LIC IPO - Check Issue Date, Price, Lot Size & Details

Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) is the largest player in the life insurance segment in India. Its size is so significant that every 3 out of 4 life insurance policies sold are from LIC. The insurance giant has been around since 1956 and currently serves over 250 million people - more than a sixth of India’s population. 

LIC is a state-owned company and is 100% owned by the Ministry of Finance.  


The Government of India is planning to divest up to a 10% stake in LIC through the issue of fresh shares following its plan to systematically divest state-run corporations. The issue is expected to be for INR 90,000 - 100,000 crore (or $13.5 billion) which would make it the biggest IPO listing in India. Some experts have labeled this to be “Saudi Aramco of India”. 

While the date of the issue is still unknown, we can expect it to go live by March 2022. 

LIC IPO - Key Facts

In the 2020 fiscal year alone, LIC collected Rs. 1.78 trillion in the first-year premium, 25.17 percent higher than the previous year.

LIC reported a 17.5 percent growth in the value of the new business. Some private insurers in India like HDFC Life, SBI Life, and ICICI Pru Life are growing faster than LIC due to their small size but they do not have the competitive edge that LIC has.

LIC has a network of over 1 million active agents spread across the country which is significantly larger than any other life insurer in the country. It is because of these agents and over 3000 offices in the country that LIC is able to cater to its large customer base.

Why Invest in LIC IPO?

These are among the primary reasons why investors should consider investing in this IPO –

  • The Life Insurance Corporation of India is the biggest player in the insurance sector in India and has the backing of the government, making it a stable business when compared with other insurance aggregators.

  • Investing in LIC would favor investors significantly. The company recorded stock market profits of more than Rs. 10,000 crores in this June quarter. Investors can expect healthy dividends from the stock.

  • LIC will adopt a corporate structure with independent directors. This should increase the performance of the company, thus increasing its value and consolidating its position in the market.
