The total shares floated by Manushi Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha Limited is 393,750 units, of which only 368,593 units are available to the general public after the allocation of shares to staff and mutual fund.

If we see the recently concluded IPO of Manakama Smart Laghubitta and Union Life, more than 21 lakh applicants applied for the company IPO and we assume that the same or even more craze prevails in Manushi Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha's IPO too. Since the 10 kitta rule exists for IPO; 3,937 applicants will be lucky enough to get the shares of Manushi Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha Limited.

Hence, if the same number of applicants (or more) who applied for the Manakamana Smart and Union Life’s IPO apply for this issue then there is a high probability of lottery for 10 units. Since the minimum unit is 10, it is advisable to apply only 10 units in the IPO issue of Manushi Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha Limited.
