Coming soon!! Paytm just received approval from SEBI for IPO:

Paytm raised over 8000 crore from anchor investors… about 45 percent of the entire issue… so there certainly seems to be high demad as expected but grey market premium currently is only around 125…

Hai sir
My demat a/c is linked with south indian bank a/c
But applying upi id using bhim upi id linked to south indian bank,the application itself is getting rejected within Zerodha itself though upi id is verified.
So I have been using my icici bank upi id for applying ipo generated using icici bank’s mobile app i.e imobilepay.Have received mandate request all the times so far.But I haven’t received any ipo allotment yet.Heard using 3rd party upi will lead to rejection of ipo
Will me using icici bank upi id though demat a/c linked to south indian bank will be treated as 3rd party?

You can make IPO application using any bank account which is in your name. It need not be linked to your trading account.

The allotment date for Paytm IPO is 15th November.
