I had applied for RailTel, but no shares allotted and the amount is still blocked. What can I do to get it unblocked?
Applied from Zerodha.
830. RajBreaks |Feb 28, 2021 12:02
I Think, All Retailers Must Have Been Given Credits.
Listing Day Pe Jaldbazzi Nehi Dekhaya Bechna Ka.
Thodasa Patience Agar Next 1-2 Weeks Ke Liye Dekha Saakte Ho Naa Bech Ke.
Then I Beleive It Can Cross Rs150.
Waise Bhi Good Stock To Be Invested For 1-2 Years or More For Good Return.

Mera Personal Opinion.
829. IPO SUSPENSE |Feb 28, 2021 08:10
Railtel 2 times hoga

In 2 year
828. RAKESH PUTHRAN |Feb 20, 2021 19:11
RAILTEL IPO is expected to have bumper listing.

Reason: With so many PSU''s expected to be disinvested in 2021. If RAILTEL follows IRFC pattern only Anchor investors will have to buy all PSU stocks on IPO till LIC disinvestment happens. So we will discuss on 26th Feb 2020 evening ,I am predicting RAILTEL GMP to go up in next week and a bumper Listing.
