Top 10 Listed Companies in India

Everyone would be interested to know which the largest company in India is. Some of us are not sure whether it is Reliance Industries or TCS or HDFC? Some companies are public companies listed on stock exchanges but some others are privately held companies. There are several criteria to measure the size of a company such as its turnover, net profit after tax, market capitalization, enterprise valuation, capital employed etc.

Here we need to adopt criteria for measuring the size to arrive at the top 10 companies. Since the parameters of turnover, profitability, enterprise valuation etc have varying weights in different sectors, we have selected Market Capitalization or Market Cap as the best criteria for measuring the size. Please note that, since we have selected market cap as the criteria, many privately held companies (like Reliance Jio, Bennett Coleman & co. Ltd (Times Group), Parle Products, Amul, Zomato, Byju’s App etc) are not included in the top 10 list as, being unlisted companies, the concept of Market Cap is not applicable to them.

 

What is Market Capitalization?

Market capitalization is the aggregate market valuation of a company based on its current share price and the total number of outstanding stocks. It can be simply calculated by multiplying the current market price of the company’s share with its total outstanding shares.

Based on the market cap of companies listed on Indian stock exchanges, the top 10 Indian companies, in ascending order, are discussed hereafter. The figures for these calculations have been taken based on the closing price of shares, as of 14th July 2022, listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSC) and extracted from MoneyControl.com.

Viewers should keep in mind that stock prices change every day by market forces hence the market cap will also keep changing. For the purpose of US$ conversion, 1 US$ = 79.80 Indian Rupees *. Top 10 Indian Companies.
