Why are the shares acquired from ESOP not visible under holdings on Kite?
The shares obtained through ESOP (Employee Stock Options) may not be visible under holdings on Kite due to a lock-in period imposed on them. During this duration, selling or transferring the shares is restricted. Nevertheless, the shares are still held in the shareholder's demat account. To verify and reconcile the holdings, refer to the demat holding statement (Statement of Transaction) where the shares will be listed.
