A Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) is a way to invest small amounts in a Mutual Fund of your choice regularly (weekly, monthly, quarterly, or twice a year). SIP helps one incorporate discipline into their investing habits. These payments are automatically debited from your bank account, so you never have to worry about missing an investment instalment. 

SIP instalment process: As soon as you register for an SIP, the first instalment is deducted from your Upstox 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.
