"The Tamilnad Mercantile Bank issue is priced at 1.4 times its book value, which seems to be moderate," Abhay Doshi, Co-Founder of Unlisted Arena — a portal that tracks grey markets and deals in unlisted securities — told CNBCTV18.com.

Tamilnad Mercantile Bank's will be the third initial share sale to hit the Street within a span of three weeks, following a lull of almost three months.

Syrma shares made a strong debut in the secondary market, finishing the listing day at a premium of about 42 percent over the issue price.
