I have already produced the attested/registered will. Since getting it probated would take a long time and money, can I avoid that procedure? 2017-01-30T15:34:50+00:00

You will appreciate that in order to ascertain that the will in question is the last will and testament made by the deceased, it is important that the same is authenticated/ probated by the Court. This is to protect the interest of the investors at large and to obviate any future claims/disputes on the same.

Can a Shareholder nominate more than one person to hold shares jointly in the event of his demise? 2017-01-30T15:23:12+00:00

Section 109A(1) provides for the nomination of “a person”, Form 2B prescribed for nomination requires the “name and address of the nominee”. The view is that only one nomination is allowed to be made per folio. However if the shareholders/debenture holders hold in more than one folio but in different order of names or hold in joint names in more than one folio in different combination of names, then they can appoint different nominees under each folio.

For example, if shareholder “A” and “B” jointly hold 100 shares, they can together appoint one nominee. However, if 50 shares are held jointly in the names of A and B respectively and further 50 shares in the names of B and A respectively, they can appoint two different nominees for their holdings of 50 shares each.

How can you make a nomination? 2017-01-30T15:22:45+00:00

You can make a nomination by filling in and sending Form 2B singly if you are a sole holder or jointly if you are joint holders to our R & ST Agent, M/s RCMC Share Registry Private Ltd.*. After verifying your signatures your nomination would be registered and an intimation of the same would be sent to you, which you are requested to preserve. Q. Who can make a nomination?

Non-individuals including a society, trust, body corporate, partnership firm, karta of Hindu Undivided Family and holder of Power of Attorney cannot nominate.
