List of Companies with the highest share price in India (Updated – March 2021): The majority of shares in India trade at a share price below Rs 1,000 per share on Indian stock exchanges. However, there are a few stocks that trade at a price in the multiples of thousands of rupees.
Although, the share price of a company has nothing to do with the companies valuation, and even a company with a share price of Rs 2,000 can be undervalued compared to its peers. Anyways, for the small retail investors, it might be a little difficult to enter those stocks which trade at a very high share price.
In this article, we are going to discuss the most expensive shares in India i.e. the companies with the highest share price in India. Here, we’ll look at 12 of the costliest shares in India based on the current share price at which they are trading in the market.
