was born which is considered pioneer of this concept. It was mademainstream and household name by a offshoot of Charles Schwab & Co calledeSchwab which is used by millions of people in USA. Lot of NRIs i know playin US stock market even when they come to India for holidays via websiteof eSchwabe.There are other serious players like E*trade, DATEK online etc. All thiscompanies ask you to start account with US $5000 and you can buy and sellstock using these funds. They also issue you a check book which you can useto make payments from this account. Or use their ATM card to withdraw cashfrom your stock trading account.Today practically every big name brokerage firm offers online stock tradingas it reduces their costs. Earlier they had army of brokers on phone withclients executing trade, which is done by computers accepting orders from 9
  10. 10. clients directly. This firm now offers human access to high net worth accounts, andto rest at charge per trade.E- Broking - A small beginning:You have some money to dabble with. Trading shares on BSE/NSE has alwaysbeen your dream. When will you ever find the time? And besides, the hassle offinding a broker is not easy. Realizing there is untapped market of investors whowant to be able to execute their own trades when it suits them, brokers have takentheir trading rooms to the Internet. Known as online brokers, they allow you to buyand sell shares via Internet.There are 2 types of online trading service: discount brokers and full serviceonline broker. Discount online brokers allow you to trade via Internet at reducedrates. Some provide quality research, other don’t. Full service online brokerage islinked to existing brokerages. These brokers allow their clients to place onlineorders with the option of talking/ chatting to brokers if advice is needed. Brokeragerates here are higher.,,,, Geojit,,, are some of the online broking sites in India. With Net trading insecurities and rapid consolidation between multiple stock exchanges, theinternational securities marketplace is fast becoming a "global village" through thecreation of a universal virtual equity market.Compared to the Western countries, online trading is still in its infancy in India.With trading turnover at around Rs. 10 crores per day from online tradingcompared to a combined gross turnover of around Rs. 9000-10,000 crores handledby the BSE and NSE together, online trading has a long way to go.INTERNET TRADING IN INDIA: 10
  11. 11. In the past, investors had no option but to contact their broker to get real timeaccess to market data. The Net brings data to the investor on line and net brokingenables him to trade on a click. Now information has become easily accessible toboth retail as well as big investors.The development of broking in India can be categorized in 3 phases:1. Stock brokers offering on their sites features such as live portfolio manager, livequotes, market research and news to attract more investors.2. Brokers offering on line broking and relationship management by providing andoffering analysis and information to investors during broking and non-brokinghours based on their profile and needs, that is, customized services.3. Brokers (now e-brokers) will offer value management or services such as initialpublic offerings on line, asset allocation, portfolio management, financial planning,tax planning, insurance services and enable the investors to take better and well-considered decisions.In the US, 82 per cent of the deals are done on line. The European on line brokingmarket is expected to be of $8 billions and is likely to raise five fold by 2002. InIndia, presently Internet trading can take place through the order routing system,which will route client orders to exchanges trading systems for execution of tradeson stock exchanges (NSE and BSE). This will also require interface with banks tofacilitate instant cash debit or credit and the depository system for debit or credit ofsecurities.OBJECTIVES OF INTERNET TRADING • Increase transparency in the markets. • Enhance market quality through improved liquidity, by increasing quote continuity and market depth. • Reduce settlement risks due to open trades, by elimination of mismatches. • Provide management information system (MIS). • Introduce flexibility in system, to handle growing volumes easily and to support nationwide expansion of market activity. 11
