What is the procedure for getting revalidation for the expired dividend warrants?

The validity of the cheques, interest warrants and dividend warrants is three months only and you cannot encash the dividend warrants at present with the banks.
You do the following two activities:
  • Provide your bank account number, name of the bank, branch, IFSC code etc. to the depository (Bank branch maintaining your demat account). Once the details are recorded in their records, further dividends will be credited to your account through ECS facility and you will be getting information about such credits
  • For the expired dividend warrants - segregate them company wise. Take photocopies for all dividend warrants. For each company (Their registered office or investor relation centre) write a letter thereby furnishing the details of expired dividend warrants and request them to revalidate those dividend warrants. The company/investor relation centre will revalidate those dividend warrans and return them back to you and immediately deposit those dividend warrants with your banker. This is the only way by which you can get your entire amount of Rs. 10000.00; however, you have to spend at least Rs. 200 for sending the dividend warrants by registered post/courier to the companies. You have to prepare the letters and send them by post. Keep the copies of those letters along with copies of dividend warrants safely with you till such time the issue is settled.
  • The following is the format of letter which you can make use for sending your expired dividend warrants to the companies
