Keeping in mind the investors, investors are advised to invest in this IPO for medium to long term.
Aastha Jain of Hem Securities says that it is a defense sector company. Which currently looks very attractive. Due to the government’s focus on defence, huge amount of investment is coming in this sector. Which will benefit companies like Paras.
