NSE IPO awaiting approval from SEBI, CEO confirms

New Delhi, April 16 (IANS) – The National Stock Exchange (NSE) is eagerly awaiting approval from SEBI for its upcoming IPO, according to MD and CEO Ashish Kumar Chauhan. Chauhan, who made headlines with BSE’s IPO in 2016, took over as NSE’s CEO in July 2022, setting the stage for another major milestone.

Chauhan revealed, “Once it gets a green signal from SEBI, we will get our draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) done and submit it.” The successful listing of BSE’s IPO in 2016 has set high expectations for NSE’s upcoming public offering.

Investors reaped the benefits of 13 out of 78 IPOs listed in the fiscal year 2023-24, with the S&P BSE IPO index jumping 69 percent in FY24. Chauhan hinted at more IPOs in the coming year if the market continues its upward trend, emphasizing the importance of seamlessly running India’s largest stock exchange.

With 55.51 percent of NSE’s shareholding held by the public as of December 31, 2023, the exchange remains a key player in the Indian financial market. Chauhan’s leadership and strategic vision position NSE for further success in the fast-paced and ever-evolving world of stock trading.
