FAQs on RailTel IPO Allotment

1. How do I know if I have received RailTel Allotment or not?

We have discussed the steps for the same above.

2. What happens to the IPO amount in my bank account?

After applying for an IPO, the required amount is blocked for use from your account. Hence the money is still showing in your balance but is blocked for use. 

3. Can we know the RailTel listing price?

Knowing the price at which the shares will list is almost impossible. The companies do have an issue price. But the listing price depends on the grey market transactions. Say the issue price was around Rs 200, and it was trading at a grey market premium of Rs 20 then we can expect the shares to list at around Rs 220. However, nothing can be said with certainty.

4. What is the grey market?

Grey market for an IPO is an unofficial market where the transactions that take place are ‘over-the-counter’ (OTC) in nature. They are mostly are dealt with in cash. Because of its unofficial and OTC nature, there are no rules around it. The transactions are done among a smaller group of people. So the RailTel listing price will depend on the grey market premium. The listing premium/discount is higher/lower than the issue price.

5. How are the RailTel shares being allotted?

If RailTel IPO is oversubscribed, the shares will be distributed proportionately among investors so that each investor gets a minimum of one lot. This is done on a lottery basis, so there cannot be a guarantee that you will get the shares.  It is possible that few investors do not get any shares at all, in case of over-subscription.

6. Why did I not get RailTel allotment?

There are multiple reasons why an investor may not get the allotment:

  • Pure Luck: As mentioned earlier, shares are allotted on a lottery basis. In case of oversubscription, not everyone will be assigned shares.
  • Information mismatch: If your RailTel IPO application has any incomplete information or there is a mismatch in your credentials
  • If your bid price is not within the price band

7. Will my money come back if I don’t get RailTel IPO allotment?

If you don’t get the allotment in RailTel IPO, the amount will be unblocked, and you will be able to use the amount in your bank account. 

8. When will RailTel IPO get listed?

RailTel shares will get listed on BSE and NSE on February 26, 2021 tentatively.
