The same way, you would find for Takeover and Delisting offers)
- Click on Buy back button and confirm the quantity you would like to bid in buy back offer.
- Click on Submit.
- Please read the “Note” mentioned above the submit button, for your knowledge.
Once we receive your request, your bid shall be placed on any date before the public offer end date. After the bid is successful from our side, you shall receive a TRS (Transaction Registration Slip) copy on your registered email for the bid confirmation.
After company receives your bid, it shall take 8-10 days from the offer end date to authorize your bid. In case the company accepts your request then you shall receive the payment to your registered bank account with us. If your order is rejected then the stock shall be seen in the holdings on the next day.
- Buy back / Takeover / Delisting window will close 1 trading day prior (at 6:30 pm) to the offer end date.
- In case you have pledged the shares as a collateral then you will need to un-pledge it first for applying the any offer.
- You need to compulsorily submit online DDPI form through BOX for applying buyback, takeover, delisting etc.
- If we continue accepting your request till end date, there could be possibility that, client may sell the shares on end date. After selling, the shares shall be removed from the demat. Therefore shares will not be available for the bidding which may create confusion.
- Also, as per our operational procedure, client’s holdings are updated in the trading software once in a day before market is opened. Accepting buy the request on end date (after holdings are updated in the trading software) shall disturb the entire operational procedure which may lead to inconvenience in trading. To avoid any inconvenience and to better your experience, request shall not be accepted on end date.
