As per the latest data available on NSE website the Reliance power IPO has been oversubscribed by 23 times by now. Money control says that the Retail portion has been subscribed 6 times. We were discussing in yesterday's post about the payment option to be chosen for applying to reliance power IPO. Now since we have more clarity on the subscription data , it looks that applying through part payment option would be a good idea as your capital investmnet would be lesser ensuring higher return on your investment.
However, it is sad to say that the company has not clarified if it going to allot fully paid up shares to those applying for partly paid up shares in case of oversubscription. So the clouds of uncertainty are still there. The company reserves the right to allot you partly paid shares and call for the balance amount at a later date stipulated in the prospectus. Hence, one may not get shares before listing and may be reduced to a mere viewer seeing others booking listing gains. So if you are willing to take the risk choose the option of part payment. But if you want to be on doubly sure that you sell on listing day, paying full amount is a safe option. I am going to take a risk and apply through partly paid option. Meanwhile Grey market is qouting a premium in the range of Rs. 290-310 on the offer price of Rs. 450 with hardly any takers at that premium.
