We find from our records that you are one of the regular investors in IPOs/equity shares.  We thought it appropriate to bring to your notice the following:


SEBI has recently introduced a new process popularly referred to as ASBA (Application Supported by Blocked amount) process.  Under this process, the bid amount is blocked in your account at the time of bidding.  If and when an allotment is made against your application to the extent of money due on the shares allotted,  your account will be debited and the money will be remitted to the company.  Therefore, the bid amount remains in your account earning interest during the whole process period.  Your account will be debited only to the extent of shares allotted, if any, and the remaining amount will be unblocked.  There will be no refund as such and therefore the problems related to non-receipt of refund will not be encountered by you.  This is a facility extended by some self certified syndicate bankers (SCSBs) who have registered as such with SEBI.  Currently the following banks have been identified as SCSB banks.
