In the meeting held between SEBI, Depositories and Stock Exchanges on April 6, 2009, it was decided that SMS Alertsshould be made mandatory for accounts operated by Power of Attorney (POA). Thus, w.e.f. June 1, 2009, SMS Alert facility is mandatory with respect to:

  • new depository accounts with POA; and
  • existing depository accounts (in case the accountholders opt for POA in future).

The existing accountholders whose accounts are operated by POA are required to provide the mobile numbers and subscribe for SMS Alert facility by October 31, 2009.

The accountholders in above cases will have to provide the mobile numbers to the Participants and subscribe for SMS Alert facility. In case the accountholder does not have a mobile phone, he/she may provide mobile number of any person as per his / her discretion.

SMS Alert facility will not be mandatory for the accounts held by non-individuals, NRIs and foreign nationals until further advice from SEBI as NSDL has referred the matter to SEBI.

SEBI has already permitted use of web camera for in-person verifi cation (IPV) at the time of opening depository accounts at the branch/franchisee offi ces of the Participants subject to compliance with other SEBI guidelines/circulars relating to opening of depository accounts including verifi cation of documents. To facilitate the use of web camera for IPV for opening depository accounts, a few procedural changes have been made as follows:
