The LIC IPO will go on sale on May 4, 2022, and will close on May 9, 2022.

The price band for the issue is fixed at ₹ 902-949 per share.

The public offer aims to raise a total of approximately ₹ 20,500 crores.

LIC IPO: Many Indian startups and companies have been affected by the Russia-Ukraine crisis, which has, in turn, led to massive volatility in the stock market. The IPO plans, too, faced headwinds due to the global situation. However, the much-awaited initial public offering (IPO) of the Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) is likely to open on May 4 and close on May 9, 2022. For anchor investors, the IPO opens on May 2, 2022.

The LIC IPO issue size has been reduced to ₹20,557 crores, down from an expected ₹60,000. Among the main reasons behind cutting down the size of LIC's IPO were the Ukraine-Russia crisis, the withdrawal of foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) from the Indian market, and a global increase in inflation and interest rates.
