Investors responded enthusiastically to the Rs 9,375-crore offer, subscribing 38.25 times between July 14 and 16. Qualified institutional buyers (QIB) received 51.79 percent of the subscriptions, followed by non-institutional investors with 32.96 percent, and retail buyers with 7.45 percent.

Anchor book, which is a part of QIB category, also garnered a strong response as the company raised Rs 4,197 crore from anchor investors, at a price of Rs 76 on July 13. Now, all eyes are on the share allocation, which is expected to be finalised today, as per the schedule available in the RHP. Here are two options, through which investors can check their application status:
