Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the steps to transfer shares physically?

Delivery of possession is a method to transfer ownership of shares and stock., but there is a contractual relationship between the members and the company. share transfers to the transferee, assigns Contractual relationship which needs an instrument of transfer. Transferring a share involves a series of steps, first an agreement to sell (Share Transfer Deed), then executing a deed of transfer, and finally registering the transfer.

Transfer Deed

A share transfer deed is an instrument of transfer that both transferor and transferee must execute. Share transfer deed must be duly stamped and delivered to the company along with a certificate relating to shares transferred. The company cannot accept any instrument of transfer that is not in conformity with these provisions. With the help of Form "SH-4" Share transfer in physical mode is executed.


Companies often send acknowledgement of instrument to transferor who has lodged transfer with company before scrutinizing the documents. The notice of acknowledgement is usually in the form of a letter that holds a checklist for scrutiny of the transfer documents. Some companies follow the practice of issuing transfer receipt. Suppose the transfer application is made by the transferor alone and he has partly paid for the shares. In that case, the company must not register the transfer unless the company acknowledges the transferee. He does not have any objection to transferring the shares within two weeks from the receipt of the notice. There is no statutory obligation on company to give notice to the transferor when the transferee lodges the transfer documents.


Upon receipt of all the transfer documents, we do scrutiny to ensure that all the documents are in place. We conduct scrutiny within 3 to 5 days from the receipt of the transfer documents. In case the documents are not acceptable, it's returned to the transferee. If the transferor's signature in the transfer instrument differs from the specimen signature on the company's record, then we return the document.


Registration of share transfer is a requirement for the transferee to obtain the status of a member of the company. A transfer is incomplete without registration of share transfer. A share transfer form is a document through which the transferee agrees to accept the shares. Share transfer becomes a legal contract with the company. Once the company approves and registers the transfer, this leads to the entry of the transferee’s name in the member's registry, and it qualifies his status as a member. The maintenance of the register of transfer is not a statutory requirement.


Every transfer of shares must be placed before the Board of Directors or committee for its approval. The registration takes place after approval. If everything is accepted after scrutiny, & right authority should approve it. The board must approve transfer of shares. Suppose articles of the company empower the board to delegate its power of approval of share transfer. In that case, it may delegate it to a committee that might not be the company’s directors.
