IPO applications of ₹2 lakh to ₹5 lakh are considered under the HNI category. Applications up to ₹5 lakh can be placed using UPI. For any amount above ₹5 lakh, use ASBA. See What is ASBA?

There is no separate option to choose HNI while applying for an IPO; a bid above ₹2 lakh is considered under the HNI category. The IPO window for HNI clients closes at 4 PM on the last day of bidding.

Did you know? The Cutoff price option cannot be selected for bids above ₹2 lakh, and the bid price needs to be entered manually.

IPO applications under the HNI category cannot be deleted or modified to reduce the size of the application according to SEBI IPO regulations. Modifications in this category can only be made to increase the size of the application. For example, an application of ₹3 lakhs can be modified to ₹4 lakhs but cannot be reduced to ₹2.5 lakhs.
