LIC IPO Apply Now, Overview, GMP, Price Band Share Price

LIC IPO Date, Pre-Overview, GMP, Price Band, Share Price: When it comes to Life Insurance, the very first name that strikes the mind is LIC. Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) is the largest and oldest Insurance provider in the country owned by the Government of India. After the budget speech for FY 2020-2021, it is expected that LIC IPO would be the biggest IPO of the decade. Nirmala Sitharaman, Union Finance Minister, in her budget speech proposed the launch of the IPO of LIC and since then potential investors are having their eyes on the launch of the IPO.  


Currently, the government is having a 100% stake in the company and through this IPO company’s 10% stake will be sold as a part of the disinvestment of the Government’s share in the Insurance company. Potential investors have to wait as there is still some work remaining in the Pre-IPO phase. There is not much information available regarding the biggest IPO as the company has not submitted its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) for IPO as of now. The government has selected Deloitte as the Pre-IPO Transaction Advisor for the IPO.  

The company has assured employees that they will not be affected by the IPO launch and also the policyholders might get a reserved quota in the upcoming IPO. The IPO issue size might be Rs.80000 to Rs.100000 crores as per speculations. However, all the confusion regarding this IPO is expected to be clarified soon once the company will submit its draft prospectus regarding the launch of the IPO.
