Reliance Industries Limited: The First Indian Company to Cross Rs 10 Lakh Crore in Market Cap

Reliance Industries Limited – The 10 Lakh Crore Company

Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) just crossed the market cap of Rs 10 lakh Crore today which makes Reliance Industries Ltd the first Indian Company to achieve this. According to the data on Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), RIL has witnessed a jump of 0.54%, RIL’s stock price was at Rs 1,578.

RIL’s jump from Rs 9.5 lakh crore from last week to Rs 10 Lakh Crore this week took 22 sessions. This makes RIL the most valued company on the stock exchange. It is followed by Tata Consultancy Services with an m-cap of Rs 7.81 Lakhs crore. In October 2019, RIL hit the Rs 9 Lakh crore market cap on intraday trading, which was again a first for an Indian company. The share price of Reliance Industries Ltd saw a rise of 41% so far this year as compared to Nifty 50’s 11.61% gain.

What contributed to RIL’s Jump?

Rise in gross refining margins, launch of the home broadband business, hike in telecom tariffs, low capital expenditure intensity, a stronghold on consumer business have largely contributed to this increase in share price. RIL generates close to one-third of the profits from retail and telecom businesses with a higher contribution from Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. A recent announcement by Reliance Jio mentions the start of its commercial operation of a fiber-to-home business which aspires to reach 2 crore households and 1.5 crore business firms in the next 13-18 months.
