“An IPO is not the end but actually the beginning”
For those who don’t know what an IPO is, in simple terms, it is the first share distributed by a company to the public. If we are to be more specific, IPO or Initial Public Offering is the process of offering shares of a private corporation to the public in a new stock issuance. This public share allows the company to raise capital from public investors while at the same time allowing the public to invest in a company with virtually no risks involved.
If you are here, you probably are interested in the upcoming IPO’s. But before we go there, let’s revise some basics.
The Process of Applying for an IPO
Now that we know what an IPO is a lot of you must be wondering how can we apply for it. But before you apply for IPO you need to have a DEMAT account. DEMAT account or Dematerizliaed is an account that is used to hold dematerialized shares that makes share trade easy for the users. After making this DEMAT account, you then have to Open a Mero Share account. After that, you can log in to the Mero share and apply for the IPO.
The complete steps for Applying for an IPO are:
- Create a DEMAT Account
- Fill up the DEMAT account form
- Submit the form
- Verify your DEMAT account
- Create Mero Share Account
- Apply a form for CRN number at the bank where you registered your DEMAT account
- Go to Mero Share web portal of CDSC
- Fill up the form using your Email, Phone number, DPID, and Client ID
- Set up password and Pin
- Apply for IPO
- Log in to Mero Share Web Portal
- Go to my ASBA
- Click on Apply
- Click on the Company whose IPO you want to Buy
- Fill up the forms.
Once you complete all of these steps, you will be included on the list of investors for the IPO of the company you registered for. If you are a beginner, it may take a while for you to do all of this but once you are done, you can invest whenever you want using the Mero Share web portal.
The Benefits of Applying for IPO
If you are thinking about why should you invest in an IPO account, it is because IPO is the safest place to invest in the share market and the easiest as well.
Easy to Start
All you need is a DEMAT and a Mero Share account and you are good to apply for an IPO. Furthermore, once you have these two accounts, you can invest anytime and for as long as you want.
The next benefit is that you don’t have to invest a lot of money in this. The IPO’s issues at the rate of Rs 100 per unit. You can apply for an IPO at the rate of Rs 10 per unit for 1000 Unit but in this case, there is a high chance of being oversubscribed and only getting 10 units which are Rs 100.
Low Risk, High Return
The best benefit is that you don’t invest much – around Rs 1000 and the chances of getting an IPO are rather good. Once you get an IPO your value may increase up to 1500 just from investing Rs 100. While your value can decrease since you don’t invest much anyways, there is less risk of a loss.
With this being said, a lot of you might be willing to invest in the upcoming IPO’s.
