How can I collect dividends on my shares?
Stock dividends (bonus shares): The issuing company will credit your Investor Account/Sub-Account with the CDS by the number of shares you are entitled to.
Cash dividends: The issuing company will dispatch the dividend warrant directly to your mailing address provided in the CDS Investor Account/Sub-Account opening form. Alternatively, if you have an arrangement with a bank providing custodial services, you can also give a mandate to that custodial bank to collect dividends on your behalf. You will need to complete the relevant sections of the Account Opening Form for Sub-Account in CDS for this purpose.
How do I apply for Right shares?
If you are eligible for right shares, the company/registrar will mail you a Right allotment letter at the mailing address indicated by you. You will then be required to deposit the Right allotment letter at your Bank. The Bank will debit the amount against the subscription of the right shares from the bank account.
