- Corona times not impacted the Revenue & Profit of the company much
- Good Dividend Payer

Here are the concern factors regarding IRCTC
- As you can see the company is Over valued
- No Intrinsic Value discounts (Maruti traded at BMW cost)
- Value Investors may not enter this company, for instance
- Company does not have High Reputation on the area of service – Website is troublesome, Apps are not impressive

Based on the above analysis I would to say that the IRCTC DOES NOT have multibagger properties as per Value Investing. If the Valuation change in near future we will change this report.
