Why Is Olectra Greentech's Stock Rising On The Back Of The Interim Budget Announcement?

Olectra Greentech, a key player in the electric vehicle (EV) sector, saw its shares surge following Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s announcement in the 2024-25 Interim Budget. The budget focuses on expanding the EV ecosystem, including enhancing manufacturing and charging infrastructure and introducing a scheme to promote green growth.

What Happened? In India, one of the fastest-growing economies globally, the push for 30% EV usage by 2030 marks a significant step towards balancing economic growth with environmental sustainability. Olectra Greentech’s recent performance mirrors this ambition.

In the third quarter of FY 23-24, the company reported a robust 33% revenue increase to ₹342.14 crore, driven by significant vehicle deliveries. Notably, Olectra celebrated delivering 1,615 electric vehicles, significantly boosting its revenue.
