How much investment is needed?
IPOs are very competitive as there is a large number of investors who want to buy these IPOs and the number of shares companies provide is very less in number. So, the chance of one getting the allotted share is slim. But in case you are lucky enough and get allotted IPO then also you will usually not get more than 10 units which are Rs. 1000.
So, you will need to invest around Rs 1000 + C-ASBA charge. Every bank charges different C-ASBA charges so I suggest you check the link below to know what amount your bank charges.
Are they any hidden charges when you apply for IPO?
No, the only extra charge you will have to endure is the C-ASBA charge from the bank which is non-refundable. In case you are not allotted for IPO then the RS. 1000 will be refunded to your Bank account but the C-ASBA charge will not.
Hope this answers your question on how to buy IPO in Nepal.
