At the end of today's trade, the market capitalisation (m-cap) of TCS soared to Rs. 5,06,703.34 crore, the highest for the company since its listing in 2004.

Shares of the IT bellwether ended the day at Rs. 2,586.90, up 2.21 per cent on the BSE. In intra-day, it gained 2.52% to Rs. 2,595 -- its 52-week high.

In dollar terms, TCS' market valuation rose to $ 84 billion.

Interestingly, TCS's current market capitalisation is higher than the combined valuation of other big IT players such as Infosys (Rs 1,92,196.84 crore), HCL Technologies (Rs 1,07,880.18 crore), Wipro (Rs 1,40,474.31 crore) and Tech Mahindra (Rs 50,374.76 crore).

TCS's stock has been in strong position, rallying more than 8% in five consecutive sessions from last Thursday, after the company posted a 45% jump in June quarter net profit.

TCS is also currently the country's most valued company in terms of market valuation.

The IT major is followed by state-run ONGC whose m-cap stood at Rs. 3,46,582.90 crore, Reliance Industries Rs. 3,34,054.95 crore, ITC (Rs 2,80,454.65 crore) and Coal India (Rs 2,42,579.97 crore).
