Nine of the 10 most-valued companies lost a whopping 2,19,920.71 lakh crore in their total market valuation last week with the barometer Sensex tanking more than 3 per cent.

Reliance Industries (RIL) was the only scrip to post gains in its market valuation among the top 10 valued companies.

Among losers, Tata Consultancy Services' market valuation tanked 81,506.34 crore to 10,71,263.77 crore. The valuation of HDFC Bank declined by 2,202.12 crore to reach 8,45,552.53 crore.

The market capitalisation (m-cap) of ICICI Bank dropped by 18,098.57 crore to 4,13,078.87 crore and that of Hindustan Unilever by 11,536.32 crore to 5,00,937.14 crore.

HDFC's valuation declined by 35,389.88 crore to reach 4,57,518.73 crore and that of Infosys by 16,613.57 crore to 5,33,487.07 crore.

Key benchmark index Sensex dropped by 1,786 points or 3.46 per cent last week amid weak global cues.

The 30-share index posted its biggest single-day fall in nearly 10 months on Friday while the NSE Nifty plunged over 568 points to crack below the psychological 15,000-mark, tracking global selloffs triggered by a panic in bond markets overseas.

In the ranking of 10 most-valued companies, RIL was at the top of the chart followed by TCS, HDFC Bank, Infosys, Hindustan Unilever Limited, HDFC, ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, SBI and Bajaj Finance.
