How do we transfer shares from one demat account to another?


Shares and debentures in your demat account can be transferred to another demat account by issuing appropriate instructions to your depository participant (DP) through delivery instruction slip (DIS). If you sell your securities through the stock exchange, you will instruct your DP to transfer shares from your demat account to the brokers’ pool account. In case of off market transaction, you will instruct your DP to transfer to the concerned buyer’s demat account.

Similarly, securities can be transferred to your demat account by the instruction of the seller (transferor) to his DP. The seller will have to mention your demat account number in the DIS (delivery instruction slip).

The DIS (delivery instruction slip) book is similar to a cheque book and it needs to be handled with the same care as a cheque book. Accordingly, you will always store the DIS book in a safe place in your custody and not hand over signed blank DIS to anybody


Whenever you wanted to transfer your shares from DP to another, the delivery instruction slip (DIS) book is mandatory

suppose if you have an demat account with “X” broker those shares you willing to transfer to “Z” broker, you need to visit the X office with DIS book in that slip you have to fill the your shares details along with isin number & Z broker DP id also, it will take maximum 24 hours to transfer, for transferring of shares broker’s may charge for this
