  • Resident Indian individuals, NRIs, HUFs, Companies, Corporate Bodies, Scientific Institutions, Societies, and Trusts who apply for more than Rs 2 lakhs of IPO shares fall under the NII category.
  • Not less than 15% of the Offer is reserved for the NII category.
  • A high Net-worth Individual (HNI) who applies for over Rs 2 Lakhs in an IPO falls under this category.
  • Non-institutional bidders are permitted to withdraw their bids until the day of allotment.
  • NIIs are not eligible to bid at the cut-off price.
  • NII need not register with SEBI.
  • NII Sub-categories

    NII category has two subcategories:

    1. sNII (bids below Rs 10L)

      The Small NII category is for NII investors who bid for shares between Rs 2 lakhs to Rs 10 lakhs. The 1/3 of NII category shares are reserved for the Small NII sub-category. This subcategory is also known as Small HNI (sHNI).

    2. bNII (bids above Rs 10L)

      The Big NII category is for NII investors who bid for shares worth more than Rs 10 Lakhs. The 2/3 of NII category shares are reserved for the Big NII subcategory. This subcategory is also known as Big HNI (bHNI).

  • sNII Allotment Basis
    • If IPO doesn't get over-subscribed in the sNII sub-category, full allotment to all applicants in the sNII category.
    • If IPO is oversubscribed in the sNII sub-category, the allotment to each investor shall not be less than the minimum application size (~Rs 2 Lakhs), subject to the availability of Equity Shares in the sNII Portion.
    • This is similar to allotment in the RII category but instead of 1 lot, the sNII investor gets shares worth of minimum application size which is just above Rs 2 lakhs.
    • Example: if the IPO subscribed 2 times (application-wise) in the sNII sub-category, 1 out of 2 applicants will get the minimum sHNI application (worth around Rs 2 Lakhs) irrespective of how many shares they applied for.
  • bNII Allotment Basis
    • If IPO doesn't get over-subscribed in the bNII sub-category, full allotment to all applicants in the bNII category.
    • If IPO is oversubscribed in the bNII sub-category, the allotment to each investor shall not be less than the minimum sNII application size (~Rs 2 Lakhs), subject to the availability of Equity Shares in the bNII Portion.
    • This is similar to allotment in the RII category but instead of 1 lot, the bNII investor gets shares worth of minimum application size which is just around Rs 2 lakhs.
