Subscription status of HNI / NII Portion

The HNI portion got subscribed 15.99X (getting applications for 5,941.46 lakh shares against the quota of 371.68 lakh shares).

Bulk of the funded applications and corporate applications, come in on the last day of the IPO, and that was visible as the overall HNI / NII portion added to its heft on the last day of the IPO. Apart from the QIB portion, even HNIs saw good traction on the last day.

Now the NII/HNI portion is reported in two parts viz. bids below ₹10 lakhs (S-HNI) and bids above ₹10 lakhs (B-HNI).
