New Delhi:Led by software major TCS, six out of top 10 Sensex companies lost a total Rs 62,808 crore in market valuation last week as sharp correction in Chinese stocks and worries over Greece debt crisis kept domestic markets on the edge.

RIL, ONGC, ITC, Infosys and HDFC were among the losers last week, while HDFC Bank, CIL, Sun Pharmaceutical and SBI made gains in market valuations.

Among the top 10 Sensex companies, the market valuation of TCS plunged the most by Rs 26,031.49 crore to Rs 4,84,177.97 crore last week.

In the broader market, the BSE benchmark Sensex fell by 431.39 points to end at 27,661.40.

A sharp downward correction in Chinese stocks and uncertainties involving Greece kept Indian markets on edge, which ended last week in the red.

The key indices of Sensex and Nifty settled below the psychologically significant 28,000 and 8,400 levels respectively, reversing three weeks of gains.
