How can one dematerialize their physical shares if they cannot sign documents due to old age or health-related reasons?

Converting physical shares into demat mode requires physical signatures on forms and documents. To learn the documents required, see How to convert physical share certificates into demat form?

If documents cannot be signed due to old-age or health-related reasons, the company's Registrar & Transfer Agent (RTA) must be contacted. The contact details of the RTA can be found under the investor relations section on the company's website.

The forms and documents required may differ for each RTA. However, in general, medical certificates from a government hospital and a thumb impression of the shareholder are required by RTAs to process the dematerialisation request.
