Government Accords 'Navratna' Status to IREDA

The share price of the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) surged over 10%  after the PSU company was granted ‘Navratna status' from the Department of Public Enterprises.

The shares opened at Rs186.20 apiece on the BSE and went on to touch an intraday high of Rs191.50.

After the entity has gained ‘Navratna status’, the government-owned business will be able to move more quickly to carry out its goals and ambitions. Also, government clearance will no longer be needed for several JVs in India and abroad under IREDA. The status comes after IREDA reported robust Q4 results.
