Apparently my Indusind Bank online is showing link for Vodafone Idea rights issue application and it is asking amongst other things mandatory "Application Reference No."
I believe that it must be referrring to the CAF No. which i got.
Someone please guide if we can apply online through Indusind Bank.

Firstly; I am not rights issue expert...I myself have received form and had quick go through.

The form has list of banks, apparently Axis Bank, HDFC Bank and SBI along with eligible branch for each where the form need to be submitted, though very limited cities and then a single branch there-in.

Will add on gaining more insights.
