Why am I not able to see the shares I’ve purchased?

The following are the reasons why you may not be seeing the shares you’ve purchased:

The shares that you have bought are delisted: ` ”Delisting” of a security or a stock means removing shares of a listed company from the stock exchange. The company may no longer be traded in that exchange due to de-listing.

As a result, you will not be able to see your stocks. These stocks will not be visible in Kite; you can view the same on the console . You can check this article for more information.

Your stocks are short delivered: When you are the buyer of a stock, there is a chance of the seller defaulting on the delivery of the share. In such circumstances, the exchange holds an auction for the same quantity of shares & delivers it to the buyer.

Short delivery can happen in stocks with less liquidity or if a short MIS/BO/CO hasn’t been squared off in some circumstances. In this case, we will notify you via SMS and email. ( Click here to know more about short delivery)

Shares transferred to other Demat account or gifting: On successful gifting or transfer of shares from your account to another, the stocks won’t reflect in your account.
