This question already has an answer here:

I was playing around in parity and deployed my own token. However,in total supply calculation I have made a mistake of not multiplying desired_supply * 10^decimals and ended up with less coins. How can I edit this?

The answer depends on your smart contract. But assuming you're using a fairly standard ERC20 token contract, there's no way to modify the total supply.

  • Thank you. What about changing the token registry decimal in Parity. I've also registered the token on parity with 10 decimals. Is there a way to change that maybe? – Sahil Gadimbayli Jan 17 '18 at 20:34
  • Again, it's impossible to answer without seeing the code for your smart contract. But in general, code can't be changed after you deploy a smart contract, so the only changes that can happen are ones the code can do. If there's no function that changes the number of decimals (which I would hope there isn't :-P), then you can't change it. – smarx Jan 17 '18 at 20:36
