But first, please explain what mandates are and how physical and electronic mandates (E-mandates & P-mandates) differ from one another.

Unleash the Power of E-Mandates: Say Goodbye to Worries with Seamless SIPs!

A mandate is simply a standing instruction that you give either to your issuing bank or other institutions to debit money automatically. E-mandate is the process of setting up the mandate through a debit card or net banking authorization and requires no paperwork. E-mandate is the same thing that is sometimes referred to as E-Nach.

Once you set up an e-mandate and link it to your existing SIPs, all of them will be executed seamlessly on the dates you set up without you having to check them. No more sleepless nights or constant monitoring is required; sit back, relax, and witness the magic unfold as your investment dreams come true.

How do I register for e-mandate through Paytm Money?

You can set up an e-mandate in the Direct MF tab under Setup Autopay. Registration can be done either through your net banking or debit card credentials. There is no cost that Paytm Money will charge you for setting up an e-mandate.

P-Mandate: Unveiling the Mystical Bond Between You & Your Bank

NACH or P-Mandate refers to the written authorization provided by the customer to their bank for the bank to debit their account electronically through NACH. This is in contrast to E-Mandate, where the customer authorizes the bank to debit their account electronically without requiring a physical form or signature.

When your bank does not support E-Mandates or you do not have Net Banking credentials or a Debit Card, you must register for a P-Mandate. You can check with your registered bank to see if they allow E-Mandate setup.

Does Paytm Money support P-Mandate ?

Yes, we do. In case your bank doesn’t support E-Mandate set up, you will get a physical form on your registered mail after you register for a P-Mandate which you would have to fill out and upload on Paytm Money.

But how do I choose between these three options?

Note: Please keep in mind that Paytm Money will never charge you a fee if you set up an autopay on our platform.

To Sum It Up

Irrespective of the payment mode you choose, once you link your SIP to Autopay Mandates, you allow automatic payments without the need for manual intervention or reminders.
Benefits that Mandate Payment offers you are:

  1. Convenience: AutoPay mandates eliminate the need for manual payments, reminders, and follow-ups, providing convenience and saving time for customers.
  2. Timely payments: With AutoPay mandates, payments are made automatically on the due date, ensuring timely payments and avoiding late fees or penalties.
  3. Cost-effective: There are no charges linked to Autopay mandates transactions
  4. Reduced risk of errors: Since AutoPay mandates are processed automatically, there is a reduced risk of errors like network issue while making payments or Incorrect PIN
