What other problems does demat help resolve?

Demat has avoided risk of signature mismatch and share mutilation. This was the big risk for share buyers in the old days. They would send the certificates to the registrar along with the transfer deed and then realize that the transfer got rejected due to signature mismatch. Alternatively, the certificate would get mutilated in transit and hence get rejected. This delayed the transfer process substantially. Quite often the share certificates would get rejected for very small reasons like spelling mistakes, mismatch in the number of shares in figures and words etc. Demat has overcome that!