  12. 12. • Besides, through Internet trading three fundamental objectives of securities regulation can be easily achieved, these are: Investor protection, creation of a fair and efficient market and, reduction of the systematic risks.Other leading cities in stock market operations:Ahmedabad gained importance next to Bombay with respect to cotton textileindustry. After 1880, many mills originated from Ahmedabad and rapidly forgedahead. As new mills were floated, the need for a Stock Exchange at Ahmedabadwas realized and in 1894 the brokers formed "The Ahmedabad Share and StockBrokers Association".What the cotton textile industry was to Bombay and Ahmedabad, the jute industrywas to Calcutta. Also tea and coal industries were the other major industrial groupsin Calcutta. After the Share Mania in 1861-65, in the 1870s there was a sharpboom in jute shares, which was followed by a boom in tea shares in the 1880s and1890s; and a coal boom between 1904 and 1908. On June 1908, some leadingbrokers formed "The Calcutta Stock Exchange Association".In the beginning of the twentieth century, the industrial revolution was on the wayin India with the Swadeshi Movement; and with the inauguration of the Tata Ironand Steel Company Limited in 1907, an important stage in industrial advancementunder Indian enterprise was reached.Indian cotton and jute textiles, steel, sugar,paper and flour mills and all companies generally enjoyed phenomenal prosperity,due to the First World War.In 1920, the then demure city of Madras had the maiden thrill of a stock exchangefunctioning in its midst, under the name and style of "The Madras StockExchange" with 100 members. However, when boom faded, the number ofmembers stood reduced from 100 to 3, by 1923, and so it went out of existence.In 1935, the stock market activity improved, especially in South India where therewas a rapid increase in the number of textile mills and many plantation companieswere floated. In 1937, a stock exchange was once again organized in Madras -Madras Stock Exchange Association (Pvt) Limited. (In 1957 the name waschanged to Madras Stock Exchange Limited).Lahore Stock Exchange was formed in 1934 and it had a brief life. It was mergedwith the Punjab Stock Exchange Limited, which was incorporated in 1936.Indian Stock Exchanges - An Umbrella Growth: 12
  13. 13. The Second World War broke out in 1939. It gave a sharp boom, which wasfollowed by a slump. But, in 1943, the situation changed radically, when India wasfully mobilized as a supply base.On account of the restrictive controls on cotton, bullion, seeds and othercommodities, those dealing in them found in the stock market as the only outlet fortheir activities. They were anxious to join the trade and numerous others swelledtheir number. Many new associations were constituted for the purpose and StockExchanges in all parts of the country were floated.The Uttar Pradesh Stock Exchange Limited (1940), Nagpur Stock ExchangeLimited (1940) and Hyderabad Stock Exchange Limited (1944) were incorporated.In Delhi two stock exchanges - Delhi Stock and Share Brokers AssociationLimited and the Delhi Stocks and Shares Exchange Limited - were floated andlater in June 1947, amalgamated into the Delhi Stock Exchange AssociationLimited.RANGE OF PRODUCT AND SERVICES:Market Size: Growth of Online Brokerage market:In five years of its existence in India, online broking has grown to account for atenth of the total trading volumes. If the numbers are considered for only the retailsegments, the growth is starker. Almost half of the Rs 5,000 crore-6,000 croredaily market volumes on the NSE are accounted for by non-retail entities such asforeign institutional investors, domestic institutions, mutual funds and arbitragetraders. Institutions arent online customers anyway. Of the rest of the retailsegment, current estimates suggest that online brokings reach is close to 30 percent.As of September this year, there were 11.7 lakhs Internet trading accountsregistered with the NSE, of which roughly 9.5 lakhs are unique users. Its still asmall proportion of the estimated 3 crore Internet users in the country. As moresurfers take to trading online, analysts expect their number to keep doubling every 13
  14. 14. year until 30-40 per cent of Indias overall trades are done online, as is the case insome mature Internet markets like South Koreas.The Internets effect here has more to do with the bandwidth it has created for bothbrokers and clients. Banga, director of India bulls offers an example. "Traders fromAjmer use our online platform. It would otherwise have been prohibitively loss-making to open a branch there." Thanks to the new channel, volumes are growingfaster in the non-metros, where transparency is low in offline trading. "Thesecustomers were made to pay higher charges by small brokers, since they werentaware of the market rates," says Vikash Shankar of is one ofthe reasons why more than 60 per cent of Sharekhan’s online trading turnovercomes from non-metros.Formation of the National Stock Exchange (NSE):With the liberalization of the Indian economy, it was found inevitable to lift theIndian stock market trading system on par with the international standards. On thebasis of the recommendations of high-powered Pherwani