PSU bank stocks surged as investor sentiment improved following the political stability confirmed by the 2024 Lok Sabha election results. Leaders of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) pledged their support to form a government for a third consecutive term. Over the past decade, public sector undertakings (PSUs) have been significant beneficiaries under the NDA government, a trend reflected in the substantial gains of PSU stocks, with some delivering multi-bagger returns.

However, investor confidence in PSU banks remains uncertain, hinging on the stability of the coalition and how governance unfolds. UBS analysts cautioned that the government might not operate as smoothly as it did in the past decade when the Prime Minister's office had strong control over the government machinery. The BJP's efforts to secure alliance partners could lead to significant policy changes and potentially disrupt growth momentum.
