Transfer of Shares to IEPF account in case of unclaimed dividends

The dividends declared by companies whose shares you own are transferred directly to your bank account linked to your Demat account by the Registrar and Share Transfer Agent (RTA). It is important to ensure that your bank account details are accurate and up to date, as any discrepancies can result in the dividend not being credited to your account.

In accordance with the Investor Education and Protection Fund (IEPF) (Accounting, Audit, Transfer, and Refund) Rules of 2016, any shares held by shareholders who have not claimed dividends for a consecutive period of seven years or more are mandated to be transferred to the Demat account of the IEPF Authority. This transfer ensures compliance with the regulations and safeguards the interests of investors.

To access the bank details associated with your Demat account, kindly visit https://my.geojit.com and log in using your unique login ID and password. Once logged in, navigate to the User Profile section and click on "Depository Bank Account Details" to view the registered bank information. We request you to ensure the following to avoid the transfer of shares from your Demat account to the IEPF Authority

  • Core banking account number, IFSC, and MICR of your bank account are updated in your Demat account.

  • For all the shares held by you (Demat/physical), declared dividends are received in your Bank Account.

Additionally, it is important to be aware that if your shares have already been transferred to the IEPF Authority and you wish to claim them or the associated dividends, a distinct application must be submitted to the authority using Form IEPF-5, as specified in the IEPF Rules. You can find the required form on the official website of the IEPF Authority at www.iepf.gov.in.
