As of 11:44 am, IRFC shares were trading at Rs 65.85, reflecting an impressive gain of 18.12%. Notably, a staggering 30 crore shares were traded on the stock exchanges by mid-day.

IRFC is gearing up for its 36th Annual General Meeting scheduled for September 22. In August, reports surfaced indicating that the Indian government was planning to reduce its 86% stake in the PSU through an Offer-for-Sale (OFS) to comply with Sebi’s Minimum Public Shareholding norm.

In its June Standalone quarterly results, IRFC reported a robust 18% year-on-year increase in revenue, reaching Rs 6,679.17 crore. However, profits witnessed a slight dip, declining by 6.34% to Rs 1,556.57 crore.

Investors in IRFC have seen substantial returns, with the stock delivering an impressive 134% gain in the last six months.

It’s essential to note that while these developments are encouraging, it’s always advisable for investors to consult certified experts and conduct thorough research before making any investment decisions. The stock market can be unpredictable, and informed decisions are key to navigating its fluctuations successfully. As IRFC continues to make waves in the market, all eyes are on its upcoming Annual General Meeting and the government’s divestment plans, which could further impact its stock performance.
