IPO is regulated by SEBI laid Issue of Capital and Disclosure Requirements (ICDR) Regulations. The SEBI's stringent norms make IPO a safe process.

You can apply for IPO online or offline at your convenience. When you apply for an IPO, the IPO application money gets blocked in your bank account that you cannot use for any other purpose, but it continues to earn interest. The funds get debited only once you get an allotment in the IPO. If you do not get any shares in an IPO, the funds get unblocked as per the given IPO schedule. Thus, your funds remain safe in the bank account.
