I have Airtel shares in 2 demat accounts. I have got RE shares in both. Both accounts have same PAN. My question is, can I apply for rights shares from both these demats? Will it be considered as duplicate entry or it is fine to apply?

The current RE price is about 205, more than the intrinsic value (681-535 = 146) by 40%. The actual share price would be 205+535 = 740 if someone buys RE and apply through ASBA. I don't see any sense.
People with RE should sell them directly.

People are less likely to buy RE even if price comes down to 160 also. Then also it will cost them about 695. Promoters will surely subscribe the issue, due to which RE will become shares in a month. The share price is likely to fall due to dilution.

Nikk, what you wrote makes sense.. you are very right here in your analysis

@Nikk, You don't have to pay complete 740Rs (205+535) now.
For now you will have to pay 338.75 Rs (205 + 133.75 (25% of rights issue price)) If you are interested in RE and remaining amount 401.25 Rs (75% of rights issue price) must be paid based on calls by the Company.
It works like pay down payment and pay EMIs like any other loans.
You can pay the down payment of 338.75 Rs and remaining amount 401.25 Rs in 2 installments.
So people with less fund can benefit.

Dear Friends,

I have few questions regarding Airtel Rights Issue.

1. Can I apply for more shares other than the number of RE transferred to my account? Let say I have been allotted 35 REs, Can I apply for 500.

2. How retail category for rights issue will be considered?
Eg. 500 x 133.75 should be less than 200000 Rs.
or 500 x 535 should be less than 200000 Rs.

3. While bidding at what price should I bid. i.e can I bid for 134 instead of 133.75.

Your response will be highly valuable.

@NitinNikhil Ji, Yes you can buy 500 RE shares in open market. You should spend 500×197=98500. This can be possible on or before 14th. Finally you got 500 RE shares. All 500 RE is available in your Demat a/c. Now after 14th, before 21st you should pay Rights price to 500 RE shares. (500*133.75 =66875) + (35×133.75 = 4681.25).

🤔 if you bought that 1000 shares before record date, Check your Demat a/c. Most probably you got 72 RE shares in your Demat a/c.

I am allocated 3 RE, this is the first time I am dealing with REs. I understand if I hold them after 14th, I have to pay 133 immediately and the remaining 402 (approx) on the company fixed dates.

But what if I want to buy them say I want to buy 10 more REs. So I will buy 7 more now and follow the same process above.

If I have 10 RE after 14 October and I apply for 25 shares via ASBA.
I assume I be alloted 10 shares against 10 RE.
Will I be considered for the excess 15 shares if the rights issues goes undersubsribed?

Most probably you may get additional 1 or 2, Remaining amount will be returned or Unhold.

Earlier in reliance rights issue my friend and I got 1 extra Rights share. We applied extra share through ASBA.

First time dealing with RE shares, please help. I have 100 shares of Airtel and I received 7 AIRTEL-RE-BE shares today in my demat. In my Zerodha holdings, it is already show a profit of 1400Rs against these 7 RE shares. Can I simply sell these and realize this profit?? Because that is pretty much the gain which I would probably get when finally these 7 RE becomes real shares which is probably after a month or so. Please suggest :)

@RABHAT Hold these RE shares for longterm. Others didn't getting at free. If you hold these RE after 14th Oct, you have to pay 133 per share through ASBA or Online. That 133 is only 25% of 535. Remaining 75% you have to pay in future stages.

If you want to buy more RE shares you should spare current RE price i.e 210 or more. My suggestion just hold for longterm. Pay rights price at prescribed intervals specified by company.
5.4. RajK  Oct 7, 2021 23:58 I Like It. | Report Abuse
@KAILASH SINGH BISHT ji RE buying and selling should be on or before 14th. After 14th, before 21st you should pay the rights price per RE share based on the holding.

If you are holding RE after 14th and cant able to pay the Rights price (i.e 133) on or before 21st, all holding shares will be going to loose. So be cautious while playing with Rights issue.

By 21st you paid rights price and next time 2nd call, you forget the payment, that time also you will be going to loose all RE shares. Take care.

Conversion of RE share to 25% of regular share price(535) can be possible only after paying 133 on or before 21st. Remaining 75% of(535) can be paid in future dates fixed by company. After 100% paying on prescribe intervals, then only RE will be convert to Regular Share.

Airtel RE trading set to commence

The trading in rights entitlement (RE) of Bharti Airtel will commence on Tuesday and will remain open till October 14. Under this window, existing shareholders will get to sell their RE, while those who wish to participate in the Rs 21,000-crore rights offering will get to buy the permit to apply. One RE gives a shareholder right to subscribe to one share in the rights issue programme, which will remain open till October 21. Analysts expect one RE to trade in the range between Rs 180-200 per unit. Shares of Airtel last closed at Rs 676, while the rights issue price is Rs 535 per share. ETFs will sell their REs as they are not allowed to subscribe for shares in the rights issue. Last year, trading in Reliance Industries RE had seen huge investor interest.
