This brokerage house said that since its inception, Paytm has raised an amount of 19 thousand crores. 

All this money is currently in loss. Paytm's initial public offer (IPO) of Rs 18,300 crore is the biggest IPO in the country so far. 

The company raised Rs 8,300 crore by issuing fresh equity shares and the existing shareholders and promoters sold shares worth Rs 10,000 crore.

IPO Subscribed 1.89 Times

Paytm's IPO was subscribed 1.89 times. The company had received bids for 9.14 crore shares against 4.83 crore shares. 

This was largely due to the support of Qualified Institutional Buyers (QIBs). QIB's quota in the IPO was subscribed 2.79 times. 

At the same time, the quota of retail investors was filled 1.66 times. The quota of non-institutional buyers was filled only 24%.
