Closing Thought:

According to our point of view as the GMP of the company is in fluctuating manner we have to wait for second day premium. If the premium goes up you can apply for the IPO. At this time as the GMP is just Rs 20 and market is on top a small correction may lead to listing on discount. So, wait till second day or you can go for Shyam Metalics IPO which today GMP is Rs 150.
