I have IDFC on stock SIP at the moment. IDFC has fixed 5th October as record date for share transfer after demerger. I understand that, if I buy IDFC after this date, I will be stuck with IDFC (My focus is to accumulate more of "IDFC Bank"). I like to know... will IDFC Bank be immediately available in the secondary market? My guess is 'no'.. It will probably have to go through an IPO first? If so, what has been the waiting period between share transfers and IPOs in the past?
