Thanks to @suresh for his effort…:slightly_smiling_face:

Since the title is ‘Everything you need to know…’, I’m posting my doubt here instead of a new thread.

Can I apply for the IPO in both the Individual and the Shareholder categories?

The investor services department has mentioned,

In case Eligible HDFC Shareholders apply for Shares under both the HDFC Shareholders Reservation Portion and also in the non-reserved portion in excess of 169 Shares, their applications in both the categories will be treated as multiple applications and will be liable to be rejected.


Please also note that Bids by Eligible HDFC Shareholders in the HDFC Shareholders Reservation Portion as well as in the Retail Portion shall not be treated as multiple Bids. However, Bids by a person in the HDFC Shareholders Reservation Portion as well as in the Non-Institutional Portion (generally referred as HNI portion) shall be treated as multiple Bids and therefore liable to be rejected.

With this information I assume one could apply for 1 lot in both the categories safely… I mean his applications would not be rejected.

Could someone help in understanding the situation?

I need to understand why an AMC needs to issue an IPO. Do they want to invest the public’s accumulated money in the funds or what?

Please explain this as well. What does it mean?

From whatever I could make out if you bid under the shareholder category is less than 2 lakhs it should be fine but I am not too sure.

That means the money raised from the IPO will go to the HDFC bank and Standard Life. HDFC AMC won’t be getting anything.


I think its not HDFC Bank but HDFC and Standard Life would get the money…

My Bad, It’s HDFC and not HDFC bank.

I have an account in Zerodha and I applied for HDFC AMC IPO on 25th July through my Axis Bank account. and status I see over there is “The application has been accepted by Exchange” and my money is blocked. I didn’t get any message from NSE yet for IPO Application Number. more than 48 hours spent. Bank not giving any help for IPO. I want to know that is my application filled successfully or not? if yes then when can I get Application Number from NSE. Please help me. Thanks is Advance.

If the amount is blocked, then your application is accepted.

That’s fine. But Only problem is I didn’t received any mail or message for application number. Any idea about this?

it is an a fresh issue of equity shares but offer for sale by existing shareholders.so company will not get any money but selling shareholders.

I don’t apply through Axis Bank. My bank provides me with application number instantly but never received any email or SMS from NSE.
Don’t worry! Just see if a lien amount is present on your Axis bank account. You can also check the status after few days on share registrar’s website.


It clearly means if eligible one can apply in hdfc shareholders reserved quota PLUS maximum up to 169 share in non reserved quota.

I got message while applied for RITES LTD. That’s only why I am worried about. Anyways Thanks for your reply.
