We are going live with eDIS on the Jiffy App and Web. What does this mean for investors?

Earlier, investors had to courier a signed copy of their Power of Attorney (POA) or Delivery Instruction Slip (DIS) in order to sell their holdings. With the eDIS facility by CDSL, investors can now sell the stocks from their holdings via an online authorisation using TPIN.

So, What Is It?

eDIS or Electronic Delivery Instruction Slip is an alternative to Power of Attorney for investors who want to sell their holdings but haven’t submitted their POA. It is a facility by CDSL that allows an investor to authorise their holdings online via a TPIN and sell stocks without the need for physically couriering a POA. eDIS is applicable only on Equity Delivery Sell Transactions. The facility is currently available to those who have a Demat Account with the CDSL Depository.
