RIL stock price today: Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) experienced a significant loss of Rs 1.67 lakh crore in market value as its shares plummeted by 9.6% on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) today.

RIL’s shares had previously reached an all-time high of Rs 3,029 on June 3, with the company’s total market capitalization hitting Rs 20.44 lakh crore.However, it has now decreased to Rs 18.50 lakh crore, according to an ET report.
As investors adopted a risk-averse approach during Lok Sabha election results counting, the Sensex traded over 6,000 points lower on Tuesday, while the Nifty was down by nearly 2,000 points. This decline was primarily driven by heavyweights Reliance Industries and financial stocks. Reliance Industries, HDFC Bank, and ICICI Bank alone accounted for a 2012-point drop in the Sensex, while L&T, SBI, Axis Bank, NTPC, and Power Grid were among the other stocks contributing to the index’s downward movement.
