Hi everyone, Just check last CPSE ETF FFO 5 performance before applying for Bharat 22 ETF. Its allotted price was 24.69(after 3% discount) & since listing it never touched that price. It went below till 21.25 with 1 month. People incurred huge losses in it. So, my advice stay away from all disinvestment scheme as govt is only dumping its stake in inefficient PSU's on people.
