Do you have an LIC policy? Here’s how to take part in the upcoming IPO

Government will launch the IPO of the country’s largest insurer in the fourth quarter

The price band for the LIC IPO is ₹902-949 per equity share.

The government will launch the initial public offering (IPO) of the country’s largest insurer, Life Insurance Corporation (LIC), in the fourth quarter.

The listing will be crucial for the government to meet its disinvestment target. It aims to mop up 1.75 lakh crore in the current fiscal.

As per the government’s proposed plan, up to 10 per cent of the LIC IPO issue size would be reserved for policyholders. Last week, the insurer asked its policyholders to update their PAN, so that they can participate in the IPO.

“In order to participate in any such public offering, policyholders will need to ensure that their PAN details are updated in the corporation’s records. Further subscribing to any public offering in India is only possible if you have a valid DEMAT account,” LIC had said in a public notice.
