Tata group market value nears Rs 6 trillion

NEW DELHI: Largely unaffected by the recent carnage in stock markets, salt-to-software conglomerate Tata Group is closing in on to become the country’s first business house to attain a market valuation of Rs 6 lakh crore. The cumulative market capitalisation of all 32 listed companies of the Tata group has risen to nearly Rs 5.90 lakh crore as on Friday — the highest for any business house in the country and almost double the market value of the second ranked Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries Group. The total market value of Tata group exceeds the combined market capitalisation of at least three leading business houses in the country — Mukesh Ambani- led RIL group (about Rs 2.75 lakh crore), Kumar Mangalam Birla-led Aditya Birla Group (about Rs 1.5 lakh crore) and Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group (about Rs 62,000 crore). Interestingly, the Tata group’s market value has grown substantially over the past one year, including in the past few months when the overall stock markets have been facing strong headwinds and have lost value. In the past three months, the Tata group’s valuation has grown by over Rs 80,000 crore or over 15 per cent, while the total valuation of Indian markets has actually fallen by about 10 per cent during the same period, shows an analysis of data available from stock exchanges. Tata group, which saw a change of leadership late last year from Ratan Tata to Cyrus Mistry, has seen its valuation growing by over Rs 1 lakh crore since the beginning of this year. On the other hand, valuations of many other large groups have remained either flat or have fallen in the recent months amid a huge volatility in stock markets. While Tatas have the largest number of listed companies among major business houses in the country, RIL alone used to command a market value of over Rs 4 lakh crore a few years ago as the country’s most valued company. However, this position is now occupied by Tata group firm TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) with a market cap of close to Rs 3.96 lakh crore. In comparison, RIL’s market cap currently stands at about Rs 2.75 lakh crore, while its only other listed group company, Reliance Industrial Infrastructure Ltd, has a market value of just about Rs 440 crore.

8 Eye Opening Entrepreneurial Teachings from Dalai Lama

The teachings of Dalai Lama have always been a great source of inspiration and enlightenment for many successful personalities around the globe. Forbes compiles a list of lessons that any entrepreneur can draw from the teachings of the holy Tibetan Monk.

Let us take a look at Dalai Lama’s teachings which lead us to entrepreneurial success.

1. Do what you love to the fullest

Always follow your heart for every question that arises in your mind. Listening to your inside and working towards it to the fullest is the most simple and true way to achieve success. In some situations, the rate at which you attain success might be slow, but at least you have the satisfaction that you are doing something completely on your own intuition and not under any pressure. At the end, it is your life, your career and your enterprise, and only you must be the master of your conscience.

2. Make the noble sacrifice

Judge your achievements or success with the amount of sacrifice that you had to make and all that you had to give up in order to attain it. Any achievement is lifeless and bland without the pain of sacrifice. Sacrifice can be of many types; some times it is just a long wait, relationship or even comfort. But you are to make the decision of prioritizing and ascending towards the greater good.

3. Lose gloriously when you do

Entrepreneurship is not always about climbing the ladder of success. Sometimes there are hard falls and you must not lose your honor in the dark times. Adapt to the harsh times, learn from the mistakes you did that led to this day and never forget the true lessons you have learnt in life. It is very easy to lose heart in your venture and give in, but only the strong people rise and fight back.

4. Stay prepared

You must always stay laced and on your toes for any kind of situation. Learn the rules of the game deep enough so that you are always driven by your instincts to what is probably the fittest thing to do at a particular turn of events. You should always stay brushed with your rulebook and keep your eyes open.

5. Treasure your relations

Trivial disputes, especially related to money, can ruin the strongest bonds of affection. Never let financial issues drift you apart from people who have stayed so close to your heart since the beginning and been a support in your happiness as well as troubles. Nurture relationships and build bridges. Become an enabler, says Forbes.

6. Do not lose your values

The journey towards entrepreneurial success calls for many changes that you need to incur in your personal and professional life. In order to dedicate yourself completely to your work, do not forget the hard earned values because you lose all your passion and devotion once you are away from your teachings and once you fall, you will shatter.

7. Follow the three Rs

Relationship with your peers and employees boils down to basically three Rs that every entrepreneur must religiously follow to be a good leader. One must Respect Others, Respect himself and be Responsible of actions in all aspects of venture at all stages.

8. Silence is the best answer

When you are criticized for your failure and you find it harsh, there is an undying surge inside that provokes you to confront and answer back. Many a times this can lead to devastation and the best thing to do in such a situation to keep the cool and ignore everything they say. Your silence towards them would be a stone cold answer to all the mockeries.
