Short selling on the day of listing

Is it possible to do shorting on the day of listing of a company?

Or one should know in advance if a particular scrip is available for shorting or not on the day of listing? If yes, then what are the methods to know this information.

Yes it is possible to short a stock on the day of listing. You can short it just the same way you would short any other stock.

Intraday selling using MIS isn’t possible -

Likely until the stock’s name appears in the Equity margins page, MIS/CO won’t work for that stock.

Siva had also mentioned about it in a different thread -

Thanks for the correct information with a screensho!!! Appreciate ur efforts.

But i am amazed to see how others are giving answers so confidently that “one can shorts stocks on the day of listing like any other stocks!!!”