Committee, the NationalStock Exchange was incorporated in 1992 by Industrial Development Bank ofIndia, Industrial Credit, and Investment Corporation of India, Industrial FinanceCorporation of India, all Insurance Corporations, selected commercial banks andothers.Trading at NSE can be classified under two broad categories:(a) Wholesale debt market and(b) Capital market.Wholesale debt market operations are similar to money market operations -institutions and corporate bodies enter into high value transactions in financialinstruments such as government securities, treasury bills, public sector unit bonds,commercial paper, certificate of deposit, etc.There are two kinds of players in NSE:(a) Trading members and(b) Participants. 14
  15. 15. Recognized members of NSE are called trading members who trade on behalf ofthemselves and their clients. Participants include trading members and largeplayers like banks who take direct settlement responsibility.Trading at NSE takes place through a fully automated screen-based tradingmechanism, which adopts the principle of an order-driven market. Tradingmembers can stay at their offices and execute the trading, since they are linkedthrough a communication network. The prices at which the buyer and seller arewilling to transact will appear on the screen. When the prices match the transactionwill be completed and a confirmation slip will be printed at the office of the tradingmember.NSE has several advantages over the traditional trading exchanges. Theyare as follows: • NSE brings an integrated stock market trading network across the nation. • Investors can trade at the same price from anywhere in the country since inter-market operations are streamlined coupled with the countrywide access to the securities. • Delays in communication, late payments and the malpractices prevailing in the traditional trading mechanism can be done away with greater operational efficiency and informational transparency in the stock market operations, with the support of total computerized network.Unless stock markets provide professionalized service, small investors and foreigninvestors will not be interested in capital market operations. And capital marketbeing one of the major sources of long-term finance for industrial projects, Indiacannot afford to damage the capital market path. In this regard NSE gains vitalimportance in the Indian capital market system.Why people trust NSE?Unbiased:The National Stock Exchange of India (NSEIL) has been trusted by the securitiesmarkets for its unbiased independence and professionalism. The function of 15
  16. 16. forecasting has become more meaningful as the information comes from a source,which is not only reliable but has no vested interest of its own in the marketmovements.Market Representation:NSE-MIBID/MIBOR is based on rates polled by NSE from a representative panelof 31 banks/institutions/primary dealers.Transparent:The reference rate is released to all the market participants simultaneously throughvarious media, making it transparent with the aspiration of the market. Ensuingtransparency helps the market participants to judge the market mood and theprobable rate one is likely to encounter in the market. This information is usefulnot only to the banks but also to the issuers and investors.Reliable:The high level of co-relation between actual deals and the reference rate gives anindication of its reliability. The bootstrapping technique guards against thepossibility of cartelization and of extreme observations influencing the meanScientifically Computed:The methodology of "Polling" with "Bootstrapping" is scientific and the values aregenerated through a system that has been extensively tested. The techniqueinvolves generating multiple data sets based on the rates polled with a dynamicallydetermined number of iterations, identification of outliers, trimming the data set ofits extreme values and computation of the mean and its standard deviation.Elimination of Noise: The trimming procedure is vulnerable to market manipulation of the rates due tothe amount of sampling noise. Excessive trimming may lead to loss of informationwhereas no trimming may lead to excessive influence of the extreme values. Toderive a true representative benchmark for the market NSE ensures that trimmingat any point does not exclude more than 20% of the observation for the bid and forthe ask rates. 16
  17. 17. Consistency:The Exchange ensures that everyday the NSE-MIBID/MIBOR along with therespective standard deviations are disseminated to the market at 0955 (IST) forovernight rate and at 1215 (IST) for 14 day, 1 month and 3 month rates.Usage:The NSE-MIBID/MIBOR rate is used as a bench mark rate for majority of dealsstruck for Interest Rate Swaps, Forward Rate Agreements, Floating RateDebentures and Term Deposits.

