    Yes, you can apply for an IPO in the name of a family member, a friend, or a relative. However, each account is limited to five applications. As a result, you can subscribe to an IPO using a friend's or relative's Demat account. You can apply for an IPO directly through your Demat account or contact your broker and authorise them to apply on your behalf.

    If you are applying for an IPO using a bank account through 'ASBA', you will need an active Demat account number. You can place multiple IPO applications but make sure you apply them from separate Demat accounts. If you apply in a family member's name, make sure the PAN number registered with their demat account is different.
