In case of the death of the sole holder, for the purpose of transmission of securities, the nominee has to submit a duly filled-in transmission form, notarized copy of death certificate and an affidavit in the prescribed format to the DP. After verifying these documents and, if found in order, the DP will transmit the securities to the account of the nominee. Transmission happens through operation of law and does not require any action other than filling up the form and furnishing the details and the documentation.
