On why railway stocks are ascending today, Derivative & Technical Analyst at Motilal Oswal said, “Railway stocks are rising after the new plan of the Ministry of Railways to seek Cabinet approval for a ₹5.25 lakh crore investment program during fiscal years 2024-31 to improve rail connectivity to mining areas, cement plants, and consumption points, based on the PM Gati Shakti National Master Plan.”
This is a positive development and it will have medium to long term impact on railway stocks like IRFC, RBNL, Railtel, IRCTC, etc. In fact, one company'[s benefit would trickle down to other company’s financials,” Motilal Oswal expert added.
