The board of One97 Communications, the parent firm of Paytm, has given its in-principle approval for the $3 billion (nearly ₹22,000 crore) initial public offer, according to sources.

The Board took up the matter for discussion in its meeting on Friday.

“The Board has given in-principle approval for the IPO. The company expects to raise around ₹21,000-₹22,000 crore,” a source said, adding that the company is eyeing a timeline of July for the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) and October-December quarter for the IPO.
