What is the CDSL TPIN and how to use it to sell the stock holdings?

Clients do not have to enter the CDSL T-PIN and OTP to sell shares if they submit DDPI. To learn more about DDPI, see What is Demat Debit and Pledge Instruction (DDPI), and how to activate it online and offline?

As per the CDSL regulation, non-DDPI/POA customers must utilize the CDSL TPIN and OTP to authorize the debit of securities from their demat account for delivery sale transactions. With a CDSL TPIN, clients can pre-authorize the sale of their stocks at the beginning of each trading day, eliminating the need to do it for every delivery sell order placed during the day.

The CDSL TPIN would have been sent to clients via email from [email protected] and to their registered phone number. If, for any reason, they cannot locate or have forgotten the TPIN, it is possible to generate it again. To learn more, see How to generate the CDSL TPIN required to authorise the CNC sell transactions?
