BCL Industries shares hit fresh 52-week high - Here's why
BCL Industries said that the government's decision will benefit the company as its machinery is capable of making ethanol from maize.
BCL Industries share price NSE, BSE: Share of BCL Industries hit a fresh 52-week high on Friday.

"We have been saying for 4-5 years that maize is a future crop and now the government has made it clear that they want to promote production of ethanol from maize. All our machineries are capable of doing that and it will benefit the company," Mittal told Zee Business Managing Editor Anil Singhvi.
Earlier on Thursday, the Central government directed sugar mills to not use sugarcane juice for producing ethanol in 2023-2024 as it is worried that the country's sugar output may fall which would lead to a spike in prices.