  31. 31. DISCUSSION ON TRAININGStudent’s work profile(role and responsibilities) :I worked there with SHAREKHAN LTD. with a profile of sales trainee. Thisprofile offers me to understand the need of customer and provide them the bestdeal possible with maximization of the profit, both for the company as well as forthe customer. The most important aspect for the role of trainee is trust. So far fulfillment ofthe targets one needs to: • Capitalize on the old and loyal clientage which can be building slowly by advising people in the best possible way. • Generating new leads through various activities.Generation of leads : 31
  32. 32. Since I was new in the field so I had to start from scratch and generate newleads to sustain in the market.Cold calling is one of the trusted ways of getting to the customers without meetingthem. Although the rate of conversion remained very less, for cold calling thequality and accent remains a very important criterion. This activity gives me mixedresult. I often got success and generated many leads through it but it also landedme in awkward position where the customer were in different mood and made ushear words for which a marketer should be always prepared to hear. Corporatecalls always remained more difficult to crack with respect to retail sector.The corporate were the most difficult and most temping to get the business from. Ittook me one one day to crack Hi-tech Gears. At SHAREKHAN LTD. after gettingthe product knowledge in the first week at the branch I was also allotted distributorto work with. In the initial phase I was accompanied by more experienced staff.After I became known to the market and procedure I started attending calls aloneonly.After the third week my performance also improved and I was able to get close tothe targets, though it looked difficult to achieve in the beginning. To get awarenessof the every product I attended diversified calls. This helped me to implementcross selling to get better results.LIMITATIONS: 1. Cold Calling:• Voice and accent plays a major role.• The right time to call a customer cannot be decided, as the customer may in 32
  33. 33. a different mood at the time of calling.• Time consuming• Less success rate 2. Corporate:• Time consuming• Contacts with higher authorities play a major roleDescription of live experience :I was supposed to use the database provided by the company to make cold calls orby directly meeting people to get new leads.While making cold calls, we need to have:• Good Communication Skills (Voice quality is clear and articulate)• Persistent and able to bounce back from rejection• Good organizational skills. 33
  34. 34. • Ability to project a telephone personality (Enthusiasm, friendliness)• Flexibility: can adapt to different types of clients and new situations.Using a good database is very essential. “Eighty percent of our business comes from 20 percent of our customers" is afrequent statement at any sales convention. Theres hardly a sales executive who isnot aware of the 80/20 rule”.While talking to customers, I analyze their needs. Whether they want to go forinvestment purpose or insurance or both. Suggest them the plan that best suitsthem. If they agree to it then either we send across the agents to close the deal orclose it themselves. 34
  35. 35. Problems faced while selling products:• Customer dissatisfied with the services.• People fear that Sharekhan Being a Private company and a new entrant may be able to sustain or not.• Past experience, word of mouth.• Misguidance by agents.• People do not want insurance products.• Lack of knowledge and less awareness about demat account. 35
  36. 36. • People risk appetite is very low, so they are afraid of mutual fund as well. 36
  37. 37. Share khan Demat AccountsOverview of Demat Account :Demat account allows you to buy, sell and transact shares without the endlesspaperwork and delays. It is also safe, secure and convenient.In India, a demat account, the abbreviation for dematerialized account, is a typeof banking account which dematerializes paper-based physical stock shares. Thedematerialized account is used to avoid holding physical shares: the shares arebought and sold through a stock broker.This account is popular in India. The Securities and Exchange Board of India(SEBI) mandates a demat account for share trading above 500 shares. As of April2006, it became mandatory that any person holding a demat account shouldpossess a Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the deadline for submission ofPAN details to the depository lapsed on January 2007.Is a demat account a must?Now a day, practically all trades have to be settled in dematerialized form.Although the market regulator, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI),has allowed trades of up to 500 shares to be settled in physical form, nobody wantsphysical shares any more. So a demat account is a must for trading and investing.Why demat?The demat account reduces brokerage charges, makes pledging/hypothecation ofshares easier, enables quick ownership of securities on settlement resulting inincreased liquidity, avoids confusion in the ownership title of securities, and 37
