Shares un-pledging with Samco StockPlus:

You can unpledged your shares by clicking on the Unpledge button on the holdings page. The shares would be unpledged at the end of the day and you can sell those shares on the next trading day.
We also provide the option of Instant Unpledge & Sale, where the shares would be unpledged instantly and sold in the market at the available market price.

If you’re an E-Samco client (client without active POA), you will be first redirected to the CDSL E-DIS portal where you’ll need to authenticate the E-DIS request, and only then instant Un-pledge request would be accepted.

  • If you’ve performed the E-DIS process for a particular stock, you will not be allowed to pledge the shares for the day. You’ll see the following disclaimer: “Since you have already entered E-DIS sale request with CDSL, Pledge request will not be allowed today. Kindly try pledging tomorrow.”
  • Only clear holdings to be allowed for E-DIS. Eg: If you have 100 shares of Reliance and you pledge 20 shares of Reliance under StockPlus, you would be allowed to perform E-Dis for the balance quantity of 80 only.
