Pledged shares are collateral for a loan; invoking the shares means the lender transfers the shares to itself when the borrower fails to pay back the loan.
Invoking means that the lender has exercised his right on security and the shares have been actually transferred from the demat a/c of borrowers to the demat account of lenders. To that extent the promoters holding has reduced and lender has the liberty to sell the shares at any time and sue the borrower for balance amount.
