Based on SEBIs advise, NSDL has made certain changes pertaining to nomination in the account opening form (AOF). Accordingly, for new accounts, the applicant has to mandatorily mention either the nomination details or state that I/We do not wish to make a nomination. For existing accounts where nomination is not done, NSDL has advised its Participants to send a communication to their Clients to either provide nomination details or to submit a declaration not opting for nomination.

NSDL has informed its Participants that they may use the existing stock of AOFs provided a stamp with the words I/We do not wish to make a nomination is affi xed at the relevant place to enable the Client to tick the appropriate option. Alternatively, Participants may obtain a separate letter from Client(s) stating that they do not wish to make a nomination, if the Client(s) so desires.
