At a meeting held today, its board of directors has recommended the issue of bonus shares in the ratio of 1 bonus share of Rs 2 against 2 existing equity shares of Rs 2, subject to approval of shareholders.

He further said that the company is enhancing its focus on diversifying in the non-thermal power segment and other new areas, while maintaining its leadership status in the power sector.
As part of this, he said, the focus is on creating new verticals within the company to capitalize on the massive infrastructure spending by the government, with a special focus on Indian Railways, defence and other industrial products to drive the next wave of growth.
