The initial public offering (IPO) of India Pesticides Ltd. is slated to open for subscription on June 23, 2021 and will close on June 25, 2021.

The shares will be listed on the BSE and NSE, tentatively on July 5, 2021.
The monsoon has brought delight to India’s IPO market, which is seeing action after a two-month hiatus. Now is the opportunity for investors and traders to add stocks at the offer price. Indian companies have raised nearly $3 billion so far in 2021, the best start to a year since 2018. This can be attributed to market liquidity, aided by both foreign and retail investors. The gradually recovering economy has boosted the investor sentiment, making it an opportune time for companies to list on stock exchanges.
An EY report showed that in the main markets (i.e., BSE and NSE), there were 17 IPOs in Q4FY21 versus one in Q4FY20 and 10 in Q321. This represents an increase of 1,600% compared to Q4FY20 and an increase of 70% compared to Q3FY21..
