Hi Admin

UPI is mandatory for applying IPO for retail investors?. I have applied 5 different demats from a single bank ASBA account. But did not get any allotment. Is this is because of new UPI rules.

Today's high is 790.00
This is fresh buying
I still believe it will rise up to 1500 in 2-3 years
50 spl.trains and 150 stations (rly) will be allotted to IRCTC for operations and modernizations in next 6-12 months
IRCTC will be treated as SPV(special purpose vehicle)
To privatize railways
E-ticket will be mandatory for premium trains like,VB,DURANTOs,HUMSAFAR,and others
Altogether makes this company look very attractive to me

Thank You Dear @Rahul Popat, Didnt knew then, that I could invest in NII category. Suppose that I could afford to invest Rs. 300000/- , what could have been my chances of allotment..?, and in cases like IRCTC which is hugely over-subscribed; what would have decided the allotment.
Kindly explain a bit.

Easy calculation
U apply amount divided by hni category subscription..that amount share u received...its too small....

For small investor its advisable apply only one lot

If u apply 3lakh and hni subscrption 300 times

U received 3000 rs share means its too less....

So better to apply only for one lot in over subscription and under subscription u can apply more lot....but under subscription share are....u know that why its under subscribe.

Always apply one lot only

Dear Mr. Rahul Wgl,

1. Pls read the below faq to understand the investor types:


2. For investment in NII, almost all investors use IPO funding. You can read about it at:

3. Unlike RII, the allotment in NII is on a proportionate basis. Please check some of the Basis of Allotment document to understand how shares are allocated in the NII category.


Please feel free to ask any further questions you may have.

Thank you,

I have a demat account in the sole name of my Grand daughter. SB Account is also opened in her sole name with father as her natural guardian with internet Banking facility. When we tried to apply IPO in her name, SBI did not permit blocking of application money (as SBI does not give transaction rights to minor accounts). Any one having practical knowledge of other Public sector Banks where they permit minor's IPO application and block the application money also?

Applied for IRCTC IPO, but could not get any allotment, Rs. 99200/- still in blocked phase by the bank (ANDHRA BANK). When can I expect the amount to get credited to my account, or Should I approach Banking Ombudsman for a Faster processing of my amount. Mailed both ALANKIT and ANDHRA bank regarding the same; ALANKIT did give a reponse saying that, they have already instructed the concerned banks and I may approach the BANK for further information. Kindly Suggest..

Contact your branch
And no logic to apply more than one lot in rii over subscription....
Then apply for more than 2 lakh so you can get shares in proportion of hni category.

Consider next time

You can buy now. You are eligible. Because in DRHP it stated RHP date is record date. After getting permission from sebi one company file RHP before making public issue.

@Darpan Bilandi

any person eligible under share holder quota can apply in both category i.e. Retail as well as Share Holder Quota but total amount must be less than 2 lakh (max. limit for retailers). In this case two applications will be submitted separately from single account i.e. one for shareholder quota and other for retail quota.

At least 1 hdfc bank share should be there by the cutoff date as per drhp. As drhp is not yet filed, cut off date is not known. But generally, Cutoff date is the drhp filing date. So if you are already having hdfc bank share, you should be eligible.

It all depends if the company fixes the record date after your purchase eg you purchase on 16/10 and record date is fixed say 17/10 you r eligible and if company declares record date 15/10 then you are not eligible for consideration
