SMS Alert facility for NSDL demat account holders
NSDL has launched SMS Alert facility for demat account holders whereby investors can receive alerts for debits (transfers) to their demat accounts, credits for IPO and offer for sale allotment, sub-division and bonus. Alerts are also sent in case the instructions given by investors for debiting their demat accounts fail due to insufficient balance. Under this facility, investors can receive alerts, a day after such debits (transfers) take place or debit instruction failing as the case may be and on the same day when such credits take place. These alerts are sent to those account holders who have provided their mobile numbers to their Depository Participants (DPs). Alerts for debits are sent, if the debits (transfers) are up to five ISINs in a day. In case debits (transfers) are for more than five ISINs, alerts are sent with a message that debits for more than five ISINs have taken place and that the investor can check the details with the DP or on IDeAS website, if the investor is an IDeAS subscriber.
1. Investors will get to know about debits and credits for IPO and offer for sale allotment, sub-division, bonus and failed debit instructions due to insufficient balance without having to call-up their DPs.
2. Investors need not wait for receiving Transaction Statements from DPs to know about such debits and credits.
3. In case of any discrepancy, the investor can approach its DP for clarification sooner.
No charge is levied by NSDL on DPs for providing this facility to investors.
This facility is available to investors who request for such a facility and provide their mobile numbers to the DPs. In case mobile numbers already given have changed, investors need to inform their DPs about the new numbers by way of written requests. Investors who have not yet provided their mobile numbers to their DPs can also avail this facility by intimating their mobile numbers to their DPs and submit a written request for this facility. This facility is not available to investors who have registered mobile numbers originating outside India.
Thus, this facility will be available to the investors provided they have given their mobile numbers to their DPs and the DPs have captured the numbers in the computer system and have also enabled (ticked) the SMS flag in their system.
The investors may contact their respective DPs in case they do not receive SMS alert inspite of registering for this facility. Those investors who have provided their mobile numbers to their DPs but do not wish to avail this facility may also inform their DPs.
