Top 10 Companies Lose Rs 4.22 Lakh Crore In Market Capitalisation


The 10 most valued domestic companies lost a massive Rs 4,22,393.44 crore in market capitalisation last week, with heavyweights TCS and RIL taking the biggest hit.

In a nerve-wracking week for the markets, the Sensex plummeted 3,473.14 points or 9.24 percent, largely in tandem with global equities which were hammered by panic selling amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The market capitalisation of TCS dropped by Rs 1,16,549.07 crore to reach Rs 6,78,168.49 crore for the week ended Friday.

Reliance Industries' m-cap plummeted Rs 1,03,425.15 crore to Rs 7,01,693.52 crore.

Infosys was another major drag, with its valuation plunging Rs 41,315.98 crore to Rs 2,73,505.62 crore.

Bharti Airtel suffered a decline of Rs 13,611.62 crore in its valuation to stand at Rs 2,69,613.64 crore. The market-cap of HDFC fell by Rs 7,013.31 crore to Rs 3,58,201.28 crore.

In the ranking of the 10 most valued firms, RIL remained at the top, followed by TCS, HDFC Bank, HUL, HDFC, ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Infosys, Bharti Airtel and Bajaj Finance.
