After you have sold the securities, you would instruct your DP to debit your account with the number of securities sold by you and credit your broker's clearing account.

The procedure for selling securities is given here below:

    • You sell securities in any of the stock exchanges linked to NSDL through a broker.
    • You give instructions to your DP to debit his account and credit the broker's (clearing member pool) account.

  • What is the 'execution date' given in the delivery instruction form?

    The execution date is the date on which securities will be actually debited from your account.

  • What is the importance of ‘record dates’ to me?

    In case the securities bought by you are yet to be transferred into your account by your broker before the book closure/record date, you will not be entitled to receive corporate benefits such as dividend or bonus since your name will not figure in the list of beneficial owners. Hence, you must ensure that securities bought by you are transferred into your account before the book closure/record date announced by the company.

  • Options
    • An Option offers the buyer/holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a specified amount of the underlying asset at an agreed rate on or before a specified future date. This arrangement, by natural extension, puts the obligation, not the right, to buy or sell the underlying asset at the pre-determined price at a specified future date. For the right to exercise the option, the buyer pays the seller/writer a premium, which is called the option price.
    • Option may either be a Call Option or a put option. Under the Call Option, the buyer has the right to buy the underlying asset whereas, under the Put Option the buyer enjoys the right to sell the underlying asset.
    • Among the various types of Options are the Interest Rate Options (Bonds Option, caps, Floors, Collars etc.) and Currency Options. Interest Rate Option offers the buyer the right, not the obligation, to fix at a point of time in the future, either the interest rate on a notional deposit or loan or the price of an instrument. With such instruments, buyer is protected against an adverse interest rate movement while retaining the ability to benefit from a favourable movement. A Currency Option gives the buyer the right, not the obligation, to exchange two currencies at a fixed rate at a future point of time. Under this type of Option buyer's downside risk is eliminated while retaining the unlimited upside potential.
