I applied for IRCTC OFS today in zerodha when I will receive shares to my demat account?
#zerodha:zerodha-platforms #trading

If you receive the allotment, shares will be credited to your Demat account on T+2 day.

Made a deposit in my trading account this morning and applied through console somewhere around 8 am as the start time was 7.53 AM. when Do I get a notification if I have been allocated any share? the money has not been debited from my trading account I still can see it. somewhere I read that broker gets to know the allotment status at 6 PM T day so if the fund has not been debited from my account by now does it mean no shares have been allocated to me?

how can i verify whether my IRCTC OFS is alloted or not?!

Applied for OFS sometime around 01 pm,But funds are still undebited from my trading account .Just got a mail stating my order was placed not accepted in the exchange,I am just confused out of my mind :laughing:

  • List item Normally when would we know that an allocation has been made to us and when will the shares be delivered?

  • List item Is there anything i need to do regarding the error mail i just receieved?

Any clarification would be much appreciated :pray:

@ShubhS9 I and my friend also received the same mail. You mean to say that all the orders from Zerodha failed? If yes, is there any chance of reconsideration and allocation?

Like others, I have also received a mail from Zerodha on the matter of the failed IRCTC OFS bid. Could you help up all to understand what exactly has gone wrong and how this issue is going to get resolved?

Even I got the same email from Zerodha.
Whose problem it is?

Got same email.
First try at OFS… :disappointed:


@siva @ShubhS9, any update on it?
It seems on couple of other brokers i have, the alloment of the shares have already happened.

Looks lk It’s not gonna happen :(… But no proper clarification from Zerodha team is worst…

Not getting an alottement is not the worry here,No one cares to reply .I have tweeted to them ,Raised a ticket but no replies anywhere .Dear Mr.Nithin @nithin ,Why can’t anyone update us on what’s what? Keeping us in the dark for no fault of ours isn’t fair .Hope things change

Hey, there was a tech issue where the orders that we submitted didn’t get accepted on the exchange platform. (some capacity constrain in terms of how many orders can be accepted at one time). We had sent an email saying that the order was rejected.
