  1. Dear Sir.

    I like all your articles on all sectors. Keep it up.
    Can you please check is there any typing mistake in above article ?
    “Company has shown significant improvement and growth in margins in last 3 years. Its margins were at 12.7% in FY2019 Vs —> “0.5%” <—–in FY2021."

  2. I can call it in-depth and brief analysis. Convinced with your take and tempted to invest up to maximum eligible limit of individual investors. Will you please advise me whether chances of allotment are more if I apply for minimum marketable lot or Rs2 Lakhs?

    1. Hello Ramakrishna, Thanks for the comments. The so called allotment luck depends on how many times it would get oversubscribed. If it is say 1.5x or 2x, then allotment chances would be higher. But if any IPO gets oversubscribed 5x or 10x, it is difficult to get subscription
