The ₹819 crore ($112 million) initial public offering (IPO) of state-run RailTel Corp received tremendous response from investors. And, now all investor’s eyes are waiting for the allotment date. The basis of the allotment of the IPO will be announced on February 23.

RailTel is a government-owned information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure provider firm and India's largest neutral telecom infrastructure provider. This was the seventh initial public offering this year and second by the Ministry of Railways after it recently pared stake in Indian Railway Finance Corporation IPO— which listed at a 4% discount last month.


The IPO was subscribed 42 times and generated bids worth more than ₹259.42 crore against the offer size of 6.12 crore shares. The portion of the IPO reserved for retail investors was subscribed 16.78 times, whereas the qualified institutional buyer was subscribed 65.29 times.

It would be worth watching if this high demand will reflect as listing gains on February 26, when the stock will hit the bourses. The shares were trading at a premium of ₹25-30 a piece in the grey market, ahead of the listing. However, the grey market is not an official measure of the market premium. But it is a fair indicator of demand for the shares in the market.

However, after this stellar response that RailTel IPO has garnered, one thing is certain — not all investors will get the same amount of shares that they had subscribed for.
