  1. Flop show, poor subscription in two days. HNIs are just not interested. There will be some more applications on last day to complete the requirement but there is clearly no buzz around this IPO.

    Stay away as there may be selling pressure on listing day!!

  2. CreditAccess Grameen GMP as on 10th August 2018

    Premium range – 10 to 15 per share
    Kostak rate – 200/- per application (valid before listing)

  3. why almost all Brokers said ‘Subscribe’, when there is visible no listing gain & only long-term pain is waiting? are they say so because of ‘Paid Preview’ / Free-Advise to destroy Retail Investors’ money?
