Transmission of shares The ownership of the shares is transferred from the shareholder, who is the original owner, to the claimant or legal heir under the term "transmission of shares." This can happen for a variety of legal reasons, including death, insolvency, insanity, marriage, and insanity. The legal heir must submit a request for the transfer of shares along with a number of supporting documents, including a certified copy of the shareholder's death certificate, a letter of administration, a probate of the will, a certificate of succession, a sample of the legal heir's or successor's signature, and a self-attested copy of the PAN, in order to start the transfer process. Transfer of Shares When the original shareholder voluntarily transfers their shares to the transferee for money. The transfer of shares takes place. Once the transfer is finished and ownership is transferred to the transferee using a transfer deed, the obligation of the transferor or the original shareholder ends. Dividend Recovery A dividend is a percentage of a company's earnings that the board of directors decides to pay to shareholders as cash, shares, or another form. The payout is transferred to the IEPF as an unclaimed dividend if it is unclaimed for seven years. In order to help our customers collect unclaimed earnings from the IEPF without encountering any legal issues, our staff provides competent guidance. This is crucial in situations when the assets were left unclaimed because a share transfer or transmission was improperly executed, shareholder records were inaccurate, or bonus shares were never claimed.
