To Study the relationship between Physical share and Dematerialized shares To understand the process of Dematerialization & it’s necessity. it is very necessary to understand the mechanism that facilitates it. To understand the process of transfer of shares.

Problem of the Study:• • Need for Dematerialization of Share What is the difference Between Physical Share & Dematerialized Share? • • • • • • How the dematerialization of share is done? What are the effects on financial market by dematerialization? Who are the Depository participants? What are the Function of Depository participant & how they are operating? Which way Customers are attracted towards Depositary participant? How is the Demat accounts handled? .

• • • • . So in this project we had tried to understand the Dematerialisation of share in India how it operates & how the public is attracted towards this source of income. Instead of several months. ownership is supposed to change hands instantly.Scope of the Study:• The tedious process of physically transferring ownership of shares is shortened. The chance of a bad transfer because a signature doesn't match is reduced to zero. So are the opportunities of thievery in the mail or forged share certificates. No wonder when SEBI initiated the process of demat it was welcomed wholeheartedly by most investors. The twin problems of odd lots and jumbo lots both disappear since it is possible to trade either a single demat share or any Number of share at any point of time. So demat solves various familiar problems that plague every stock market that operates with physical paper.

I will also gain some important knowledge about the fundamentals of the system by referring to NSDL & CSDL Website .

Hypothesis Testing • Null Hypothesis:• Dematerialization is better than Physical Shares • Alternative Hypothesis:• Physical Shares is better than Dematerialization .
