invest in LIC IPO?
If you want
to invest in LIC just for listing Gains then you should go for it, but if you
are thinking of long term investment then you should avoid as we have seen that
because of lock down most growing companies have shifted its sale from offline
mode to online mode but according to the analysis we have seen that LIC does not
pays much attention to its online segment which may result in reduction of its
profit in long term.
