Sebi extends deadline for demat and mutual fund nomination

Capital markets regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) on Wednesday extended the deadline for demat and mutual fund account holders to provide a nomination. As per the market regulator, the deadline has now been extended to 30 June 2024. 

Earlier, the deadline to nominate a beneficiary or opt out of it by submitting a declaration form was December 31, 2023. Prior to this, on 26 September, SEBI had extended the deadline to 31 December.

The move is aimed at helping investors to secure their assets and pass them on to their legal heirs.

"Based on representations received from the market participants, for ease of compliance and investor convenience, it has been decided to extend the last date for submission of 'choice of nomination' for demat accounts and mutual fund folios to June 30, 2024," the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) said in a circular.

Further, SEBI asked asset management companies (AMCs), depository participants and Registrar and Transfer Agents (RTAs) to encourage the demat account holders and mutual fund unit holders to fulfil the requirement for nomination/opting out of nomination by sending a communication on fortnightly basis by way of emails and SMS to all such unit holders who are not in compliance with the requirement of nomination. 

The communication should provide guidance to provide nomination or opt out of nomination.
