How to get dividend of a Company

Mostly Indian Companies announce their dividends in Feb/Mar and Aug/Sep of every year, Please mention the steps/prerequisites to get those dividends.

Already I bought, shares (CNC) of a few companies in January end, and then later company announced their dividend in Feb first week, am I eligible for such dividends?

Buy the stock before the Ex Dividend date to be eligible for receiving dividends.

In your case, you will receive the dividend by way of electronic credit to the bank account mapped to the demat account.
