Of course, you are the owner of the shares. Shares are with depositories and there is an audit trail. This is a major advantage of demat. When you open a demat account with your depository participant (DP), the shares are actually held by the national depository; NSDL or CDSL. Since both are institution sponsored bodies, your ownership is absolutely safe. Every transaction in each and every ISIN has a full audit trail and the risks are reduced to almost nil.
