How to apply for KIMS IPO?

1. ASBA - All you have to do is, know if your demat is with NSDL or CDSL. Make a note of your Demat ID/DP ID/BO ID - 16 digit number from your broker terminal. Once you have these 2 information, go ahead and apply from your internet banking. One advantage in this process is that, once you submit the application, process ends there and amount gets blocked. While in UPI, you need to get mandate from your bank and need to authorize on time. Many parties are involved in UPI process (Bank, broker, 3rd party UPI app provider etc) and there are chances of delayed UPI mandates. This is a recent process and will take time to settle. Till then, it is better to apply from net banking, but ensure you enter correct 16 digit DP ID.
