Record Date and Ex-Dividend date

#1
Hi members, would glady help if you could clear some confusion on the following points
:
I hold certain shares of hdfc bank
1) hdfc bank results was on april 22. Where can I get official information on record date and ex-dividend date. (http://www.moneycontrol.com/company-facts/hdfcbank/dividends/HDF01#HDF01)
2) If i sell the shares after the record date , will i still get the dividend.
3) Usually the ex-dividend date is one business day before record date.
why is there disparity in this monecontrol link http://www.moneycontrol.com/stocks/marketinfo/dividends_declared/

ex-dividend date is the ultimate deciding date. Transactions before the ex-dividend date will entile the holder of the share to get the dividend. Transaction on and after the ex-dividend date will not give the holder, right for the dividend.

Some companies require some time for updating their records, which will be done by the record date. But even then, ex-dividend date is the final date to decide the eligibility for the dividend declared

From the following news on nse website
"HDFC Bank Limited has informed the Exchange that the Company has fixed Book Closure from June 7, 2014 to June 25, 2014 for the purpose of Dividend and Annual General Meeting scheduled to be held on June 25, 2014. (http://www.nseindia.com/live_market/dynaContent/live_watch/get_quote/GetQuote.jsp?symbol=HDFCBANK&illiquid=0)"

Would it be right for me to deduce that the ex-divdend date would be 5 June since T+2 days and record date 7 june????
