You should consider a new page which can be named disappointing IPOs
This page should highlight IPO stock between year 1 to year 5 specially those who are trading below atleast 20 percent of issue price post adjusting corporate action
On similar pattern
Consider a page for Happy IPOs again between year 1 to year 5 for IPOs trading above 20% of issue price adjusting for corporate actions

I had applied for RailTel IPO (13 lots) through Zerodha and BHIM UPI. Amount was blocked/lien in my SBI account. Later, I was allotted 1 lot and shares are now reflected in my Zerodha/Demat account.

Since, the entire amount remained blocked/lien even after allotment and I was in need of funds, I e-mailed SBI to unblock remaining amount.

But, they had now unblocked the ''entire'' mandate amount and no deduction was made towards that allotted 1 lot of shares.

In other words, it seems that I have 1 lot of RailTel shares without any cost.
What is this anomaly ? please help as I don''t want to loose my allotment.

SBI as an ASBA is prompt. You would have got back money for 12 Lots only( please. check again). 1 Lot was just 14-15 K only and you would have got refund of 1.72 lacks. And still if you fell they have refunded for 13 lots. Tomorrow when the Share doubles sell it and pay back SBI . You would still have profit of 14-15 K to Enjoy. Do comment back for benefit of all.

Finally, amount for 1 allotted lot has been deducted today i.e. 24 hrs after removing hold over entire mandate.

Burger king listed in normal market conditions vs Railtel that listed when the market lost a few hundred points. Else these circuits would have followed since day any case most retailers got out on the first day.
