RIL seeks clarification on gas utilisation policy

Even as India Inc and the government rejoices over the settlement between Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani, it seems like the drama is not over yet. NDTV has learnt that Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries now wants the government to clarify its gas allocation policy before it begins talks with RNRL over gas supplies.

For this the company has already sent feelers to the empowered group of ministers (EGoM) members seeking further clarity, sources said.

Sources said RIL has informed the government that there is no room for re-negotiation as per the government’s current gas utilisation policy.

Sources close to the development also say that RIL wants the government to play a significant role in renegotiations with RNRL. When contacted, RIL declined to comment on the news.

The Supreme Court had on May 7 rejected Anil Ambani Group firm RNRL’s claim for cheap gas from RIL as had been decided in a private family agreement of 2005. The apex court had directed the two companies to rework gas supply pact keeping the government’s pricing and utilisation policy in mind.

RIL and RNRL are likely to meet formally next week for renegotiations on the family pact that provided for Anil Ambani firm getting 28 million cubic meters per day of gas for 17 years.
