Section 124 (5) of the Companies Act, 2013 states that if the dividend remains unclaimed/unpaid for 7 years, it is transferred to IEPF.

The purpose of forming such IEPF authority is to save the interest of common investors who sometimes due to name change/address change would not able to get his/her dues from the company. The authority keeps these shares in their Demat account until someone comes and claim it. The company before transferring the shares to the IEPF authority must contact all the investors by email/phone so that they can come and claim their due. However, even after sending such correspondence if nobody turns up the shares/dividend get transferred to IEPF Claim authority.

So let us know how IEPF claim gets settled with the IEPF Authority?

To get IEPF Claim, you must first have a Demat account. If you do not have it, then, first of all, open a Demat account because IEPF claim is directly transferred to the Demat account only.

    I have 50 shares of ITC in physical form in the name of my father which he bought in 1992. However, in the year 2000, he transferred the shares to my name but I was not aware as I was a child at that time. Lately, I came to know about these shares and from Google I found that my shares had gone into IEPF and I had to contact the IEPF authority for getting my shares. After inquiring about IEPF claim from my family friends, I have come to this platform. Please contact me and send me the procedure to recover my shares from IEPF. Waiting for your response.
