For the purpose of transmission of securities, individual Beneficial Owner [BO] account holder(s) have an option to either avail the nomination facility by providing the nominee details in Annexure J/JA or provide a declaration that they do not wish to make a nomination with regard to the securities held in the BO account.

In few cases the BO account holder(s) may have provided the nominee details in the format prior to the introduction of Annexure JA at the time of opening of the BO account or subsequently but due to circumstances beyond the control of BO(s), the information in the specified new format (i.e. including photograph and signature of nominee) may not have reached the Participant before the demise of the BO account holder(s). In such cases, Participants may, on receipt of the indemnity as per the specified format along with the relevant documents, process the transmission requests after satisfying themselves about the identity of the nominee.
