Avoid IPO ASBA Transaction Fees

Attention!! Some banks are still charging for every IPO ASBA.

SBI, Laxmi charge NRs. 25/- per application, and Standard Charter charge Rs. 100 per application.

Recently, Jalpa issued its IPO.

IPO Issued: 4,77,90,000

Total Applications: 26,67,741

If all applications were from Laxmi Bank.

Total Charges Collected: 26,67,741 X 25 = 6,66,93,525 Which is greater than IPO value by 2 crores.

If all applications were from Standard Charter: Total Charges collected: 26,67,741 X 100 = 26,67,74,100

Standard chartered Bank would collected 5 times of the IPO amount of Jalpa.

So, make sure to Switch to Free one and avoid transaction fees.
