On Wednesday, the company announced that it secured an order from Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam Limited. The order is valued at approximately ₹124 crore.

The RVNL share price continued to recover on Friday. The railway stock had slumped sharply on Tuesday as the election results delivered an unexpected mandate. The recovery got impetus as Narendra Modi‘s path to becoming prime minister became clear. This brought optimism to investors, who expect political stability and policy continuity.

Price Action: RVNL’s share price was up 1.60% to close at ₹374.55 on Friday.
