3. GUIDE TO SHAREHOLDERS
Transferee(s) need to send share certificates along with share transfer deed in the prescribed form 7B, duly filled in, executed and affixed with share transfer stamps, to the Company’s R & TA. It takes about 15-20 days for the Company’s RTA to process the transfer. The Govt. of India, Ministry of Finance, Department of Revenue has fixed the stamp duty on Transfer (whether with or without consideration) of shares at the rate of twenty five (25 ) paisa for every Rs.1000 or part thereof of the market value of shares on the date of execution of the transfer deed. The transfer deed is valid for a period of one year from the date of presentation or till the book closure date, whichever is later. In case the transfer deed has expired the holder may approach the Registrar of Companies to get the same revalidated. In case of dematerialized shares, the shares are credited to the Purchaser’s account by the respective Depository Participant under the directions of the concerned depository. Presently transfer of the dematerialized shares does not attract stamp duty.
TRANSMISSION OF SHARES
Procedure for getting shares in the name of surviving shareholder
The surviving shareholder(s) will have to submit a request letter supported by an attested copy of the death certificate of the deceased shareholder and accompanied by relevant share certificate(s). The Company’s R &TA on receipt of the said documents and after due scrutiny, will delete the name of the deceased shareholder from its records and return the share certificate(s) to the surviving shareholder(s) with necessary endorsements.
If shareholder holds shares in his sole name dies without leaving a will
The legal heir(s) should obtain a Succession Certificate or Letter of Administration with respect to the shares and send a true copy of the same, duly attested, along with a request letter, transmission form, and the share certificate(s) in original, to the Company’s R & TA for transmission of the shares in his/their name(s).
If Deceased Shareholder who held shares in his single name had left a Will.
The legal heir(s) will have to get the Will probated by the Court of competent jurisdiction and then send to the Company’s R & T A a copy of the probated copy of the Will, along with relevant details of the shares, the relevant share certificate(s) in original and transmission form for transmission of the shares in his/their name(s).
Transposition refers to the change in the order of the names of the Registered Holders of shares in a Company. Share certificates along with a request letter duly signed by all Joint Holders may be sent to the Company’s R & T A for change in order of names. Transposition can be done only for the entire holdings under a folio and therefore requests for transposition of part holding cannot be accepted by the Company /R & T A. For shares held in demat form, investors are advised to approach their DP concerned for transposition of the shares of the Company.
Shareholders may write to the Company’s R & T A enclosing the relevant share certificates for splitting into smaller lots. The share certificates after splitting will be sent by the Company’s R &T A to the shareholders at their registered address.
CONSOLIDATION INTO SINGLE CERTIFICATE
Consolidation of share certificates helps in saving costs in the event of dematerializing shares and also provides convenience in holding the shares physically. Shareholders holding shares in various denominations under the same folio should send all the certificates to CB Management for consolidation of all the shares into a single certificate.
If the shares are not under the same folio but have the same order of names, the shareholder should write to CB Management for consolidation of the folios. This will help the investors to efficiently monitor the holding and receivable thereon.
DEMATERIALISATION / REMATERIALISATION OF SHARES
Dematerialization (Demat) is the process by which the securities held in physical form are cancelled and destroyed and the ownership thereof is entered into and retained in a fungible form on a depository by way of electronic balances.
The two depositories presently functioning are National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) and Central Depository Services (India) Limited (CDSL).
Steps involved in dematerialization of shares
Benefits of Demat

In the case of joint holdings of shares by individuals, nomination will be effective only in the event of the death of all joint holders. Investors who are holding shares in single name are advised to avail of the nomination facility by submitting the prescribed Form 2B to the Company’s R & TA.

a) Electronic Clearing Service (ECS) b) Payment by mailing dividend warrants
Reserve Bank of India’s ECS facility provides investors an option to receive dividend directly in their Bank Accounts rather than receiving the same through post. Under this option, the investor’s bank account is directly credited and an advice thereof is issued by the Company after the transaction is effected. The concerned Bank Branch credits Investor’s account and indicates the credit entry as ECS in his/her passbook /statement of account.
Major Benefits through ECS payment
Some of the major benefits are:
a) Shareholder need not make frequent visits to his bank for depositing the physical paper instruments
b) Prompt credit to the bank account of the investor through electronic clearing
c) Fraudulent encashment of warrants is avoided.
d) Exposure to delays /loss in postal service avoided
e) As there can be no loss in transit of warrants, issue of duplicate warrants is avoided.
How to avail of ECS facility
Investors holding shares in physical form may send their ECS Manadate Form, duly filled in to the Company’s R & T A. The form may be downloaded from the Company’s website www.centuryextrusions.com under the section Financials.

Company cannot take on record the bank details in case of the dematerialized shares
As per the Depository Regulations, the Company is obliged to pay dividend on the dematerialized shares as per the Bank Account details furnished by the concerned depository. Therefore, investors are requested to keep their Bank particulars updated with the Depository Participants.
ECS Facility can be opted out by the Investors
Investors have the right to opt out from this mode of payment by giving an advance notice of four weeks, prior to payment of dividend, either to the Company’s R & T A or to the concerned DP, as the case may be.
Registering a request for obtaining payment through ECS for the shares held in dematerialized form.
The Investors should approach the DP and submit a request letter to the DP along with a copy of the cancelled cheque of the investor’s bank account. The DP in turn will record the 9 digit MICR number along with the account particulars of the Investor. This action would facilitate future payment of dividend etc. to be received in electronic mode.
In case of Non-Receipt of Dividend, Revalidation of Dividend Warrant
Shareholders may write to the company’s R & TA furnishing the particulars of the dividend not received , and quoting the folio number/ DPID and Client ID particulars (in case of dematerialized shares). The R & T A shall check the records and send the intimation to the Secretarial Department of the Company which shall then intimate the Banker to issue pay order/cheque if the dividend remains unpaid in the records of the Company after expiry of the validity period of the warrant which is normally three to six months from the date of its issue. If the validity period of the lost dividend warrant has not expired, shareholders will have to wait till the expiry date since pay order/cheque cannot be issued during validity of the original warrant On expiry of the validity period ,if the dividend warrant is still shown as unpaid in records of the Company , pay order/cheque will be issued. However, no such pay order or cheque shall be issued against those shares wherein a ‘stop transfer indicator’ has been instituted either by virtue of a complaint or by law, unless procedure for releasing the same has been completed.

This shall be valid for not more than three months.
Banks or any other person shall be authorized to receive dividends on behalf of the shareholders
