Uncovering the Varied Reasons Behind Unclaimed or Lost Shares
In the Early days, investment in shares was carried out through physical share certificates. The investments made in a company in the form of shares or debentures by the investors were allotted in physical form. These shares/debentures being in paper form were difficult to store and easily destroyable and losable. It was hard to keep them securely in the paper form as the investors would eventually end up losing them or dismantling them due to various reasons such as shifting from one place to another, wear & tear of the share/Debenture certificate. There could be multiple reasons as listed below for such unclaimed shares in physical form.

Here are Three of the Major Services You Can Get at MUDS.
Service #1: Share Transmission
What is the Meaning of Share Transmission?
It means transferring shares by Operation of Law i.e transfer of shares in the legal heir after the death of the original shareholder. The Legal heir faces problems with transmission of shares due to reasons including death, insolvency, marriage, lunacy, inheritance, bankruptcy or due to any other “statutory” reasons except natural transfer. Once you have registered for the share transmission with a company, you are not only the shareholder; you are also entitled to all the rights.

Mix up of “Transfer of Shares” and “Transmission of Shares”: It is found to be one of the most common problems faced by shareholders.
