What Led to the Recent Share Gains of IndusInd Bank?
Previously in September 2021, IndusInd’s share gains likely arose due to positive news in the telecom sector. The Union Ministry had cleared a relief package for the debt-laden telecoms, providing a four-year moratorium on AGR dues.
As the banking sector had huge exposure to this sector (mainly to heavily indebted Vodafone Idea), investors were relieved to hear the news.
Recently, the bank updated its financials, stating that it gained 10% in net advances and 21% in deposits. This led to its stock being the second-largest gainer on Nifty50, ending 5% higher.
