I have not managed to submit bids for this public offering of MedPlus Health using my current UPI handle. What is the reason behind this?

What is a cut-off price? Can I bid for an initial public offering at this price?

A cut-off price is a price point at which the equity shares of MedPlus Health or of other companies get listed on the share market. This is a previously determined price and is mainly decided during the allotment stage of an IPO. In addition, if you submit a bid at this price, it suggests that you are willing to apply for the public issue of MedPlus Health at this price point. Also, applying at a cut-off price enhances your chances of receiving an IPO allotment.

Is it possible to submit multiple bids for a public issue using a single PAN?

No, it is not possible to submit multiple bids for a public issue using one PAN. IPO applications get rejected in such cases as per the existing rules. Hence, you will fail to receive an allotment for this public offering of MedPlus Health or any other firm.

Do I need to bear any extra charges to apply for this public issue of MedPlus Health via Angel One platform?

No, you need not bear any extra charges to bid for this public issue of MedPlus Health using the Angel One platform.

How can I ensure allotment for this MedPlus Health IPO?

It is not possible to guarantee allotment for any public issue, irrespective of the company you choose to apply for. In the event of an oversubscription, which is a common affair, the allocation of shares is done via a lottery system. So, it is not probable to provide any conviction in this regard.
A point to keep in mind here is that the Angel One platform only permits you to apply for an IPO, and it does not offer any assurance regarding its allocation.
Nevertheless, you can increase your odds by keeping the below-mentioned points in mind –
● Applying at the cut-off price
● Using a Demat Account linked with your PAN
● Confirm that your bank account and UPI ID are linked through a single PAN, and failing to keep that can lead to rejection.
For instance, person X has applied for the MedPlus Health IPO via his Demat Account but person Y’s UPI ID. In such cases, the application can get rejected due to –
● Person Y’s UPI ID is not linked with X’s PAN
● Person X’s Demat account is not linked with Y’s bank account

Even after submitting the final application for MedPlus Health IPO, the required funds are not debited yet. What can the reason?

The reason for the IPO related funds not being debited even after submitting the bids is that banks do not release funds related to a public issue just after you submit a bid. Alternatively, they will block this amount momentarily, and once you get an allotment, they will debit it. On the other hand, if you do not receive an IPO allotment or your UPI mandate expires, banks will release this amount.

What are the plausible reasons behind the rejection of my IPO application for MedPlus Health?

Probable reasons behind the rejection of your IPO application for MedPlus Health are –
● Failing to ensure that your Demat account, UPI ID, and bank account are connected with the same PAN
● Entering an incorrect UPI PIN while approving the mandate
For example, if you use your Demat account to apply for this public issue and use your friend’s UPI ID to make payment. In that case, your application can get rejected –
● If your PAN and your friend’s UPI ID are not connected
● If your Demat account is not linked with your friend’s bank account
