Hi Navnith,
Bigshare accepted that there were some problems in sending refunds for few investors.
The only way to get your money back to discuss this issue with Bigshare. They usually send refund by registered post through Post Office. Here is what you can do now:

1. Call bigshare, ask them for registry number and the complete address where they sent you the check.

2. Visit your nearest post office and check if they have any registry for you or returned any registry in last few days. They try couple of times to deliver and if no body at the address they return it back. It happened with me few times.

3. Do not worry as you will not loose any money (other then interest ). I am investing in IPO’s for 6 years now and they kind of problems are normal. It happens with all registar’s.
All the best!

Hi Friends,

I am in need of proper guidence. I have appalied for 1260 shares and got 344 shares. I got this shares to my demat account. the problem is with the rfund amount of 68700 which is supposed to be given as Physical warrant. I called big share regarding this.. the responce is they have send the check on 17th of March 2007. It 28th today and not recieved the money check at. This is a big amount for me.. and dont know why is the delay. I suspect bigshare of holding the money and getting the interest. is this a possible case?

What step I can take to get my money back? Please reply.

Insider information says , it will touch Rs. 150 in April. A FII is in plan to buy in bulk. Telecome is the future and this is a good stock to hold .Best wishes friends.

We are initiating coverage on Idea Cellular with a BUY. Idea, India's sixth-largest mobile operator, is well-placed to benefit from the ongoing boom in mobile subscribers. With shareholder issues now behind, Idea is aggressively ramping up its
mobile network and entering new circles of operations. The stock listed at a 14% premium to its IPO price, and our target price of Rs107 (25% implied upside) is based on a 10% discount to Bharti's valuations.
