Meanwhile nearly all brokerage houses have a subscribe recommendation on the IPO. The IPO opened for subscription today, 11 October 2017. GIC IPO is India's second-largest public offer since Coal India's Rs 15,200 crore and Reliance Power's Rs 10,123.2 crore share sale - which was at the second spot before GIC IPO, now slipped to the third place.

The GIC IPO is the first by a non-life state-run insurer to offer a share sale.

General Insurance Corporation (GIC) is the largest reinsurer in India by gross premiums accepted in the fiscal ended March 2017 (FY2017), accounting for almost 60% of the premiums ceded by Indian insurers to reinsurers in the fiscal year. The company proposes to utilise the proceeds towards augmenting the capital base to support growth of the business and to maintain current solvency levels as also general corporate purposes. "While compared to valuation of its peers it is priced attractive but valuations as such for the company is high and it doesn't make sense for someone to hold on to the stock unless one is ready to wait for 2 to 3 years, as in the short-term it's not going to make money due to valuations".
