To encourage employee participation, the bank has allocated Rs 12.5 crore worth of shares at a discounted price of Rs 5 each on the final issue price. Excluding the employee reservation, the offer is open to the public. Half of the net issue has been reserved for qualified institutional buyers, while high net-worth individuals (non-institutional investors) have been allocated 15 percent. Retail investors are given 35 percent of the net issue.

Investors can bid for a minimum of 250 equity shares and in multiples of 250 shares thereafter. Retail investors can invest a minimum of Rs 15,000 (equivalent to 250 shares) and a maximum of Rs 1,95,000 (3,250 shares), as the regulations prohibit them from investing more than Rs 2 lakh in the IPO.
