According to the DRHP, the government will sell 31 crore equity shares of LIC. A part of the issue is reserved for the anchor investors while at least 10 percent is reserved for the anchor investors.

The government is looking to raise Rs 63,000 crore to meet the disinvestment target of Rs 78,000 crore by way of selling 5 percent stake in the life insurance firm.

In the IPO, the government is making an offer for sale and there will not be a fresh issue of shares.
