What Went Wrong at Upstox on 1st Feb 2021, Budget Day:-

In an email to customers, Shrini Viswanath Co-founder & CTO off Upstox said that “On 1st February 2021, we were facing hardware issues at our end, and one of our primary order management servers (an exchange approved OMS vendor)  failed at around 1:20 PM. The second we noticed this glitch my team and I personally started doing everything in our power to identify the root cause of the problem. While this was not an easy task, we were committed to identify and resolve the issue at the earliest. Unfortunately, it took longer than usual to restore the system back-ups, which is why users faced an issue placing orders. This was an extremely rare situation, and our team has been continuously working for the past 48 hours to ensure that something to this magnitude does not occur ever again. We sincerely apologize for the truly unfortunate incident.

To ensure the systems were fully functional today and customers do not suffer any further, as a precautionary measure we blocked fresh intraday trading at 12 PM requesting users to square off their positions by 2 PM. There were no order placement issues today. We opened up MCX intraday after 3:30 PM.
