Tata Power shares near record high after power generator joins hands with Indian Oil to set up EV charging points
The sharp gains in Tata Power stock occurred after the private sector integrated power company announced it had collaborated with Indian Oil Corporation.
Tata Power shares rose on Monday after the Tata group power generation company collaborated with state-run oil marketing company Indian Oil Corp Ltd (IOCL) to deploy more than 500 electric vehicle (EV) charging points across the country. The Tata Power stock (TATAPOWER) gained by as much as Rs 11.8, or 3.6 per cent, to Rs 335.3 apiece on BSE, coming within inches of an all-time high scaled last week.
