Shares of the state-run Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) experienced a notable surge of approximately 13 percent in early trading on April 29 following the announcement that the company has been conferred with the prestigious ‘Navratna’ status, according to a moneycontrol report.

The Department of Public Enterprises (DPE), through a communication dated April 26, has bestowed the coveted ‘Navratna status’ upon the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency. This classification places PSUs into categories including Maharatna, Navratna, and Miniratna companies. Notably, Navratna companies are granted certain privileges, such as the ability to invest up to Rs 1,000 crore without requiring prior government approval.

Furthermore, Navratna entities possess the authority to allocate approximately 15 percent of their resources to a specific project or utilise up t30 percent of their net worth throughout the fiscal year, as long as it remains within the prescribed Rs 1,000 crore limit.
