Power Grid Corporation of India was established by the Government of India (GoI) as the central transmission utility of India. As of 30 June 2021, the government held a 51.3% stake in the electric utility manufacturing company.

In its latest quarterly results, the company reported a sharp spurt in consolidated net profit at Rs 60 bn compared to Rs 20.5 bn in the June 2021 quarter.

Consolidated net sales also grew 8% year on year (YoY) to Rs 102.2 bn from Rs 95 bn.

How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more updates from this space.

At the time of writing, Power Grid Corporation shares were trading up by 4.1% on the BSE.

Speaking of electric vehicles, note that the power ministry has approved setting up 2,636 electric vehicle charging stations across 62 cities in 24 states.

Here’s what co-head of Research at Equitymaster, Tanushree Banerjee wrote about electric vehicles in one of her editions of Profit Hunter:

  • 106 public and private entities have approached the government for permissions to set up about 7,000 EV charging stations.

    This clearly shows the vehicle manufacturers have enough incentive to capture this latent demand.

    The tax benefit in terms of a lower GST rate (at 5%) is a further shot in the arm of the EV industry.

As per Tanushree, electric vehicles are very much on their way to invading Indian roads. The threat of disruption in this era is something you cannot ignore.

Tanushree believes one of the companies manufacturing lithium ion batteries for powering electric cars will be a key catalyst for the Rebirth of India
