The issue was open for retail investors and for the non-retail investors; which hare predominantly the HNI / NII category and to a lesser extent the corporates and the institutions. There was a broad quota designed for each of the segments and the table below captures the allocation reservation done for each of the categories out of the total number of shares offered in the IPO. A total of 2,88,000 shares were allocated as market maker portion to Shreni Shares Ltd, which will act as a market maker to provide bid-ask liquidity on the counter post listing. Market maker action not only improves liquidity in the counter but also reduces the basis risk.

Here is a quick look at how the share allocation was made across categories in terms of the quotas available for subscription.
