An Overview of Recovery of TCS Shares IEPF In 1968, Tata Computer Systems (TCS) was established. The business opened a software research and development centre in Pune, India, in 1980. When the IPO was issued in August 2004, and the business was listed on the NSE and BSE, TCS's journey in the stock market officially began. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is India's second most valuable corporation. It is the nation's most well-known information technology company and the Tata Group's most lucrative business. In addition to these accomplishments, TCS has given thousands of people jobs inside and outside India. When a business succeeds rapidly, stockholders also stand to gain significantly. Since its IPO in 2004, the TCS Share Price has grown 29 times. In the previous ten years, TCS has distributed dividends worth over 500 rupees for each share. Over the past 15 years, the average returns have been substantially increased. Significance of IEPF The Indian government established the IEPF, or Investor Education and Protection Fund, to safeguard investor interests and advance investor education. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and other financial market segments benefit greatly. The IEPF was established by the Companies Act of 2013 to ensure that unclaimed dividends, matured deposits, and other investor monies are safeguarded and used to their advantage. Unclaimed monies are transferred to the IEPF when shareholders of a corporation fail to collect their entitlements, such as dividends, within a given time frame. If there are any unclaimed dividends or other rights about TCS shares, they may be given to the IEPF. Such transfers become available to shareholders who have not been available for seven years without claiming dividends or other perks. The IEPF then retains these monies on behalf of the shareholders, and within a given time frame, the shareholders can recover their dues from the IEPF. The value of IEPF in TCS shares is derived from its responsibility to safeguard shareholders' unclaimed cash and the interests of shareholders. The government intends to avoid the loss or abuse of these assets and ease their eventual restoration to the legitimate shareholders by transferring unclaimed dividends to the IEPF. It is to make sure the shareholders may receive their legitimate benefits; individuals should be aware of the steps and deadlines for filing their claims with the IEPF. For thorough and accurate information on IEPF-related concerns, it is advised to examine the IEPF's official website and stay in touch with the company's investor relations department or Registrar. The Procedure for Recovering TCS Shares from IEPF Shareholders of the company whose shares, unclaimed or unpaid dividend amount has been transferred by the company to IEPF Authority under section 124 of the Companies Act, 2013 may claim shares or unclaimed dividend amount from IEPF Authority.
