The terms "transfer" and "transmission" of shares are not equivalent. The term "transfer of shares" refers to the voluntary transfer of ownership of shares from one party to another. The transmission of shares, on the other hand, refers to the transfer of ownership of shares through the legal process initiated by a legal heir.

Transfer of shares requires payment of a stamp duty depending on the market value of the shares, whereas the transmission of shares method does not need payment of a stamp duty.

Section 56 of the Companies Act 2013 states that a company would only register the transfer of its shares and other securities if a valid instrument for transfer of shares (share transfer form) is filed as stipulated in Form No. SH 4.

Within 60 days of the date of completion of the share transfer agreement, the transferor or transferee of the shares must deliver Form SH 4 to the firm. Along with the share transfer certificate or the securities certificate.

If there isn't a share transfer certificate, the application for transfer of shares must be accompanied by a letter of allocation of securities. In addition, within two weeks after receiving a notification, the buyer must provide a "No Objection Letter."
