Their participation will be through the anchor book allocation of the issue. Vodafone Idea FPO opens for subscription on April 18 but the anchor book allocation is slated for announcement earlier than that. It will likely happen on Tuesday. The same is offered on a discretionary basis. The report quoted one of the sources as saying there is a strong interest in both foreign and domestic institutions for the offer.

However, there is no official response so far from any of these entities on this report about their investment intentions.

Among the dates that investors should keep an eye on is the start of the subscription period on April 18 and thereafter the closing date, which is April 22.
