Trends of key parameters:



How much to apply?

When we observe the current scenario, investors have shown a high level of confidence, which is shown by the huge demand for the last few months. Almost all of the stocks have been trading significantly higher than they were before lockdown.

When we look at the current trend of IPO in the market, we see that more than 25 lakhs of investors have been applying in the recent issue’s which is a huge number when we compare it with past applicants. This shows that, even if a quarter of this number applied for the issue of Nyadi Hydropower Limited, the issue will be oversubscribed.

Since the “10 kitta rule” still holds true for IPO; 209,250 applicants will be lucky enough to get the 10-unit shares of Nyadi Hydropower Limited. So, it is advisable to apply only 10 units.
