Shares of Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) made a remarkable stock market debut on November 29, listing with a premium of more than 56%, against the issue price of ₹32.

The stock listed at ₹50, up 56.25% from the issue price on both the BSE and NSE. It further rallied 74% to ₹55.70 on both the benchmark indices. The company commanded a market valuation of ₹14,460.17 crore during the morning trade.

The Initial Public Offering (IPO) of Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency was subscribed 38.80 times on the last day of bidding on Thursday.

The IPO had a fresh issue of up to 40,31,64,706 equity shares and an offer for sale of up to 26,87,76,471 equity shares. The price range for the offer was ₹30-32 a share. This was the first public issue by a public sector enterprise after Life Insurance Corporation's IPO in May last year.

Proceeds from the fresh issue will be used for augmenting IREDA's capital base to meet its future capital requirements and onward lending.
