State-run Coal India has become the third most powerful Indian company with a total market capitalisation (m-cap) of Rs 2,09,671.57 crore and is only lagging behind RIL and ONGC.

The coal behemoth added another feather to its cap last week when it replaced IT giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to become the country’s third most coveted firm.

CIL added Rs 7,611.21 crore to its valuation, which on Friday stood at Rs 2,09,671.57 crore.

RIL, the country’s most valuable firm, witnessed a wealth erosion of Rs 21,270.47 crore.
Yet with a market capitalisation (m-cap) of Rs 3,26,207 crore this weekend, it still maintained its top rank in the top-10 companies as per their valuations. Similarly, another energy major, ONGC, suffered a loss of Rs 8,865.61 crore from its market valuation.

The m-cap of ONGC was Rs 2,70,641.92 crore. Besides, two of the top IT firms– TCS and Infosys Technologies— together witnessed a loss of Rs 9,555.12 crore from their combined valuations.

TCS’s m-cap was at Rs 1,99,272.32 crore, while that of Infosys was at Rs 1,70,286 crore. Similarly, the country’s top two lenders– SBI and ICICI Bank-– together shed Rs 8,611.26 crore from their cumulative market valuations. The m-cap of SBI and ICICI stood at Rs 1,89,976.31 crore and Rs 1,31,912.11 crore, respectively.
