The government aiming to reach its divestment target will launch its fourth tranche of Bharat 22 ETF on October 3. The issue will help the government collect a total of Rs. 8,000 crore.
The previous issuances of Bharat 22 ETF have also been successful with an overall mop up to the government to the tune of Rs. 35,900 crore.
For the anchor investors, the issue will launch on October 3, while for retail and institutional investors, the very next day. The investors would get a 3 per cent discount over the issue price.
