We have updated the app to give you a better experience.

SIP instalment process: As soon as you register for an SIP, the first instalment is deducted from your Bank account. So ensure, your account has sufficient funds. After the first instalment, you need to set up the auto-debit system for paying your SIP instalments. Depending on the bank that you want to register with, it can take around T+7 days incase of online mandate and 25 days for the offline mandate to be approved. Once the mandate is approved, an auto-debit structure will be set up with your bank.


Set up Autopay: 


Online /E-Mandate: Based on the user's bank, Upstox checks with NPCI whether the bank supports the online mandate authentication process led by NPCI. If the bank is supported, the user can avail online mandate service.

To process a mandate, follow these steps:


Step 1: When your SIP order gets placed, you can see 'Start Autopay' on the order status page.


Step 2: Next you will see the Authentication page from BSE Star MF to continue with the email verification code. After SIP Registration, you can also check the email you receive from BSE StarMF for E-Mandate Authentication. This will be with a subject line ‘BSE StarMF E-Mandate Authentication Link’.

Step 3: You need to proceed by providing the Verification code sent from BSE StarMF on your registered email.

Step 4: After submitting the security code, you will see the below Mandate page. From here, choose the verification mode: Net Banking or Debit Card. After clicking on T&C, click on submit. 


Step 5: Next transaction status of the mandate will be shown.


Step 6: Here E-Nach response can be seen.

As per the announcement by RBI, NACH (National Automated Clearing House) will be operational for all the days with effect from 1 August, 2021.

This means your SIPs will be debited on Saturdays and Sundays or any non working days apart from the date you selected while setting up your investment.

Please ensure that you maintain the required balance in your bank account to avoid any penalty charges by your bank. You can also check the return instruction charges with your bank to stay more informed.

Step 1: Take a printout of the mandate form after downloading.

Note: If you do not have the mandate form, you can visit the MF page and click on Download Form.


Step 2: Sign and mention your name as per the bank records.

Step 3: Scan the signed mandate form.

Step 4: Take a Photo of the mandate and click on upload signed form.

Note: Only JPEG files with less than 1mb size are allowed to upload. You must not edit any other content that is mentioned in the mandate form.

The signed bank mandate will be verified by the Upstox team and sent to BSE who will then send it to your respective bank for registration. Depending on the bank that you want to register with, it can take about 25 days for the mandate to be approved. Once the mandate is approved, an auto-debit structure will be set up with your bank.

Online /E-Mandate

Depending on the bank that you want to register with, it can take around T+7 days incase of online mandate and once the authentication process is completed by you, your respective bank will send the status of your mandate to BSE and the same is reflected on the Upstox Mutual Fund Platform. 

Cost of registering a bank mandate

Upstox does not charge you anything for registering any kind of mandate. However, with the recent circular from NPCI, your bank might ask you for a one-time fee in order to register the mandate. The charges differ from bank to bank. The Upstox team urges you to check the mandate charges with your bank.
