Difference between ex-date and record date

In case the company declares dividends, ex-date and record dates are also declared.
Ex-date is the last date of the transactions which are eligible for getting the dividends. Record date is usually 3 days ahead of ex-date.

Example - If company declares the dividend with record date as 5-october-2015, it means all share holders who own the stock on that particular date would be eligible to receive the dividend. People who buy the stock on or before ex-dividend date will get the dividend. If ex-dividend date is 2-Oct then if some one buys the stock on 3-october would not get the dividend.
