The public issue, which would be through a 100 per cent book building route, has a green shoe option of Rs 450 crore (Rs 4.50 billion) and the bank has fixed a price band of Rs 255 to Rs 295 per equity share, ICICI Bank said in a release in Mumbai.

The bank had planned to reserve 10 per cent of the issue size for its existing retail investors. However, the Securities and Exchange Board of India rejected it on the grounds that the proposal was not in keeping with the existing guidelines of a public offer.
