Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent visit to Lakshadweep has spiked Google searches on the islands. Following the visit, comparisons between Lakshadweep and renowned beach destinations like the Maldives and Seychelles were made by many.

The hashtag "#BoycottMaldives" trended on X (formerly Twitter) in India after three Maldivian deputy ministers made controversial remarks against the Indian prime minister. Many Indians took to social media to share their cancelled tickets to Maldives and their reservations on the island nation.

Amidst this scenario, Praveg's shares have garnered considerable investor attention as the leading eco-responsible luxury resorts company has secured a work order for the development, operation, maintenance, and management of a minimum of 50 tents at Agatti Island, UT of Lakshadweep, according to the company's exchange filing made on December 20, 2023.

Although the shares reacted positively after this announcement, the recent wave of fresh buying is primarily attributed to the anticipated spike in tourism in Lakshadweep. Investors foresee long-term benefits for the company, aligning with the expected surge in tourism in the region.

In today's trading session, the stock was locked in the 20% upper circuit limit, hitting a new record high of 1,219 per share. This noteworthy increase builds on gains of 17.51% and 4.51% in the preceding two trading sessions, resulting in an overall cumulative gain of 47% for the stock.

Wealth creator

From a trading price of just 2.45 apiece five years ago, the stock has seen a remarkable rise of 50000% to trade at the current level of 1,219. If an investor invested 10,000 in the shares 5 years ago and remained invested until the present day, the wealth would have grown to a staggering 50 lakh.
