  23. T Ramesh says:

    You have made made many innovative and helpful improvements for traders and investors to make their life easy. But still I am not getting my bonus shares, which were received at zero cost in my holdings because of your software problem. You are a great failure in this issue. I stopped buying shares when any co is giving bonus shares, because I won’t get it in my holdings. Will you solve this problem?

    • Nakul says:

      The bonus shares are directly credited to your demat account by the company if you were holding the shares as on the record date. Once the shares are credited in your account, it will show up in your holdings.
      It’ll be helpful if you can raise a ticket through our support portal with the details of the stock so that we can have this checked.
