Railway Penny Stocks in India

India is on its way to construct more rail lines in the decade between 2015-2025 than it has cumulatively done between 1950 and 2015.

The Indian government has implemented plans for modernisation of railways. It has given a massive push to rail infrastructure.

As per Railway Ministry, by FY26, India plans to export standard-gauge Vande Bharat trains. The plan will place India on par with eight countries that have the capability to manufacture trains with speeds of 180 kmph or more.

The government is also likely to propose laying massive new railway tracks over the next 25 years. And also, complete the electrification of the entire rail network.

Strengthening railway infrastructure has been a top government priority for the past few years.

As all this happens, the companies involved in this sector will be the biggest beneficiaries. In particular, penny stocks involved in this railway segment could see their fortunes improve if all goes well.

Here are some of the railway sector penny stocks to add to your watchlist.

For the entire list, check out the list of railways stocks on our website.

Priced between Rs 1 to Rs 100, penny stocks offer a terrific entry point into the stock market and if chosen wisely, deliver spectacular gains to your portfolio.

However, they can also prove to be extremely risky. A lack of history and information about penny stocks, as well as low liquidity, can cause you to lose your money on what may seem like a bargain.

As the railway industry continues to evolve and overcome obstacles, it is expected to contribute significantly to India's economic growth and establish itself as a key player in the global market.
