After considering Split and Bonus, valuation of our investment as of 02 May, 2021 (today when I am writing the post),

1st corporate action: 1:2 bonus, 1000 shares becomes 3000 as on 17-06-2005.

which is calculated as 1:2 bonus will add 2 shares for every 1 share in holding.

So, we are having 1000 shares, it will add 2000 share and total will end up as 3000.

2nd Corporate action: 1:10 split, 3000 shares become 30000 as on 17-06-2005.

It is calculated as a 1:10 bonus will add 10 shares in place of every 1 share in holding and the total will end up as 30000 (3000*10).

3rd Corporate action: 1:1 bonus, 30000 shares will becomes 60000 as on 18-06-2010.

which is calculated as 1:1 bonus will add 1 share for every 1 share in holding, and total will end up as 30000*2 = 60000.

4th Corporate action: 1:2 bonus, 60000 shares will becomes 1,80,000 shares as on 20-05-2016.

It is calculated as 1:2 bonus will add 2 shares for every 1 share in holding, and total will end up as 60000 + (60000*2) = 1,80,000 shares.

So, after 20-05-2016 you are having 1,80,000 shares of ITC.

and current market price of ITC (2nd May 2021) is 202 Rs.

So, our total valuation of investment will be (202*1,80,000) = 3,63,60,000 (3 Crore, 63 Lac, 60 thousand Only).

This is power of Bonus and Splits.
