Depository Services

Depository Services

A depository refers to any organization where the stocks are held in electronic or dematerialized (demat) form, e.g. CDSL and NSDL. Meanwhile, a Depository Participant (DP) is one that holds an investor's records in a demat form. Securities purchased are credited and the securities sold are debited in your demat account /beneficiary owner account, by the DP. All the information regarding the holding of your stock is maintained by the DP. Sykes & Ray Equities is registered as a Depository Participant with the Central Depository Services Ltd (CDSL).
