As audited accounts start to trickle in, companies will propose dividend payments to their shareholders as recommended by their respective boards of directors. It is also important to track these announcements to know who is eligible to collect the dividend, when it will be approved and when it will be paid. Dividend payment also affects share prices.

This page will be updated from time to time.


Date Announced – The date the company announced dividends evidenced by a corporate action published on the website of the NSE

Payment date – This is when the dividend will be paid to you, either via post (dividend warrants) or direct credit to your bank accounts (e-dividend).

Closure of Register – Only shareholders who own shares before this date will be paid dividend. If you sell before this date you won’t get the dividend. If you sell after you will still get the dividend but the new owner will not get.
