How to increase chances for IPO Allotment:

There are a few things you need to check before applying for the IPO. Here we recommend you to follow the below steps which will increase your chances to get the allotment in oversubscribed IPOs.

Step 1. Apply in more than 1 account for the same IPO

Do not apply with a maximum bid in just 1 account but use the multiple accounts for the subscription. You should apply via multiple IPO accounts for a high subscribed IPO. If the IPO subscribed 6 times and you applied in 6 different accounts it means you will get 1 application for sure.

The application numbers should be in line for the same. More accounts can give more chances for the allotment. In IPOs which highly oversubscribed and have a good listing gain expects IPOs with multiple accounts have more chances to have an allotment.

Step 2. Go for minimum bids, No big applications

As per the SEBI rules, the retail investors will get the allotment of the minimum shares in all the bids from minimum to maximum. We recommend that go for minimum bid only. For the oversubscribed IPOs, one should go for minimum bids with multiple accounts. That will help you to invest spare money in multiple IPOs as well.

Step 3. Apply with different application numbers

When you are applying IPOs that are going to have a huge subscription in retail one should apply with different application numbers. Do not apply in with numbers that are in one raw otherwise, you might not get the stock. if the IPO subscribed over 20 times and you applied in 6 different accounts then apply with the different numbers so in a lottery you might get a chance to have an allotment.

Step 4. Select cut off price / higher price band 

For applying for the IPO one should keep in mind that those who apply with the higher price band aka cut-off price will get a maximum chance of the allotment. We recommend you to apply with a cut-off price for the IPOs in which you want to get the allotment in case of oversubscription.

Step 5. No last moment subscription

If you have a mindset that you are going to apply for the IPO then go for it on the very first day or on the second day. If you are going to apply it on the last day but it might cause a few issues like your bank account is not responding due to HNI and QIB high subscription. It is to take care that you do not miss the good IPOs.

Step 6. Fill in the details properly

Do not hurry in filling out the IPO forms. One should fill in the details properly like the amount, name, DP id, bank details, and more. There are printed forms also available so one should go with it as well. It’s a secure way to subscribe for IPO.
