The use of DDPI will be limited only for two purposes:

  • To transfer securities held in your account towards stock exchange related deliveries or settlement obligations
  • To pledge/re-pledge securities

Post DDPI, please follow the below guidelines for authorization of other transactions:

  • For any Corporate Actions (Buyback, Takeovers, Delisting, etc) – you will need to complete the settlement via e-DIS
