    • 4 Introduction:  ASBA (Applications Supported by Blocked Amount) is an application containing an authorization to block the application money in the bank account, for subscribing to an issue. If an investor is applying through ASBA, his application money shall be debited from the bank account only if his/her application is selected for allotment after the basis of allotment is finalized, or the issue is withdrawn/failed.  ASBA is an additional mode of payment introduced by SEBI in July 2008 for easing up the process of applying in the Public Offer and making the process more efficient. For the purpose, SEBI has amended the SEBI (Disclosure and Investor Protection) Guidelines, 2000. This process is available in all public issues made through the book building route.

However, the banker will simply block the amount at the time of uploading the details in the bidding platform. Earning of Interest Here, the investor earns no interest. Here, the investor continues to earn interest as the amount is with the banker. Refund Here, the company will have to refund the amount to the investor within the time limit No question of refund. Impact of Listing As company can not list its share before entire process of issue is completed including refund, which delays the listing. As there is no question of refunding, so it causes no delay for listing.
    • 16 Suggestions for Popularizing ASBA  At present, there are two separate forms printed with separate colour codes – one for ASBA and another for non-ASBA applicant. Having two different forms may lead to a situation where ASBA forms may not be available in far-flung cities. As such, it would be better to have a common form with a check-box for ASBA.  ASBA is available only with a few banks and that too with a selected branches.  ASBA continues to be poorly advertised, if it is promoted well, both investor and banker will realize that it is a win-win for all.
