2. What will happen if you have 15 shares of Tata Coffee?

  • For the demerger, you are entitled to receive (1/22)x 15= 0.68 shares. However, this is a fractional entitlement, and the amount of this fractional share will be directly credited to your bank account

  • For the merger, you will receive (14/55)x 15 = 3 shares, and the amount of remaining fractional shares i.e. 0.82 shares will be directly credited to your bank account.

  • Hence, the total number of Tata Consumer shares to get credited to your demat account is 3.
