Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty closed lower by 19 points (down 0.1%).

Asian Paints and UPL were among the top gainers.

The BSE Mid Cap index and the BSE Small Cap index ended down by 1.1% and 1.2%, respectively.

Sectoral indices ended on a mixed note with stocks in the metal sector, realty sector and auto sector witnessing most of the selling pressure.

FMCG stocks, on the other hand, witnessed buying interest.

Gold prices for the latest contract on MCX were trading up by 0.2% at Rs 47,545 per 10 grams at the time of closing stock market hours on Friday.

BREAKING: It's Good Time to Invest in Gold, but Just Don't Go Blindfolded

Go Airlines Files DRHP to Raise Rs 36 Billion via IPO

Go Air has filed a draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) for a share sale to raise Rs 36 bn, as it rebrands to become an "ultra-low-cost" airline.

The Wadia group airline will use the proceeds to meet debt obligations, pay oil companies and for replacement of letter of credit to aircraft lessors for lease rental payment and future maintenance of aircraft.

The initial public offering (IPO) is managed by ICICI Securities, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley.

Wadia Group-controlled no-frills carrier GoAir has been rebranded as 'GoFirst' ahead of its proposed IPO.

The rebranding comes at a time when a large chunk of the air passenger traffic has been wiped out over the last fortnight by the second wave of covid-19 infections.

The reasons behind rebranding is to operate the carrier in an ultra-low-cost airline model, which would give it a competitive advantage over its peers, the airline said in a statement on Thursday.

An ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC) is different from a low cost carrier (LCC) as they typically operate different business models with unbundled fares which result in cheaper ticket prices.

Most Indian airlines like IndiGo, SpiceJet and AirAsia India operate on a low cost model.

How the above IPO sails through remains to be seen. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more updates from this space.
