With multiple IPOs being launched in India in the last few years, these tend to attract significant media attention and interest. Many IPOs see large-scale subscriptions from both retail investors and large institutional investors. The IPO allotment status is used by market experts as an indicator of the overall investor interest levels that the company has managed to attract in the market. Companies usually share IPO calendars to keep investors informed about the chronology of IPO events. Post the IPO allotment, the company’s shares are listed on the stock exchange for trading.
IPO allotment generally takes 7 days from the IPO offer release date. This may take longer for small-cap IPOs since the subscription threshold limit may not necessarily be achieved within a short duration.
IPO allotment status is generally updated on the IPO registrar’s website. Subscribers or bidders must provide their PAN number or IPO application number to check the allotment status. This information can also be found on the stock exchange websites. Allotment information is also sent to applicants via email or SMS notifications by BSE, NSE, NSDL, or CDSL.
If an investor is allotted IPO shares, he/she must receive a Confirmatory Allotment Note (CAN) within 15 days from the IPO issue closure as per SEBI guidelines. If not allotted shares, the refund has to be processed within 15 days from the issue closure date.
No, IPO allotment is not based on who applied first. It is allotted as per the response received from investors. If the IPO does not attract investor interest and remains under-subscribed, there are higher chances of allotment for those who apply. In the case of oversubscription, the IPO allotment is calculated as per the number of shares available for retail investors divided by the minimum lot size.
IPO share allotment is guaranteed since it depends on the level of subscription and investor interest received.
