RIL stock maximizes 5%, market valuation ranks top Rs 4 lakh crore

NEW DELHI: RIL shares saw brisk buying on Monday, ending at nearly 9-year high with 5 per cent gain, taking its market valuation beyond the Rs 4-lakh crore mark.

On NSE, it jumped 4.74 per cent to close at Rs 1,238.90.

The stock was the top gainer among the bluechips on both Sensex and Nifty.

Led by the surge in the stock price, the company's market valuation rose sharply by Rs 18,197.63 crore to Rs 4,01,784.63 crore.
