From Life Insurance Company and UTI Mutual Fund to a burger giant rivaling McDonald’s— there is a whole range of companies that are looking to get listed on the Indian stock exchanges in the coming months.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, markets witnessed weeks of choppy trade and sell-off. Companies were wary of pushing ahead with their IPO plans, and hence we have seen only 3 IPOs so far this year - including SBI Cards and Rossari Biotech. However, they fared better than what the street had expected.

After a cautious few months, the IPO market is gathering steam again. LIC has been the recent one to nominate Edelweiss Financial Services Ltd and Deloitte India as its pre-IPO advisors.

Here’s a list of IPOs coming up this year:
