  1. MGL is a good company, we should apply when the IPO opens. I,m not regular with grey market these days but 1k is too low. May increase when the IPO opens.

  2. Kostak rates are around 1500 now in Jaipur and Kanpur but apart from listing gains, it looks a hold for long term. It even offers a dividend yield of 3.6%.

    • As a group, employees are doing good. On the other hand, retail investors are jumping on every ipo like there is no tomorrow. Result – IPOs are more like lotteries these days.

  3. MGL IPO basis of allotment is yet to be approved. Please visit this site after 5 pm on 29th June 2016 for further update
    (from linktime website)

    Bhai log, this is from Link Intime site. Kal sabko jaldi uthna hai, all the best

    Registrar is the perhaps the most screwed part our IPOs. Link Intime is never in time, Karvy better sounds like ‘Kar bhi’, and Share Pro ke liye to kya kahein
