How to get a Delivery Instruction Slip (DIS) booklet?

The DIS method of transferring securities involves receiving and sending physical copies of the DIS. Instead, CDSL easiest can be used to transfer shares online. See What are the different ways to transfer shares from a Zerodha demat account to another demat account?

A DIS request form (PDF) must be submitted to receive the DIS booklet. The DIS booklet will be couriered within 48 hours of receiving the request.

The instructions to fill out the DIS request form are as follows:

  • Client ID: Enter the BO ID. See, What are DP name, DP ID, BO ID and demat ID?

  • Collection instructions:

    • Collected by hand: Select this if the client visits the Zerodha head office to collect the DIS booklet. A self-attested copy of the ID proof and the DIS request form must be submitted.

    • Additional Booklet: If an additional booklet is needed by a client who has lost Annexure B attached to the existing DIS booklet, this option should be selected. However, if the client has Annexure B, selecting this option is unnecessary, and the additional booklet can be obtained by sending Annexure B to the head office.

      • Not required to cancel unused slips: This option should be selected if the existing DIS slips are not to be cancelled. In such a case, create a ticket to confirm.

      • Required to cancel unused slips: This option should be selected if the existing DIS slips are to be cancelled. The slip number needs to be mentioned by the client and tick any one of the options, i.e., Lost, Misplaced, or Others (the reason should be mentioned if Others is selected).

    • To Cancel DIS slips/book: This option should be selected to cancel the DIS slips without requiring extra booklets.

    • By Authorized Representative: This option must be selected if a representative visits the head office instead of the account holder(s) to collect the DIS booklet.  In such a case, the authorised representative must submit the DIS request form and the ID proof, both signed by all the account holder(s). This also applies to non-individual account holders.

    • Correspondence address: This option must be selected if a client is applying for a new DIS booklet and wants it delivered to their address by Zerodha. DIS booklet will only be sent to the account holder's communication address registered with Zerodha.
