What is ASBA?

ASBA or Application Supported by Blocked Amount, is a share application process whereby a demat account holder can apply for newly issued shares within the application interval by requesting his/her/its bank to block the application amount until the shares are allotted. The bank needs to be registered member of ASBA from CDS & Clearing Ltd.

If shares are allotted to him/her/it, the bank automatically transfers the allotted amount to the issue manager and releases the remaining amount. If shares aren’t allotted to the applicant, the total application amount is released by the bank. If the shares are allotted, then the applicant receives the allotted shares in his/her/it’s demat account (as indicated in the ASBA form) once the shares are listed.
