SBI Card is the second biggest player in the market.

Eliciting a robust response, the initial share sale of SBI Cards and Payment Services was subscribed 22.45 times on the final day of bidding on Thursday even as the broader market sentiment remained at a low ebb on coronavirus concerns.

The Initial Public Offer (IPO) of SBI Cards, part of the country's largest public sector lender SBI, is also one of the largest share sale in recent times, both in terms of size and oversubscription.

More than 225 crore bids were received for the offer worth Rs 10,355 crore. A total of 10 crore shares were up for bidding, as per NSE data till 6.30 pm. At the upper end of the Rs 750-755 apiece price band, the sale would fetch Rs 10,355 crore.
