For example if a bidder bids Rs.10,00,000/ - for a Lot, others, in order to beat this bid, have to quote a lower price with a minimum decrement say of Rs.2,500/- i.e. in order to be eligible they have to quote Rs.9,97,500/- (or lower) for the same Lot.

Bidder is preoccupied and not in a position to put bids live as the auction is going on. Proxy Bid is a bidding option through which, the system places bids on your behalf. You need to check (click) the proxy bid box on the screen and place the lowest value to which you can bid and then place submit button and confirm. Once the proxy is activated the bids are placed automatically as per the minimum decrements. The lowest value of your proxy bid amount is not visible by any other bidder. When a bidder exercises the proxy option, the proxy bid remains L1 till the lower bid value fed in the auction machine is exhausted i.e. a lower bid, less than the lower bid value offered by the bidder exercising the proxy, is offered by another bidder. If a bidder bids a price equal to the lower limit of the proxy bid, the proxy bidder gets precedence over him at that price. Example: Suppose, the current bid in the market is Rs.10000 and the min. decrement is Rs.100 and you have activated proxy till Rs.9500. Now say a bidder places a bid of Rs.9800, the system automatically bids Rs.9700 on your behalf at the same time and keeps you as a leading bidder. ********
