The highly anticipated upcoming IPO of 2022 is finally here. We are talking about the LIC IPO by Life Insurance Corporation of India. It will be the biggest IPO of all time surpassing Paytm’s ₹18,300 crore IPO.

The government will sell its 3.5% stake in LIC via this IPO. Earlier it was 5% but due to the Russia-Ukraine war and other geological tensions it has come down by 9.4 crore shares. Also due to this, the LIC IPO which was supposed to open in March 2022 got delayed.

LIC Company officials will meet on 26th April 2022 i.e. today to discuss the IPO details like share price, lot size, discounts, etc. You can check How to Link Your LIC Policy with PAN to apply for LIC IPO Quota?
