  1. This one is better than Fine Organic but looking at the prices of other government IPOs it looks scary.

  2. RITES is a good company. It is unlike other PSUs and if you walk into their office in Gurgaon, you can confuse it for a private sector office. And I’m not just talking about the building, it has totally different work culture, opposite of the sick culture of most PSUs.

    I’ve a friend working there and have been to the office a number of times. Grey market is supportive and pricing is good so I’ll be taking a plunge in this one.

  3. RITES is a PSU and offered prices is stable and satisfactory. It have got a very good track record and is professional in work. It is better to invest for long run.
