Before we begin, we need to clarify on some terminologies used in this document.
A DP (Depository Participant) is a broker who coordinates with the national depository to keep our shares, debentures etc. in electronic form
National Depository: Centrally authorized share depositories. Presently, there are two such depositories in India
CDSL (Central Depositories Services India Ltd)
NSDL (National Securities Depository Ltd)
Depending on to which national depository both the DP (From where you want transfer and to where) are associated with, the procedure for transfer are different.
Online transfer will only work if the national depository of both the to & from stock broker is the same.
CDSL Provides an online platform (EasiEasiest) for submitting off-market, on-market, inter-depository and early pay-in debit instructions from one's demat account. Below are the steps to use that facility to transfer shares from one DP to another

Similarly NSDL got Speed-e service which offers similar functions if your DP supports e-DIS.
Please try offline transfer only if the online option doesn’t work or you have to transfer shares between an NSDL and CDSL linked DP.

Get the DIS (Delivery Instruction Slip) from your existing stock broker.
Fill DIS with
Demat account number & DP ID of the account to which you need to transfer the shares.
Name of the security / company / scrip, and its ISIN number.
Send the DIS along with the CMR (Client master report) copy to the new account provider.
