What is Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), and how to invest in REIT IPOs using UPI?

REIT IPO applications made through UPI are considered as Non-Individual Investor (NII) category bids. Once applied, the bids cannot be cancelled or decreased. However, they can be increased up to ₹5 lakhs.

Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are like mutual funds for real estate investment. Investors pool their money, and a REIT invests in commercial properties. Returns come from rental income and property value appreciation. To learn how REITs can be used in the investment portfolio, visit reit.com and zerodha.com/varsity/chapter/asset-allocation-an-introduction.

REIT IPOs can be applied on Kite app and web like any other IPO. To know the supported UPI apps, visit npci.org.in/what-we-do/ipo/live-partners. To apply for a REIT IPO, follow these steps:

Zerodha sends an email requesting clients to accept the mandate on the UPI app. The UPI mandate can be accepted until 5 PM on the closing day of the REIT IPO. The exchange will send an SMS confirming the application by the end of the day.

Did you know?

  • If a client uses the wrong UPI ID or cannot receive a mandate request for any reason, they cannot delete their application. However, they can apply using Netbanking ASBA. The application through net banking will still be considered unique and eligible for allotment since the UPI mandate step was not completed.
  • There are no charges to apply for an IPO through Zerodha.
