3. Port concessions located closely to JSW Group Customers (Related Parties) and industrial clusters. These advantages accounted for 64% of the total cargo handled in the three month period ended 31 June 2023 as it came from JSW Group Customers and long-term third party customers.

4. JSW Infrastructure Depends on licensing and concession agreements with governmental and quasi-governmental agencies to run and expand the business.

Crisp Insights:

  • JSW Infrastructure IPO GMP Today: The Company is commanding a GMP of 10%.

  • JSW Infrastructure Gems GMP is weak and hence, investors need to be careful.
