Trading of these units is expected to commence on or around December 24 on NSE and BSE exchanges. The Institutional Placement launched on December 15 and witnessed strong demand from both existing as well as new institutional investors — both global and domestic, pension funds, insurers, and alternative asset managers, it further said.
