  6. I have misplaced my share certificates so don't have folio number, distinctive number etc. I have few but not all. Will the Company be able to locate all my shares without my providing all folio/distinctive number?

    1. Yes, they should cooperate with you if you write to them about the missing share certificates. In your letter to the company - provide the details of the share certificates available with you and mention very clearly that there are some more shares whose certificates are lost. Mention all the details possible about you (the shareholder) - like name, registered address, etc. so that it helps them to track your info easily. Do mention about the missing share certificates in bold and underlined words so that it doesn't get ignored. And ask for guidance about the next steps. They'll provide info on the procedure and documents requirement for this.

  7. Do we need to give an affidavit of address change along with this request letter for change of address