  38. 38. provides easy receipt of public issue allotments.It also helps you avoid bad deliveries caused by signature mismatch, postal delaysand loss of certificates in transit. Further, it eliminates risks associated withforgery, counterfeiting and loss due to fire, theft or mutilation. Demat accountholders can also avoid stamp duty (as against 0.5 per cent payable on physicalshares), avoid filling up of transfer deeds, and obtain quick receipt of such benefitsas stock splits and bonuses.What is dematerialization?Dematerialization is the process by which physical certificates of an investor areconverted to an equivalent number of securities in electronic form and creditedinto the investor’s account with his/her DP.Why DEMAT a/c likes a BANK a/c? 38
  39. 39. Just as you have to open an a/c with a bank if you want to save your money, makecheque payments etc, you need to open a demat a/c if you want to buy or sellstocks. So it just like a bank a/c where actual money replaced by shares.Example : let’s say your portfolio has 100 of SATYAM, 200 of IBM and 120 ofTCS shares. All these will show in you’re a/c. so you don’t have to possess anyphysical certificate that you own these shares. They all are held electronically inyou’re a/c.Steps involved in opening a demat account :First an investor has to approach a DP and fill up an account opening form. Theaccount opening form must be supported by copies of any one of the approveddocuments to serve as proof of identity (POI) and proof of address (POA) asspecified by SEBI. Besides, production of PAN card in original at the time ofopening of account has been made mandatory effective from April 01, 2006.All applicants should carry original documents for verification by an authorizedofficial of the depository participant, under his signature.Further, the investor has to sign an agreement with DP in a depository prescribedstandard format, which details rights and duties of investor and DP. DP shouldprovide the investor with a copy of the agreement and schedule of charges for theirfuture reference. The DP will open the account in the system and give an accountnumber, which is also called BO ID (Beneficiary Owner Identification number).The DP may revise the charges by giving 30 days notice in advance. SEBI hasrationalized the cost structure for dematerialization by removing account openingcharges, transaction charges for credit of securities, and custody charges videcircular dated January 28, 2005.Further, SEBI has vide circular dated November 09, 2005 advised that with effectfrom January 09, 2006, no charges shall be levied by a depository on DP andconsequently, by a DP on a Beneficiary Owner (BO) when a BO transfers all thesecurities lying in his account to another branch of the same DP or to another DPof the same depository or another depository, provided the BO Account/s at 39
  40. 40. transferee DP and at transferor DP are one and the same, i.e. identical in allrespects.In case the BO Account at transferor DP is a joint account, the BO Account attransferee DP should also be a joint account in the same sequence of ownership.Rights: 1. You can open more than one depository account in the same name with single DP/ multiple DPs. 2. No minimum balance is required to be maintained in a depository account. 3. You can give a onetime standing instruction to your DP to receive all the credits coming to your depository account automatically.DEMAT Benefits?  A safe and convenient way to hold securities.  immediate transfer of securities.  No stamp duty on transfer of securities(0.5 % on physical shares).  Elimination of risks associated with physical certificates such as bad delivery, fake securities , delays , theft etc.  Reduction in paper work.  Reduction in transaction cost.  No odd lot problem , even one share can be sold. 40
  41. 41.  Nomination facility.  Holding investment in equity and debt instruments in a single account.etc.DEMAT Conversion :- 1. Surrender the certificates of physical shares for dematerialization to your depository participants. 2. Depository participant intimates depository of the request through the system. 3. Depository participant submit the certificates to the registrar to the issuer company. 4. Registrar confirms the dematerialization request from depository. 5. After dematerializing the certificates, registrar updates accounts and informs depository of the completion of dematerialization. 6. Depository updates its accounts and informs the depository participant. 7. Depository participant updates demat a/c of the investor.What is a Depository?A depository is an organisation which holds securities of investors in electronicform at the request of the investors through a registered Depository Participant. Italso provides services related to transactions in securities.SEBI registered depository’s :-NSDL :- National securities depository limitedCDSL :- Central depository services limitedMinimum net worth required for a depository is 100 crores 41
  42. 42. NSDL: Although India had a vibrant capital market, which is more than a century old,the paper-based settlement of trades caused substantial problems like bad deliveryand delayed transfer of title till recently. The enactment of Depositories Act inAugust 1996 paved the way for establishment of NSDL, the first depository inIndia. This depository promoted by institutions of national stature responsible foreconomic development of the country has since established a nationalinfrastructure of international standard that handles most of the trading andsettlement in dematerialized form in Indian capital market. Using innovative andflexible technology systems, NSDL works to support the investors and brokers inthe capital market of the country. NSDL aims at ensuring the safety and soundnessof Indian marketplaces by developing settlement solutions that increase efficiency,minimize risk and reduce costs. At NSDL, we play a quiet but central role indeveloping products and services that will continue to nurture the growing needs ofthe financial services industry.In the depository system, securities are held in depository accounts, which is moreor less similar to holding funds in bank accounts. Transfer of ownership ofsecurities is done through simple account transfers. This method does away withall the risks and hassles normally associated with paperwork. Consequently, thecost of transacting in a depository environment is considerably lower as comparedto transacting in certificates.DEPOSITORY PARTICIPANTS:A Depository Participant (DP) is described as an agent of the depository. They arethe intermediaries between the depository and the investors. The relationshipbetween the DPs and the depository is governed by an agreement made betweenthe two under the Depositories Act. In a strictly legal sense, a DP is an entity that isregistered as such with SEBI under the provisions of the SEBI Act. As per theprovisions of this Act, a DP can offer depository-related services only afterobtaining a certificate of registration from SEBI. SEBI (D&P) Regulations, 1996prescribe a minimum net worth of Rs.50 lakh for stockbrokers, R&T agents andnon-banking finance companies (NBFC), for granting them a certificate ofregistration to act as DPs. If a stockbroker seeks to act as a DP in more than onedepository, he should comply with the specified net worth criterion separately foreach such depository. No minimum net worth criterion has been prescribed for 42
  43. 43. other categories of DPs. However, depositories can fix a higher net worth criterionfor their DPs. NSDL requires a minimum net worth of Rs.100 lakh to be eligible tobecome a DP as against Rs.50 lakh prescribed by SEBI (D&P) Regulations.Instruments :The changes in the regulatory framework of the capital market and fiscal policieshave also resulted in newer kinds of financial instruments (securities) beingintroduced in the market. Also, a lot of financial innovation by companies who arenow permitted to undertake treasury operations has resulted in newer kinds ofinstruments - all of which can be traded – being introduced. The variations in allthese instruments depend on the tenure, the nature of security, the interest rate, thecollateral security offered and the trading features, etc • Debentures • Bonds • Preference Share • Equity Shares • Government securities • Capital Market Processes • Initial Public Offering (IPO) • Private Placement • Preferential Offer/Rights Issue • Private PlacementBenefits of Depository System:In the depository system, the ownership and transfer of securities takes place 43
