Grey market premium fizzled out ahead of the listing

Although the high number of subscriptions showed an excellent demand for its shares, just days ahead of the listing, the company's grey market premium fizzled nearly 50%, amid the high market volatility this week.

The shares that were earlier commanding a premium of ₹150-160 were significantly down to ₹70-80 a share.
