New Delhi — In a remarkable feat, India’s Tata Group has outgrown the entire economy of neighboring Pakistan. With a collective market capitalization of $365 billion or approximately Rs 30.3 lakh crore, the conglomerate now stands larger than Pakistan’s estimated Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which the International Monetary Fund (IMF) places at around $341 billion.

While India’s GDP remains 11 times larger than Pakistan’s economy, the surge in Tata Group’s market value has been driven by several key companies within the group. Notably, Tata Motors, Trent, Titan, TCS (Tata Consultancy Services), and Tata Power have significantly contributed to this remarkable milestone.

Triumph of the Tatas

The recent gains in Tata Group’s market value can be attributed to multibagger returns from Tata Motors and Trent, along with a healthy rally in Titan, TCS, and Tata Power over the past year. At least eight Tata companies have more than doubled their wealth during this period, including TRF, Trent, Benaras Hotels, Tata Investment Corporation, Tata Motors, Automobile Corporation of Goa, and Artson Engineering.

TCS, valued at about Rs 15 lakh crore or $170 billion, not only ranks as India’s second-largest company but is also roughly half the size of Pakistan’s struggling economy, which faces an unmanageable debt burden1.

Unlisted Companies and Future Potential

The market cap calculation does not even account for unlisted Tata companies such as Tata Sons, Tata Capital, Tata Play, Tata Advanced Systems, and the airlines business (Air India and Vistara). If we consider these unlisted entities, the might of the Tatas could easily grow by another $160-170 billion or more.

In summary, the Tata Group’s remarkable ascent underscores its resilience, strategic vision, and contribution to India’s economic landscape. As it continues to thrive, the conglomerate’s market value stands as a testament to its enduring legacy and impact on global business.
