If you are using the Mero Share application quite a few times then you must be familiar with the Mero Share interface. But you might have come across the one message that says “BO Level Frozen for Debit”. So, in this article, I am going to show you how to solve this problem in Mero Share.
What is BO Level Frozen for Debit?
“BO Level Frozen for Debit” message occurs when your DEMAT account is expired. In this case, you can only buy shares but you can not sell them. The message simply says the beneficiary owners are only allowed to credit the shares but are not allowed to credit.
If your DEMAT account is expired, then all of your shares will be in the “Freeze Balance” as shown in the pic above. In order to freely sell and buy the shares, your account should be in “Account Status = ACTIVE”.
Another reason the account to be freez is is if account is minor and account holder completes 18 years. In this case the bank account should be converted into major and DEMAT also should be updated.
How to Solve BO Level Frozen for Debit?
So, to solve the “BO Level Frozen for Debit” error, you just need to renew your DEMAT account. There are two ways you can renew your DEMAT Account. Either by paying the renewal amount directly in the respective bank capital or online. I recommend using the online payment for renewal through eSewa, Khalti, or connect-IPS.
- Login to Mero Share
- Go to your name on the right top side
- Click in the “Renew” button as shown in the pic above
- Select the payment method
- You can renew Mero Share and Demat at once. Or you can renew it separately.
What is the DEMAT Fee in Nepal?
Depository Participants (DP) charge Rs. 50 for opening a new DEMAT account. Beneficiary Owners have to pay Rs. 100 every year as a DEMAT renewal fee. You can check the fee taken by DP for different purposes as follows.
NOTE: You can also renew your DEMAT automatically from the bank. For this, you have to fill the automatic DEMAT renewal form in the respective bank so that every year, your renewal fee will be automatically deducted from the bank account. You should not do any renewal hassles.
