RVNL Share Price


  1. Expect it to open at 22 provided it is fully subscribed at the upper price band. Given the market scenario and the valuation, that seems quite likely. First listing of the new FY will come with a bang!

  2. From it’s inception and till now profit margin is going down. Why. Government controlled companies are like this. Be careful while investing, worth buying at RS.19 or 20 in less quality be on the safer side.
