At the moment, you can only transfer shares from Upstox to another Demat account and vice-versa if they’re a CDSL Demat account.  There are two ways to do this - offline and online.

Offline Process:

To transfer shares from your Upstox account to another Demat account via the offline process, please follow these steps:-

1. Fill and sign this - DIS (delivery instruction slip) form 

(In case of multiple account holders, it needs to be duly filled by all)

To help you understand this better, here is a sample:

2. All the fields marked in red need to be filled out 

3. The fields on top of the form - Client ID, DP ID, First/Sole Holder’s Name are details of the account you’re transferring shares from

4. The fields at the bottom - Counter DP ID, Counter Client ID and Counter Client Name are details of the account you’re transferring shares to

5. Ensure to enter the Scrip name, ISIN, and quantity of shares you’re transferring 

6. Please specify the reason for transfer of shares in the DIS form

Beneficiary Account Addition:

  1. CDSL introduced a new process to prevent erroneous security transfers from Sellers (Transferors) to Buyers (Transferees).
  2. During Off-market/Int-DP transfers, Sellers must add/map the Buyers' beneficiary accounts under their accounts.
  3. Clients need to submit Annexure A (attached) along with the DIS slip during share transfers.
  4. The DP will add/map the beneficiary account mentioned in Annexure A for the client.
  5. The Transferor (client) receives a link on their registered Mobile/Email ID to authenticate the OTP for the added beneficiary account.
  6. Please courier the DIS and Annexure A form to the following address once you have filled and signed it
    Harishchandra Sawant , Upstox Securities Private Limited,
    30th Floor, Sunshine Tower,
    Senapati Bapat Marg,
    Dadar- W,
    Mumbai - 400013


  • Failure to process the OTP will result in the beneficiary account authentication status remaining "Pending," preventing the transfer of shares to the target account.
  • The OTP link is valid until the end of the same day.
  • Beneficiary account mapping can be done through Easi/Easiest login, eliminating the need to send Annexure A with a signature.

  • To transfer shares from another broker to Upstox there are no charges.
