As per the SEBI Circular - Revised IPO rules for UPI, page 6 says:

In order to ensure parity across the various channels for submitted applications, it has been decided that an investor making application using any of the aforesaid channel, shall use only his / her own bank account or only his / her own bank account linked UPI ID to make an application in public issues.

It means once the UPI is fully implemented only 1 IPO application will be allowed per bank account. Also, the bank account should belong to the same person who is applying for IPO. This is unlike earlier where banks like SBI use to allow 5 application from one bank account, the new rule will allow only 1 application per bank account in an IPO.

This new rule will put a lot of hardship to Minor Account where online transaction banking is not allowed by most of the banks. It will also make it difficult for investors who apply for 1 application on each family member's name using the same bank account to increase the chance of allotment in an IPO.

I have UPI ID of an Joint account with my wife, from this account I am applying IPO applications in both ID's of us by using single UPI Id. Same account is also not liked with my broker but I am receiving allotment in my account.

I want to know that that I am applying correct or note and it it the reason for no allotment in wife's account is that she is second holder of account.

Submitting IPO application through net banking and blocking funds via ASBA was the best method .Blocking funds via UPI is not at all understood
Why SEBI is un-necessarily harassing retail IPo investors. What extra benefit in UPI mode over ASBA is not all understood

Dear Mr. Shiv,
With UPI as the only payment method, SEBI is trying to reduce the time of listing from current 7+ days to 3 days. This has many advantages:

1. Reduce cost for investors as most HNI and FII clients loan the money to invest in IPO and pay interest.

2. Reduce the cost for companies coming up with IPO as it takes less number of days to raise the funds.

3. Reduce the risk for companies and investors in terms of market moments. The risk is higher when the IPO is open for a longer duration.

But the challenge with UPI is, the infrastructure is not yet ready. Once implemented corrected, it will be huge benefit to everyone.
