Verifying the PAN and LIC connection is active

You can verify that your PAN Card has been properly linked with your LIC policy in advance of applying for the IPO by checking the status of the link. Further, after you have linked your PAN Card in the aforementioned manner, you can verify the linking status via the LIC website.  

Here's a quick breakdown of how it all goes down:

Consulting with LIC representatives

To link your PAN card to your LIC policy, you can also contact your LIC agent. Nonetheless, it's a digital process that takes only a few minutes to complete. As well as assisting you in linking your PAN card, your agent will also be able to provide you with updates on the linking process.  

The Case of the Person Without a PAN Card

To apply for the IPO as a policyholder of LIC, you will need a PAN card, which you can obtain by submitting a valid application. Online PAN applications are accepted by NSDL and UTITSL. Your PAN card will be issued as soon as you fill out the required fields, attach the necessary documents, and pay the application fee. Applying for an e-PAN will expedite the process of getting a digital version of your PAN card so that you can use it to open an LIC account and submit an IPO application.

The IPO and Some Extra Facts to Consider

Initial plans for an LIC IPO were included in the Union Budget for 2020-21. Listing the issue on the markets is expected to generate proceeds of between Rs 40,000 million and Rs 1,000,000 million. There has been a lot of talk about the government's disinvestment in LIC recently. While the IPO's specifics remain unknown, the government did the right thing by signaling that current policyholders would be given priority. Current LIC policyholders were proposed to be given the opportunity to bid on 10% of the IPO's total size by the Finance Ministry. Because of this, LIC IPO policyholders have a better chance of receiving an allotment than other investors.  

That's the gist of it

Every investor who has a Demat account and a valid PAN card can apply for the IPO, though the exact date has not yet been determined. The Finance Ministry suggested allocating 10% of the IPO to current LIC policyholders, giving them priority. So, if you are already a policyholder, you have a slightly better chance of being selected for the allotment. In order to apply for the IPO whenever it opens, you will need to open a Demat account in your name (if you don't already have one) and link your PAN number to your LIC policy. All of it can be done in a few minutes via an easy-to-use online interface. The question is, "What more could you want?"
