BRNL is a road BOT company in India, focused on development, implementation, operation and maintenance of roads/highways projects. Even though government has focused on infrastructure spending and this may open up opportunities in the BOT segment, but due to higher competitive intensity the company may not get the opportunity in orders. Moreover, the company has been reporting losses in the last 5 years. One may give this IPO a miss.
