What is CDSL easiest?

CDSL’s internet-based facility easiest (electronic access to securities information and execution of secured transactions), permits Clearing Members of Beneficial Owner (clients) to submit off-market, on-market, inter-depository and early pay-in debit instructions from their DEMAT account. Moreover, all the facilities and benefits of easi are automatically made available to a subscriber of easiest.

With CDSL easiest you can transfer shares from one DEMAT account to another online. However, we at Zerodha, recommend using DIS (delivery instruction slips) for share transfers. When you register for easiest, the broker loses the POA over your DEMAT which would mean that you cannot sell shares from your holdings using your trading platform because the broker will no longer be able to debit your shares from Demat. You will now have the POA over Demat as a result of which you will be able to transfer shares using easiest, but this will be a hassle for you in many ways, not advisable. DIS is best for share transfers.
