PAN Card related FAQs

With different name and signature on PAN card how can I do dematerialize my shares?

A PAN card with an English signature was issued to me. Due to frequent complaints about signature mismatch, I later changed it to Hindi. I also did a small verification of my pan name. New PAN Card now has Hindi sign, changed name and issued under the same pan number. However, I had previously purchased shares of xyz using my old pan details. Now, I cannot dematerialize my shares. What can I do now?

My grandfather bought physical share certificates for my mom before she got married. How can I convert these shares to demat? The physical shares were purchased by my grandfather before my mom was married.


If your shares are in physical certificates, and the name of the certificate is not the same as your current name; you should contact the company to have it changed as soon as possible.

How to change the name of the share certificate

  1. For the exact procedure, contact the company by sending a message or calling the compliance officer.
  2. Contact the registrar for the company.
  3. To record a change of name, fill out the application form . The new signature must be added to the amended name.
  4. Send shares certificates that cover the entire holding.
  5. Send one of these attested copies of the documents:
    • Certificate of Marriage
    • Gazette Notification
    • Order of the Court


  • Each case is unique so it is a good idea to ask the registrar for the required documents and samples forms.
  • For future reference, keep the application and certificate of share with you.
