Shares wont get transferred
Even if a person buys shares of a company, then these shares will not be able to transfer to the account. This will be done only after the KYC is completed and verified. Every demat account is required to KYC with 6 details, but not all demat accounts have been updated with 6 KYC norms yet. A demat/trading account holder is required to update these 6 KYC features, which includes name, address, PAN, mobile number, valid email ID, income limit. All 6-KYC norms have been made mandatory for new demat accounts opened from June 1, 2021.
