What is a mandate and how to create them for SIPs on Coin web?

A mandate is a payment mechanism to automatically make payments for SIPs from the bank account.

To create a new mandate on Coin web, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the client ID.
  2. Click on Mandates.

  7. Authorise ICCL to debit the amount by clicking on the checkbox and click on Submit.
  8. Complete the process on the Debit Card or Netbanking portal.

The mandate will be active within 3 days of creation. The mandate status can be checked by clicking on Mandates where the pending and active mandates will be displayed.

Once a mandate has been created, it has to be linked to an SIP to make payments automatically. To link a mandate while creating a SIP, follow these steps:

  1. Select the fund and click on SIP.
  2. From the dropdown under Mandates , select the mandate.
  3. Enter the amount, frequency, click on Create SIP and Confirm.

A mandate can also be linked to an existing SIP. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Click on SIPs.
  2. Click on Modify.
  3. Click on the dropdown under Mandates and select a mandate.
  4. Click on Update SIP and then on Confirm.

On T day, the amount will be debited from the bank account and will be credited to ICCL’s bank account once the mandate is active.

Mandates can be renamed, modified or deleted. To learn more, see How to rename, modify, or delete a mandate on Coin web? Pending mandates are automatically deleted if the registration is not successful. However, a SIP can be unlinked from a mandate by following these steps:

  • To ensure that a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) starts within the current month, it must be set up at least 2 days prior to the preferred execution date. For example, if the client wants the SIP to execute on the 5th of each month, they need to set it up on or before the 3rd of the current month. If the SIP is set up on the 4th with an execution date of the 5th, it will start from the next month.
