How to maximize the chance of getting share allotment?

Suppose you applied for one lot and in the case of an IPO getting oversubscribed, the chances of an investor getting share allotment decease for an individual investor and only ‘lucky’ one gets the lot.

Solution: Try applying IPO from different Demat accounts from your family members. Chances of getting the lot to rise if multiple bids are made by different members of the same family. With lucky investors getting a minimum of one bid lot so if a family of five has applied for the same IPO at a cut-off price in smaller bid lots, chances for them getting shares in the draw are better than that for one application.
