Transmission of Units

If Units are held in a single name by the Unit Holder, Units shall be transmitted in favor of the nominee where the Unit Holder has appointed a nominee upon production of death certificate or any other documents to the satisfaction of the AMC / Registrar. If the Unit Holder has not appointed a nominee or in the case where the nominee dies before the Unit Holder, the Units shall be transmitted in favor of or as otherwise directed by the Unit Holder's personal representative(s) on production of the death certificate and / or any other documents to the satisfaction of the AMC / Registrar. If Units are held by more than one registered Unit Holder, then, upon death of one of the Unit Holders, the Units shall be transmitted in favor of the remaining Holder(s) (in the order in which the names appear in the register of Unit Holders with the Registrar) on production of a death certificate and / or any other documents to the satisfaction of the AMC /Registrar and to the nominee only upon death of all the Unit Holders.
