The reason behind a strong rally in the counter in the recent past is due to the grant of an ‘In-principle Authorisation’ by the Reserve Bank of India for setting up of White Label ATMs (WLAs) in India. As a White Level ATM operator (WLAO), it will set up, own and operate at least 15000 ATMs under its own brand in a three year timeline across the country. This is a positive development for the company. Coming to your query, you can book partial profits as you can earn a profit of up to 30 per cent and hold the rest till the company’s FY13 results are out.
