We hadn’t gone live with the e-mandate (which uses AADHAR to sign the e-nach). This has been stopped by NPCI, so no one will be able to offer this for now.


Hello Mr. Nithin,

I wish to know, how Zerodha as a discount brokerage house is undertaking mutual fund transactions i.e. SIP and lumpsum purchase transactions on BSE StAR MF platform in absence of e-mandate registration.

How is the payment being routed from client’s Bank Account to BSE StAR MF platform.

Kindly let me know.

Thanks & Regards,
CA. Mukund Pawar


The funds will be deducted from the clients trading account and not from his bank account.


Thank you for your timely response!

But once the funds are deducted from client’s trading account, where are the funds routed? Are the funds routed through BSE Star MF platform or are they routed directly to the Asset Management Company (AMC)/ Mutual Fund House?

Kindly let me know process flow.


Hello Bhuvanesh,

Are you a part of the Zerodha team? Kindly let me know.

If not, then kindly don’t answer my queries/ questions. I wish to interact with the Zerodha team and not with any third person.

It’s a sincere request.


Star MF handles this and I am from Zerodha. :slight_smile:


Thank you for your response! Bhuvanesh
Great to hear that !
