The Power Duo: REC Limited and RVNL
REC Limited, a Maharatna CPSE (Central Public Sector Enterprise) born in 1969 under the Ministry of Power, has been a stalwart in providing long-term financial muscle to the Power-Infrastructure sector. While initially focusing on Generation, Transmission, and Distribution, REC has recently expanded its portfolio to embrace emerging technologies such as Electric Vehicles, Battery Storage, and Green Hydrogen.
In a strategic leap, REC has also diversified into the Non-Power Infrastructure sector, spreading its wings across Roads & Expressways, Metro Rail, Airports, IT Communication, Social & Commercial Infrastructure, Ports, and Electro-Mechanical works for sectors like Steel and Refinery. With a loan book exceeding a colossal Rs 4,74,275 Crore, REC stands as a financial juggernaut ready to fuel India’s growth.
On the flip side, RVNL, a “Schedule ‘A’ Navratna” under the Ministry of Railways, plays a pivotal role in fulfilling 30% of Indian Railways’ infrastructure needs. A trailblazer in executing large projects through the PPP (Public-Private Partnership) model, RVNL isn’t confined to railways. It has ventured into roads, ports, irrigation, and metro projects, forming a web of connectivity that strengthens the backbone of India’s infrastructure.
