What is the procedure to dematerialize bonds?

Presently we allow dematerialization of the bonds & debentures trading in the secondary market. 

You have to place a de-materialization request by raising a ticket below, which needs to be approved by the RTA. Once we get the RTA approval we will go ahead with the dematerialization process.

To dematerialize your physical Bond certificates you'll have to submit :

1. Three copies of dematerialization request form for each scrip/company (3 DRFs will be sufficient for up to 4 bond certificates of the same company. In case you have more than 4 certificates then you will have to submit an extra DRF). You will have to check on 'Bond' option on the 'Type of security'

2. DRF (Dematerialization Request form) should be signed in the ‘Signature with DP’ and ‘Signature with RTA/Issuer’ fields and also mention the Client ID (If It is a joint account then both the holders need to sign).

3. The original bond certificates should be submitted along with the DRFs. (You can keep a photocopy with you).

4. A self-attested copy of your PAN.

You have to send the above to our head office address:

Zerodha HO [#153/154 4th Cross Dollars Colony,
Opp. Clarence Public School,
J.P Nagar 4th Phase, Bangalore - 560078]

Once you submit the above, the RTA (Registrar And Share Transfer Agent) will take up to 25 days to complete the dematerialization process.

Note - The name on the bond certificate should match the name on the DEMAT account. You will be charged Rs 150 + Rs 100 courier charges for dematerialization. Click here to see the tariff sheet.
