Why are gifted stocks not visible in holdings?

Gifted stocks may not be visible in the holdings due to the following reasons:

  • The sender of the gift has not completed the CDSL OTP verification .

The CDSL OTP verification needs to be completed in order for the gift to be successful. See How do I generate the CDSL TPIN required to authorise my CNC sell transactions? If multiple stocks are being gifted, the CDSL OTP verification has to be completed for each stock. If some stocks are not transferred, in the case of gifts with multiple stocks, the sender has to re-authorise the stocks that were missed.

  • The sender has completed the CDSL OTP verification after the cut-off time of 8 PM.

If the verification is done post 8 PM, the gift request has to be created again.

  • The sender is trying to gift stocks under the lock-in or freeze period.

Stocks under lock-in or freeze status cannot be gifted. See What does Lock-in period mean? and How can I freeze the stocks in my demat account?
