The Certification Program

NSDL is committed to provide best service to investors and recognises that quantitative progress is ineffective if not backed by quality services. It is, therefore, necessary that the staff of our business partners are sensitised to service standards and efficient depository operations.

Towards this objective, NSDL has launched Certification Programme on depository. This programme helps the candidate to understand and assimilate the procedures to be followed in conducting various transactions in the NSDL depository system. NSDL has made it mandatory for all branches of Depository Participants (DPs) to have atleast one person qualified in the Certification Programme. For the benefit of the staff of the DPs, NSDL conducts training programmes which cover all aspects of depository services.

NSDL is using the National Stock Exchange of India Limited's (NSEIL) Certification in Financial Markets (NCFM) infrastructure for conducting the "NSDL-Depository Operations Module". NSE's Certification in Financial Markets (NCFM) is an on-line testing system. The entire process of testing, assessing and scores reporting in the NCFM is fully automated. The test is conducted on weekdays at all six NSE offices. (At Mumbai, tests are conducted on Saturdays also). In addition, the tests are conducted on any day at any location in India through Internet if there is adequate demand for the same.
