IRFC, along with several other rail public sector undertakings (PSUs), has experienced a notable surge in its stock performance over the past year. This upward trend in railway counters is largely attributed to the government’s emphasis on bolstering the sector.

However, the stocks have been under selling pressure after the budget. The railway companies’ results have also failed to impress investors.
