ONGC market cap crosses Rs3 lakh crore mark

Mumbai: State-run Oil and Natural Gas Corporation's (ONGC) market valuation today topped the Rs 3 lakh crore mark, a feat achieved only by industry heavy weight Reliance Industries (RIL) before, reports PTI.

In line with the broader market, shares of ONGC today surged nearly 1% to touch an intra-day high of Rs1,415 thus fuelling the market capitalisation of the firm to a whopping Rs3,00,511 crore in the morning trade.

Reliance Industries' market cap stood at Rs3,38,883 crore thus retaining its position as the most valued company.

The shares of the company, however, were trading in the negative territory and dipped 0.36% at Rs1,036 in morning trade.

ONGC investors got richer by as much as Rs555 crore in just over two hours of trading as the market valuation of the company stood at Rs2,99,956 crore at the end of trade yesterday.

Analysts said the rally in the broader market and sustained inflows of overseas funds, bolstered the stock.

The Bombay Stock Exchange’s (BSE) benchmark Sensex shot up by over 135 points to regain the magical 20,000 level in the opening trade today for the first time since 17 January 2008, on spurt in buying of oil and gas, capital goods and banking sector stocks.

Similarly, the wide-based National Stock Exchange (NSE) also crossed the crucial 6,000 points to trade 36.40 points higher at 6,016.85 points. Both indices have regained these levels after almost 32 months.
