What is TPIN?

The TPIN is a 6-digit pin that is sent to your registered mobile and email. In case you have an existing account, you would have received a Pin already on your registered Email ID and Mobile Number with 5paisa.

For new accounts, the PIN is generated and sent to your Email ID and Mobile Number within 2 days of the activation of the account. The TPIN is used only to authorize the selling of shares from your DEMAT account. The same TPIN can also be used for the transfer of shares from your Demat Account to the 5paisa collateral account for availing of margin benefit.

If you ever forget the TPIN, you can always click on the Forgot TPIN link to get a new one. The TPIN is reusable and need not be generated for each transaction.
