IRFC IPO: How To Apply
Promoters play a very important role in raising much-needed business revenue.
Apply For IRFC IPO IPO Through ASBA
First, you should know what ASBA is. ASBA stands for Restricted Application Support. It is an application by the bank to apply for an IPO.
You apply with ASBA through the bank because initially, the bank covers the cost of purchasing the IPO. This amount is deducted from your account only after receiving IPO share shares in your Demat account.
All the major banks in the country are expanding the ASBA center. There are about 30 banks on the list, some of which are IDBI Bank Limited, Citi Bank, Punjab National Bank, etc.
The center may be expanded once they have been authorized to do so. These banks block the corresponding amount until the IPO allocation process is finalized.
Now, most of you are probably thinking about how to use the IRFC IPO IPO with ASBA. The process can be completed online or offline for your convenience.
Apart from this, you can also bid for an IRFC IPO IPO through your stockbroker’s online portal (such as Zerodha, Edelweiss, Motilal Oswal, etc.)
