RIL had on Tuesday dethroned TCS to clinch the title of the most valued Indian company by market valuation.

Before that, TCS had on August 10 surged past RIL.

On 31 July, Reliance Industries had regained its status as the country's most valued firm by m-cap, replacing Tata Group's crown jewel TCS from the top slot.

However, on 1 August TCS reclaimed the status.

The IT major had first replaced RIL as the most-valued firm more than five years ago.

The m-cap figure of companies changes daily with stock price movement.
