The Investor Education and Protection Fund, was established by the Indian government to advance investor knowledge and safeguard their interests. To allow investors to get their full entitlements, companies must transfer unclaimed dividends, matured deposits, and similar assets to the IEPF after a predetermined time. The IEPF uses these funds to educate investors, assist them in making wise investment choices, and compensate people who have lost money due to unscrupulous business practices by corporations or their representatives. When shall the Company not transfer the shares to the Investors Education and Protection Fund? The terms under which the Company will not transfer shares to the IEPF have been outlined. The shares do not have to be transferred to the IEPF if a shareholder received dividend payments during the previous seven years, even if they did not cash all of the dividend warrants. The Company cannot transfer shares to the IEPF if there is an order from a court, tribunal, or statutory Authority prohibiting the transfer of shares or if the shares have already been pledged, hypothecated, or transferred in accordance with the provisions of the Depositories Act, 1996. Instead, the business must use Form No. IEPF 3 is to inform the Authority of the existence of such shares and any unpaid dividends within 30 days after the end of the fiscal year. Penalty for contravention of section 124 A company shall be fined one lakh rupees if it violates any of the conditions outlined in this section. If the failure persists, an additional fine of 500 rupees per day, up to a maximum of ten lakh rupees, would be imposed. Any officer of the Company who is accountable for the default will also face a fine of 25,000 rupees in addition to this punishment. If the failure persists, an additional fine of 100 rupees per day, up to a maximum of 2 lakh rupees, would be imposed.

It can happen through succession, which occurs when the firm registers shares owned by a deceased or insolvent individual in the name of their rightful heirs following evidence of death or insolvency. This is known as the transfer of shares, and it occurs when a registered member dies, is declared bankrupt, or is declared insane by a competent court. Transmission of shares by operation of law, unlike a transfer of shares, does not need the signing and filing of a transfer document. Transfer of shares The act of transferring ownership of shares from one to another is known as share transfer. When investors buy and trade shares of companies that are traded on the stock market, this transaction occurs often. A private agreement involving the buyer and seller or a stock exchange can be used to transfer shares. The seller must notify the firm and modify the register of shares with the buyer's details to complete the transfer. The seller passes over the share certificate once the buyer has paid the purchase price. To guarantee the transfer of shares is lawful, it is critical to complete all legal requirements and comply with all laws and regulations regulating the transfer of securities.

If the award remains unclaimed for seven years, it is remitted to the IEPF as unclaimed dividends. Our team provides expert advice to customers in order to assist them in claiming unclaimed funds from the IEPF while avoiding any legal complications. This is particularly essential when the assets were left unclaimed owing to an illegally conducted share transfer or transmission, faulty shareholder records, or unclaimed bonus shares.
