When I will get e-CAS via e-mail?
As per SEBI guidelines, if there is any transaction in any of the demat accounts of an investor or any of his/her mutual fund folios, then CAS will be sent to the investor in the next month in respect of transactions executed in a previous month along with the holdings. Hence, if the investor has done transaction(s) in every month, then he/she will get CAS every month. However, in case there is no transaction in any of the mutual fund’s folios and demat accounts in any month of the year, then CAS withholding details will be sent to the investor on a half-yearly basis.
Which Asset Classes are included in NSDL CAS?
NSDL CAS includes asset classes such as Equities, Warrants, Preference Shares, Mutual Fund units held in demat form, Corporate Bonds, Money Market Instruments, Securitized Instruments, Government Securities, Postal Saving Schemes held in demat form, MF units held in SOA form in Mutual Fund Folios, etc.
If I have multiple Demat accounts which depository CAS would be sent?
n case investors have multiple demat accounts across the two depositories (i.e. with NSDL and CDSL), the depository having the demat account which has been opened earlier shall be the default depository. Investors can ask NSDL or CDSL to make changes to the default depository.
