1. When do you receive a CAS?
The SEBI requires that a CAS be sent to the investor for any
transaction in the previous month in any of his/her demat
accounts and/or mutual fund folios. Thus, CAS is received in

place. However, if there are no transactions in the demat
account and mutual fund folios in any month of the year, CAS
with the holding details will be sent only twice a year, in April

As per SEBI guidelines, the account statement is consolidated
based on the PAN. If there are multiple holding involved, the
pattern of holding and the PAN of the first holder is

AMCs and MF-RTAs, and match the PANs available in the
demat accounts of clients. Common PANs are identified and
allocated together for the purpose of CAS.
