The largest decline was suffered by Infosys, while Reliance Industries, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), HDFC Bank, and ICICI Bank were among the other companies that saw a decrease in their valuation. Only ITC and State Bank of India witnessed an increase in their market valuation.

Infosys’ market valuation reached Rs 5,09,215 crore after plummeting by Rs 66,854.05 crore. This decline was a result of lower-than-expected growth in fourth-quarter net profit and a weak revenue growth guidance of 4-7% for the fiscal year 2024, which was attributed to IT budget tightening by clients following the turmoil in the US banking sector.

HDFC Bank’s valuation fell by Rs 10,880.5 crore to Rs 9,33,937.35 crore, while ICICI Bank’s valuation dropped by Rs 10,462.77 crore to Rs 6,17,477.46 crore.Market capitalization of TCS declined by Rs 10,318.52 crore, resulting in a total of Rs 11,56,863.98 crore.
