Recommendation on Rategain Travel Technologies Limited IPO:

Review and Recommendation of Rategain Travel Technologies by InvestorZone is 3/10 [Nothing great in the company in terms of financial performance. The sector in which company is doing business i.e. Travel has suffered the heavy losses during covid-19 and condition are not improving with covid is still around. And, again with scare of Omicron virus, the travel restrictions are already started. There is no peer available in the market to ascertain the valuation, i.e over-valued or under-valued.]
