What is ASBA?

ASBA is “Application Supported by Blocked Amount”. It is an application that can be used by an investor subscribing in IPO/FPO/Rights shares and acts as an authorisation to block the application money in the bank account.

What are the benefits of applying through ASBA?

Investors applying using the ASBA form reap the following benefits:

  • No loss of interest, since the application amount is not debited to the savings account on application.
  • The amount for which no shares have been allotted is available immediately on completion of allotment process. There is no need to wait for the amount to be refunded by the company and be credited to the account.
  • Since the amount is available in the account, it is considered for calculation of the Average Quarterly Balance (AQB).
  • Multiple bidding facility is available to the Customer.
  • Customer can revise/withdraw the bid before the end of the Issue in the prescribed format with the Bank.

What happens when I apply for an IPO through ASBA?

When applied using the ASBA form, the investors would not have to pay the money during IPO application. The amount would be retained in the investor's bank account and blocked for the IPO application. Only if shares are allotted to the investor, the amount would be paid to the company towards the IPO allotment. If there is no allotment, the amount would be simply released, and the investor would be able to utilise it immediately.

Can I open ASBA with any bank?

ASBA can be opened with a Self Certified Syndicate Bank (SCSB) as per SEBI guidelines. Not all banks are enlisted as SCSB. Kotak Mahindra Bank is an SCSB. Also, the ASBA IPO Application form can be submitted at the bank branch, which is designated for the purpose. Both these factors should be considered while opening ASBA.

What is the application process? Where do I submit the IPO application?

  • Complete the Beneficiary registration process over net banking or by submitting a registration form at the branch
  • Complete the Beneficiary Activation process (not required in case of physical form submitted at branch)
  • Apply for Initial and Follow-on Public Offers (IPO and FPO), Rights Issues, and Debt Issues over Net Banking / Phone Banking
  • You can also apply for the Initial and Follow-on Public Offers (IPO and FPO), Rights Issues, and Debt Issues by submitting an ASBA application form at the designated branch of Kotak Mahindra Bank. Please note that a separate ASBA application form is available for every public issue. Registration is mandatory if you wish to avail the facility over net banking or phone banking.
