    The IPO Cut-off Price is the price of a share decided by the issuer company based on the demand of its share during the IPOs where the range of price is given.

    An option is given to retail investors to apply at a cut-off price in IPOs. This means the IPO applicant doesn't have to choose a price. They can simply choose the 'cut-off' option and the shares are allocated at the cut-off price.

    For example; a company came up with an IPO with a price range of Rs 80 to Rs 90. Instead of choosing a number between 80 and 90, a retail investor can choose Cut-off. In this case, the investor will get the shares based on the price at which shares are allocated in other categories i.e. Institutional investors.

    Once you submit the IPO application in Zerodha Console, you should get a mandate in the UPI app to approve. It takes up to 24 hours to get the mandate. The process of getting the mandate to approve payment is not instant. The IPO application completes only when you approve the UPI transaction (mandate).
