Details of ASBA application from Kotak Bank

The CRN (Customer Relationship Number) is a 8 digit numeric code printed on your debit and credit card. Click on 'Secure Login', enter the OTP received on your email and mobile.
On your account page, on the top menu and click on "More" and then on "Online IPO (ASBA)", Click on "Apply for IPO" on the left menu.

Remember, your Demat Account number has 16 characters together, the 8 characters make the DP ID while the last 8 are Client ID. Click 'Next' after checking the 'terms and conditions' box.
Click on 'Apply for IPO' tab on the left side menu of the page. Select the beneficiary.
Now select the IPO, you wish to apply for from the dropdown list
Select your 'Investor Category' based on your investment amount. Click on 'Next'.
Here, 'Beneficiary Details', 'Account Details', 'Investor Details' and 'Issue Details' is automatically filled. Go through 'Issue Details' to understand the key requirements of the issue like minimum no shares, bid size, minimum and maximum amount, price band etc.
You can enter up to 3 bids. Enter the number of shares you wish to bid for. Remember, every IPO has a minimum number of shares to bid for and if you want more you need to bid in multiples of that. So if the minimum number is 1200 then you can bid for 1200, 2400, 3600 etc.
Another important consideration is on selecting the Cut Off Price. The cut-off price is useful in Book Building issues where you have to bid within a price range given by the company. The company then decides on a price at the time of allotment and investors who have bidded for price equal to or above the decided price are allotted shares.
The cut-off price is an option given to retail investors. Opting for cut-off price means you are giving consent to buy the shares at the price decided by the company during allotment. It saves you from bidding race and ensures that you're eligible for allotment at the price decided by the company.
After filling all the details, check the 'terms and conditions' box and click on 'Next'.
On the next screen, you will be provided with all the details of the IPO to verify and confirm. Go through all the details. If you need correction on any detail, click on 'Go Back'. If everything is OK, click on 'Confirm & Submit'.
Wait for the confirmation message to appear on screen. Your application is complete.
You can view your IPO application details by clicking on 'View Application Details'. You can search by Date Range or enter your Application Number.
