Upcoming IPOs - All You Need to Know
The IPO process happens to be fairly prolonged and elaborate. Even in terms of filing of documents, there are various levels. The Draft Offer documents are first filed with SEBI and subsequently, the final offer documents after incorporating changes and corrections are filed with the Registrar of Companies (ROC). Before the opening of the issue, the company is also required to file the final documents with ROC.
How to go about applying for an IPO?
The IPO application has to be preceded with the opening of your demat cum trading account. IPO allotments are only done in demat form. While trading account is not mandatory for an IPO, it is required if you want to sell the IPO. IPO applications can be made offline using physical forms or online through your internet trading account.
An important aspect of the IPO application process that you need to understand is the ASBA process. Applications Supported by Blocked Amounts (ASBA), authorises the bank to block money in your bank account. When ASBA application is made for the IPO, the amount is not debited but only blocked. That means, it continues to earn interest. On the date of allotment only the amount to the extent of the allotment is debited to your account the balance freeze removed. That is how simple ASBA is and you must make the best of it.
