Reliance Power Limited is established to develop, construct and operate power projects in the domestic and international markets. It is well known for its IPO (initial public offering).
On January 15, 2008, the company attracted Rs 10,260 crore ( US $27.5 billion) of bids on the first day of its IPO, equivalent to 10.5 times the stock on offer, thereby, creating India’s IPO record. The proposed IPO was to fund the development of its six power projects across the country whose completion dates are scheduled from December 2009 to March 2014. According to this article Reliance power spent total 30 crore to push IPO campaign:
