Measured in terms of its weightage on the key index of Indian stock market, the Sensex, had been consistently enjoying its position as the most for many years till early December 2011.

RIL, however, remains bigger than Infosys in terms of the overall market value, including the value of promoter shares.

The total market value of RIL stood at Rs 2.47 lakh crore as on today, as against Infosys' Rs 1.63 lakh crore.
