Kushan,
When you apply for IPOs you will no get all the shares you asked for most time.

For example : Say for ABC company IPO they are offering 5 million shares.
You apply for 1000 shares. But there might be so many applicants who applied for 1000 shares or more. Also
when you add all the applicants the total amount of shares applied for might exceed 5 Million which is offered.

So in a situation like this, ABC company will allocate a certain amount of share of each applicant using a formula of their choice.
So though you applied for 1000 share you will not get 1000 but maybe only 300 will be allocated by the company.

Hope this explains. .

People have applied for the IPO in various amounts. There is only a limited no. of shares which are being issued but much more have been applied for.
Allotment is in which quantities the company gives the shares to each person who applied.
The minimum no. of shares that will be given to any applicant is 2000, therefore that is the minimum allotment.
