OIL registers another sharp decline in output: Is there more to it than meets the eye?

Mar 26: It is clearly unacceptable that Oil India Ltd's crude production was 23% off target in January, and another 20% in February. Output is running significantly lower during these months in the previous year.
8There was hope that January was an exceptional month but the fact that output continues to remain low in February is cause for serious introspection.
8It is a clear failure on the part of OIL management team, lead by Utpal Bora, that miscreants can just walk in and shut down oil fields in Assam, causing grievous damage to them, particularly when a muscular BJP government is in power in Assam.
8Something is terribly wrong somewhere. Is it just "miscreant activity" or is there more to it than meets the eye?

B.C. Tripathi: Finally facing the heat

Mar 25: GAIL Chairman B.C. Tripathi has a way of ingratiating himself to whoever has been in power.

During the Modi era, Tripathi impressed the powers that be with his willingness to build trunk pipelines which the private sector would have been unwilling to construct.
8Even so, Tripathi's effort to elicit a second extension of his tenure until he retires in January 2020 seems to have run into rough weather.
