A fast-track issuer merely has to file the offer document with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) before the issue opens rather than wait for regulatory clearances for each capital issue.
Large listed companies with an average free float market capitalization of Rs10,000 crore or more and which have been traded on the bourses for more than three-year, with not more than 5% outstanding investor complaints against them, are eligible for fast-track clearances. The company has appointed 7 merchant bankers including Royal Bank of Scotland Plc, Deutsche Bank AG, Kotak Mahindra Capital Co. Ltd, Standard Chartered Bank Plc, Citigroup Global Markets India Pvt. Ltd.