  44. 44. by means of electronic book entries. At the outset, this system rids the capitalmarket of the dangers related to handling of paper. NSDL provides numerousdirect and indirect benefits, like:· Elimination of bad deliveriesIn the depository environment, once holdings of an investor are dematerialized, thequestion of bad delivery does not arise i.e. they cannot be held "under objection".In the physical environment, buyer was required to take the risk of transfer andface uncertainty of the quality of assets purchased. In a depository environmentgood money certainly begets good quality of assets.· Elimination of all risks associated with physical certificatesDealing in physical securities have associated security risks of theft of stocks,mutilation of certificates, loss of certificates during movements through and fromthe registrars, thus exposing the investor to the cost of obtaining duplicatecertificates and advertisements, etc. This problem does not arise in the depositoryenvironment.· No stamp dutyFor transfer of any kind of securities in the depository. This waiver extends toequity shares, debt instruments and units of mutual funds.· Immediate transfer and registration of SecuritiesIn the depository environment, once the securities are credited to the investorsaccount on pay out, he becomes the legal owner of the securities.There is no further need to send it to the companys registrar for registration.Having purchased securities in the physical environment, the investor has tosend it to the companys registrar so that the change of ownership can be registered.This process usually takes around three to four months and is rarely completedwithin the statutory framework of two months thus exposing the investor toopportunity cost of delay in transfer and to risk of loss in transit. To overcome this, 44
  45. 45. the normally accepted practice is to hold the securities in street names i.e. not toregister the change of ownership.However, if the investors miss a book closure the securities are not good fordelivery and the investor would also stand to loose his corporateentitlements.· Faster settlement cycleThe exclusive demat segments follow rolling settlement cycle of T+2 i.e. thesettlement of trades will be on the 2nd working day from the trade day. This willenable faster turnover of stock and more liquidity with the investor.Faster disbursement of non-cash corporate·benefits like rights, bonus, etc.NSDL provides for direct credit of non-cash corporate entitlements to aninvestors account, thereby ensuring faster disbursement and avoiding riskof loss of certificates in transit.·Reduction in brokerage by many brokers fortrading in dematerialized securitiesBrokers provide this benefit to investors as dealing in dematerialized securitiesreduces their back office cost of handling paper and also eliminates the risk ofbeing the introducing broker.· Reduction in handling of huge volumes of paper· Periodic status reports to investors on their holdings andtransactions, leading to better controls. 45
  46. 46. · Elimination of problems related to change of address ofinvestor, transmission, etcIn case of change of address or transmission of demat shares, investors are savedfrom undergoing the entire change procedure with each company or registrar.Investors have to only inform their DP with all relevant documents and therequired changes are effected in the database of all the companies, where theinvestor is a registered holder of securities.·Elimination of problems related to sellingsecurities on behalf of a minorA natural guardian is not required to take court approval for selling dematsecurities on behalf of a minor.· Ease in portfolio monitoringSince statement of account gives a consolidated position of investmentsin all instruments. 46

Thus it may takeyou a month from the date you hand over shares, to receive demat credit.11. Dematerialization would be done only when the issuer / their R&TAgent is satisfied of genuineness of securities & ownership status12. All the joint holders should sign the DRF.13. The pattern of holding in the DRF should match the pattern of holdingon the share certificate & the pattern in which account is opened.14. Demat requests with name(s) not matching exactly with the name(s)appearing on the certificates merely on account of initials not being spelt outfully or put after or prior to the surname, would be processed, provided thesignature(s) of the client(s) on the DRF tallies with the specimen signature(s)available with the issuer/ their R & T agent.15. If the signature in the DRF does not match with the signatureavailable with the issuer/ their R & T agent, the issuer/ their R & T agent mayat the time of demat confirmation, ask for additional documentation (like bankattestation/ notarization, etc.) to prove that the certificate belongs to the personwho forwarded the DRF.16.

At these stock exchanges, two segments would be available to trade in dematerialized securities : o Unified (erstwhile physical) segment - In this segment delivery obligation can be met by delivering dematerialized or physical securities at the option of the seller. However, for a select list of securities prescribed by SEBI, securities cannot be delivered in physical form in the unified segment, of stock exchanges connected to NSDL. This list presently covers 160 securities. This list has been expanded to cover a total of 200 securities with effect from January 17, 2000.
