The government raised Rs 444 crore by divesting 15.2 per cent stake in the company. Mazgaon Dock is engaged in the construction and repair of warships and submarines for use by the Indian Navy and other vessels for commercial clients.

Many analysts had recommended the stock to investors, citing attractive valuation, strong order book, and the government’s defence procurement policy.
