Speaking of stock markets, co-head of research at Equitymaster Tanushree Banerjee discusses how power sector stocks are profiting from the electric vehicle gold rush, in her latest video.

If you find investing in the pricey direct EV space too risky, turn your attention to this sector that has fetched 3% return in the past decade.

Tune in to find out why:

In news from the steel sector, the government on Monday extended for the third time the deadline to submit applications under the production-lined incentive scheme for specialty steel till 30 June 2022.

Only 10 applications have been received from the players looking to invest under the Rs 63.2 bn scheme till now, which was launched in July last year.

Initially, 29 March was the last date for manufacturers to apply for the benefits under the PLI scheme for specialty steel. It was later extended till 30 April and again to 31 May 2022.

It was reported last week that the government is considering extension of the last date to submit applications under the PLI scheme with a few modifications like no minimum investment cap and setting up minimum capacity for secondary players.

The scheme will make India self-sufficient in meeting its speciality steel needs and boost exports and open up an opportunity to join the league of advanced steel-making countries such as Japan and South Korea.
