The surviving shareholders are required to submit a request letter supported by a self attested copy of pan card of all surviving holders, an attested copy of the Death Certificate of the deceased shareholder and the relevant share certificates. It is advisable if the documents are accompanied by a duly executed Transmission Form.The form is available for download on the website.The request letter duly completed and signed by the survivors, as per the specimen signatures registered with Karvy so that the name of the deceased can be deleted from the Company's records as well as from the certificates.

Attestation on the death certificate should be done by a First Class Magistrate, Gazetted Officer and the Notary Public under his official seal stating full name, address, and registration no. (in case of notary public).

The Company, on receipt of the said documents, will delete the name of deceased shareholder from its records and return the share certificates to the applicant/registered holder with the necessary endorsement.

For securities held in electronic form, please contact your depository participant.

Note: As per SEBI Circular dated October 28, 2013, the timeline for processing the transmission requests by the DP for securities held in dematerialized form is 7 days and by the Company/R&TA for the securities held in physical form shall be 21 days, after receipt of the prescribed documents from the claimants/legal heirs.
