Should You Subscribe to RailTel Corporation of India IPO or not?

The RailTel Corporation of India provides ICT(information and communications technology) infrastructure to the Indian Railways. It gets around 65% of its revenue from the telecom/broadband sector while the rest is from other railway services.

This company has many positives like debt-free balance sheet, regular dividends, pure valuation, and major role player in digital transformation of Indian Railways. Besides, it promises profitable margins and return ratios.

On the other hand, it has delivered less revenue, 7.5% PAT, and 2.5% CGR in FY 2018-20 so makes it questionable for long term investors. Besides, around 24% of its revenue comes from only 3 of its big customers.

Therefore, it is recommended to subscribe mainly for listing gain purposes. Besides, many Top Brokers have also given it a thumbs up for the same. People willing to take risks can go for long term investments. For great long term gains, you can invest in Government Securities using RBI’s Gilt Account. Their risk might be rewarded well, given the upcoming 5G services where RailTel can play an important hand.
