Trading in the stock market is a function of buying and selling equities and derivative instruments. A transaction is said to be successful when each buys/sells order is executed and matched with a sell/buy order. It is finally settled when the stocks are credited to your Demat account after you buy that stock. In the case of a sell transaction, the transaction is settled once the stock is debited from your Demat account.
Until now, it used to take 2 days for the stock to be credited to your Demat account after you bought the stock. Similarly, in the case of sell transactions, it took 2 days for the stock to actually leave your Demat account.
