Over the years, she has spotted such stocks which have gone on to offer triple and even quadruple digit gains for investors. (* Past performance is no guarantee of future results)

Today, when the markets are near all-time high... and some investors are thinking of booking profits... Richa has spotted 3 such stocks which are set for a massive rally.

Back in 2019, the government of India expected to offer nearly 20 power transmission projects worth Rs 160 bn for bidding.

Note that Indian power sector is undergoing a significant change that has redefined the industry outlook. Sustained economic growth continues to drive electricity demand in India.

Speaking of the power sector, it's interesting to note the power exchanged in India is about 4.5% of the overall power production, as can be seen in the chart below.

As per Tanushree Banerjee, Co-Head of Research at Equitymaster, India's power sector is currently in transition. It's driven by increasing reliance on short-term contracts and electricity spot markets.

This transition to the short-term market is happening due to quickly evolving industry dynamics.

Tanushree believes the Indian power sector will see a surge in spot power volumes due to certain factors.

In August 2020, Tanushree recommended a high-quality stock from this space. Subscribers can read the report here (requires subscription).
