IT giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Tuesday slipped to fourth position in the list of the country's most valued companies, below Reliance Industries, ONGC and Coal India Ltd.

The Tata group firm had briefly replaced RIL as the country's most-valued firm late last month, but could not hold on to the top ranking.

A sharp plunge in TCS shares had pushed the company to third position after RIL and ONGC earlier this month and a further retreat led to the country's largest software exporter slipping to fourth slot in the market valuation charts on Tuesday.

At the end of Tuesday's trade, TCS had a market value of Rs 216,135.91 crore -- lower than RIL's 242,424.06 crore, ONGC's Rs 223,939.95 crore and CIL's Rs 221,893.88 crore.
