The country’s market capitalisation
fell below Rs 200 trillion on Thursday, a level first achieved on February 4. The combined market value of all BSE-listed companies stands at Rs 198.75 ($2.73 trillion). The latest bout of correction, triggered by rising US bond yields and a surge in Covid cases, has shaved off Rs 11.5 trillion in market value.
