What is CASBA Charge? 

C-ASBA is a modernized version of ASBA that was implemented on Falgun 11 2074 by CDS and Clearing limited. ASBA was also introduced by SEBON, which enabled investors to apply for shares via their banks. The Mero Share service provides investors with the ability to purchase IPOs, FPOs, Right Shares, Mutual Funds, and Debentures online.

All of the BFIs providing ASBA services are linked through C-ASBA. Individuals’ data can be linked to the Beneficiary Owner’s ID (BOID) using the computerized system.

As a result of the C-ASBA Registration Number (CRN), investors’ BOID (Demat Number) can be connected to their bank account. Following verification of the BOID, banks provide CRN numbers to investors. The CRN is required to apply for publicly issued securities such as IPOs, FPOs, right shares, mutual funds, and debentures.
