However, this means that the shareholding has been divided into different apps, which have robbed them of the chance to view everything on an integrated platform and keep a check on their earnings through investment. But, this can be easily solved if you transfer your shares from one demat account to another online.

For this, investors will have to undertake CDSL Easiest registration. CDSL Easiest has been launched by the Central Depository Services Limited, which helps you access your demat account details easily from anywhere by making use of the CDSL website. Once you complete the CDSL Easiest registration process, you are given a login id and a password which you can use at the time of logging in.

Let us get into the details of what is CDSL Easiest and how to register for CDSL Easiest.

What is CDSL Easiest?

The full form of EASIEST is Electronic Access to Securities Information and Execution of Secured Transaction. Each time you initiate a buy or sell transaction for your shares, there are a number of intermediaries that the transaction has to go through. The first one is your DP(Depository Participant), who is also your broker, and also to the stock exchange like BSE or NSE.

Since the beginning of online trading with the help of Demat accounts, central depositories have also become a part of the process. The centralised depository keeps track of the ownership of the shares in a dematerialised setting. In India, the two main centralised depositories are NSDL and CDSL. Although a sell or buy transaction might be visible to you on your screen, the process of clearing takes about T+2 days. T refers to the day on which you initiated the transaction.

After you initiate the transaction, the following steps take place:

  • First, the transfer of shares takes place to the account of your DP.
  • Then, the clearance of funds happens from your bank account.
  • Finally, the transfer of shares to your Demat account takes place.

Sometimes, it happens that the transfer of shares to your Demat account does not take place, and the shares are kept in the pool of your DP. This means that although you have already paid for these shares, these are still not owned by you. This is where the CDSL Easiest can come to your rescue. It will help you keep a check on your Demat account details to ascertain if the trades that have been executed by you are showcasing your ownership or not. Also, with the CDSL Easiest, you can transfer your shares from one Demat account to another easily.
