Benefits accruing to the shareholders and/or unit holders of Mutual Funds in the nature of dividends, units, bonus etc are generally referred to as corporate benefits.

The company/R&T Agents will distribute dividend, interest and other monetary benefits directly to the client, if the shares are in demat form, on the basis of the particulars of the holdings of beneficial owners received from NSDL/ CDSL on the cut off date. If the company is making the payment through ECS, the company will directly credit the dividend to the bank account, which is registered by the client with the DP.  If the company is making the payment through cheque, the bank details will be printed on the warrant. The mode of payment of the dividend etc is decided by the company. 

In case of bonus allotment by the company, the clients holding the shares in electronic form, will directly receive credit in their demat account. Intimation to that effect would be send by the company/ Registrar to the client. 

In case of rights issue, on the basis of the details of holdings from NSDL/CDSL, the Registrar dispatches, the application form for rights issues to the beneficial owners. The customer has to exercise the option to hold the shares in physical or in electronic form. If he opts for the later, the client has to mention the DP Id and the client ID on the form.
