The NSE has set up nation-wide network for trading whereby members can trade remotely from their offices located all over the country. The NSE trading network spans various cities and towns across India.
NSE decided to offer this infrastructure for conducting online IPOs through the Book Building process. NSE operates a fully automated screen based bidding system called NEAT IPO that enables trading members to enter bids directly from their offices through a sophisticated telecommunication network.
Book Building through the NSE system offers several advantages:
- The NSE system offers a nation wide bidding facility in securities
- It provides a fair, efficient & transparent method for collecting bids using latest electronic trading systems
- Costs involved in the issue are far less than those in a normal IPO
The IPO market timings are from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. On the last day of the IPO, the session timings can be further extended on specific request by the Book Running Lead Manager.
