ITC stock was seeing buying interest on February 1 as taxes on cigarette and other tobacco products were left untouched by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her Budget for the year 2022-23.

As cigarette or tobacco business contributes more than 40 percent to the company’s revenue, the street always turns cautious on the scrip in the run-up to the Budget amid fear of an increased tax.

Sitharaman, however, didn’t make any changes in the taxes, which experts said was a positive for ITC.
