With 2.57 times subscription and with positive action but waning GMP in the grey market, Vedant Fashions was expected to list at par or at a marginal premium at best.

The price band for the IPO was Rs.824 to Rs.866. On 16th Feb, the stock of Vedant Fashions listed on the NSE at a price of Rs.935; a robust premium of 7.91%.
