I hold stocks of a company that issued dividends, how and when will I get the dividends?

To be eligible for dividends, you need to be holding the stock in your demat account on the record date of the dividend issue. You should have bought the stock at least one day before the ex-date so that the stocks are delivered in your demat account by the record date. See What does the ex-date and the record date mean?

If you are eligible, the dividends get directly credited to your primary bank account linked to your Zerodha account on the dividend payment date, typically 30 to 45 days after the record date. See Where can I track dividends of my stock holdings?

How to check dividend ex-dates?
