Rail stocks in mixed cues as FM hikes allocation to Rs 2.4 lakh crore in Budget 2023

Rail stocks give mixed cues as FM hikes allocation to Rs 2.4 lakh crore in Budget 2023

Railway stocks experienced heightened demand following the presentation of the Budget 2023-24 by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, as she announced an increase in capital expenditure allocation for the railway sector to Rs2.4 lakh crore rupees.

The move will benefit all EPC-based companies, as well as product companies in waggons, signalling, communication, and bearings, among other things.

Following the announcement, some of the stocks rallied. Stocks that rallied include KEC International (+2.20%), with over 2% gain. Siemens (+0.98%) also joined the rally with about 1% gain.

However, Titagarh Wagons (-4.99%) plunged about 5%. RVNL’s (-3.55%) scrip dipped nearly 4% so far in today’s trade.

Railways is a key driver of the PM GatiShakti scheme as well as the National Logistics Policy.

The 2023-24 budget saw a substantial allocation to the railway sector, with the government allocating a capital outlay of Rs2.40 lakh crore, a nine-fold increase from the 2013-14 budget. This substantial allocation aligns with industry expectations and has resulted in a surge in stock prices for railway-related companies such as Titagarh, IRCTC, RVNL, and IRCON, according to Nisha Harchekar, the Head of Equity Research at Fintoo.
