IRCTC IPO – Dates, Price, Live Subscription, Reviews

About IRCTC Railway IPO: IRCTC IPO, the railways’ tourism and catering arm, could get listed as early as this financial year. The centre on Thursday filed IRCTC’s draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi).

Market sources say the government plans to offload around 12 per cent stake through the IPO. The share sale could fetch between Rs 500 crore and Rs 600 crore and help the government with its disinvestment target. The railways’ tourism and catering arm plans to offload about two crore equity shares of the face value of Rs 10 each through an offer for sale by the government.

IRCTC is the only entity authorized by the Indian railways to provide catering services to railways, online railway tickets and packaged drinking water at railway stations and trains in India, according to the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP). The CPSE has also diversified into other business segments like e-catering, executive lounges and budget hotels.

Though the listing of IRCTC IPO was planned earlier, it was postponed due to the waiver of service charge on e-ticketing by the government, after demonetization, that wiped out Rs 500 crore in annual revenue for IRCTC IPO. Later, the finance ministry had partially reimbursed this.
