Section 109A of the
Companies Act, 1956 provides the facility
of nomination to share holders.
Nomination enables smooth inheritance of ownership
of the shares by the Nominee without any procedural
difficulties. (Presently, there is no difficulty
where shares are registered in joint names.
But if the shares are held in an individual
name, addition of a joint name can only be
done as a transfer, involving share transfer
form, stamp duty, surrender of original certificates
etc. Following the nomination procedure eliminates
all this inconvenience) Therefore, if shares
are held in a single name, with the intention
of holding them for some more time, then please
advise nomination immediately without delay.
In the case of joint
holding of shares by individuals, nomination
will be effective only in the event of the
death of all joint holders.
