3 - 4 minutes readWhat is CDSL TPIN?

In stock trading, the CDSL TPIN is very useful. It’s a six-digit password that authorises the broker to deduct the selected stock from the CDSL’s Demat account for a period of up to 90 days. A TPIN acts as a PoA and can thus be considered it’s alternate.


Your Demat account will get an additional degree of security as a result of this. To validate the transaction, you’ll need to enter a unique One Time Sell Authorisation pin delivered to your cell phone. CDSL generates the PIN and sends it to your phone number.

Check out this blog to learn more about TPIN and how to produce, reset, and use CDSL TPIN in just a few easy steps.

What is CDSL TPIN?

In June of 2020, the CDSL TPIN was introduced. CDSL TPIN is a 6-digit password that enables consumers to authorise Demat transactions or stock sales from their account.

Customers receive their CDSL TPIN straight from the CDSL. Customers can also use an OTP obtained on their phone to reset their pin online at any time.

When selling stocks, the TPIN is utilised for e-DSL verification. Using a CDSL TPIN protects investors because brokers are unable to tamper with it lawfully at any time. Let’s look at what TPIN is and how it can help you.

How to generate the CDSL TPIN?

If the consumer does not have a CDSL TPIN, he or she can generate one for themselves. You can produce the CDSL TPIN by following the steps outlined below:

  6. CDSL will send you your TPIN through email or SMS to your registered email address and mobile number after you enter the OTP.

How to Use CDSL TPIN?

Customers use the CDSL TPIN to authorise the selling of shares from their account. Customers can use their CDSL TPIN by following these steps:

  2. To complete the sale of the selected share, pick the ‘Verify Sale’ option.

  5. The consumer is then led to another page on the broker’s website or mobile app where the sale order can be finalised once the TPIN has been verified.

5 Benefits of CDSL TPIN

The CDSL TPIN, which was recently introduced, provides the following advantages to Demat Account holders:

  1. It makes Demat Account transactions safer and more secure by removing the need to sign the Demat Account PoA with the stock broker.
  2. The TPIN allows for more control over the authorization of transactions made through the Demat Account.
  3. Every Demat withdrawal transaction that takes place through your account requires a CDSL TPIN, especially if you have not signed a Power of Attorney with your stock broker.
  4. Because the TPIN is administered by the CDSL, it is very difficult for a stock broker to misuse or manipulate it for their own benefit.
  5. The entire procedure of opening a demat account becomes fully paperless with the CDSL TPIN. Previously, the requirement to sign the PoA made it a paper procedure because the PoA could only be signed and filled out on paper.
