You can sell your shares immediately after the deposit. However, you may only physically withdraw the funds on T+12 days.
In the meantime, you can use the funds in your account to purchase shares.
The name on the physical scrip must be the same as the name of the account holder. If the share certificates are registered in the name of a nominee, then you need to provide proof of beneficial ownership.
