Are you a day trader?

No, one person cannot apply multiple times through multiple applications for an IPO. It's a rule and if you apply in an IPO though multiple applications with same name or same demat account or same PAN Number, all of your application will be rejected.

If you would like to place order for multiple application, it works if you apply one each of your family member's name. But again all eligible family members should have a demat account and a PAN number.

YES, You can apply no of application who's account opened as demat account with indl PAN No. I mean to say one PAN No demat account apply for one application in any IPO if you have five family members demat account than all five application apply for one IPO
