Does Niko Resources Ltd's inability to sell its 10% stake in the D-6 block point to an inherent unviability of the KG Basin economics for the RIL-BP duo?
8Niko has defaulted on its latest cash call, inviting a default notice from RIL.

8Clearly, liabilities including those arising out of arbitration proceedings with the government, outweigh assets in the KG Basin block as of now for all promoters, it seems.

China seems to be going through a subtle reforming of its gas sector, particularly on the pricing front.
8The government there has incentivised demand growth in gas with a low price while also attempting to increase domestic production with a high price.
8Interestingly, state companies are losing money on imports when highly priced LNG must be sold into a market with lower regulated prices.
8How does Beijing manage this dilemma using regulated prices while also attempting to provide a link to international markets?

8The Supreme Court of India held that the conditions prescribed in a statute for claiming a tax credit must be strictly construed. The use of the word ‘shall’ in a statute does not admit to any other interpretation, except that the time prescribed for claiming input tax credit has to be strictly followed.
8Then again, a high court in a case concerning the allowability of a stay application held that the Assessing Officer must consider the taxpayer's genuine hardship to allow a stay application.
8A court has held that a taxpayer had committed an offence under Section 276CC of the Act by failing to furnish the tax return within the time limit specified under the Act and for the further failure to abide by the notices issued by the tax officer
8Another ruling on allowable deductions for payments of salary and other operating expenditures of a foreign company’s permanent establishment in India held that the disallowance provisions under Section 40(a)(i) of the Income-tax Act, 1961 do not apply to the taxpayer because of the lack of any restrictive clause in Article 7(3) of India-Mauritius income tax treaty.

The threat of the electric car impacting the demand for petrol and diesel seems to have retreated in the face of the euphoria over the recent demand-led surge in oil prices.
8But an array of car manufacturers is now coming out with electric car models that have high mileage coverage and attractive economics.
8The new Tesla model, for example, is capable of going 800 km in one charge and it can go 600 km in one 30-minute charge.
8High oil prices seem to be just the impetus that the electric car industry needed to push more model out as rapidly as possible
8The attention of the oil & gas industry has been diverted in recent months but it will not be wise to take the eye off what is changing -- and a lot has been changing -- in the electric car industry.

Petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan may not be remembered as someone who could arrest the alarming rise in India's oil dependency ratio despite the Prime Minister's avowed goal of bringing it down rapidly. Fact of the matter is that he has failed on this front.
8He has unveiled new policies but they have not been able to coax foreign investments into India E&P sector. While in tenure, he has not been successful either in persuading ONGC and OIL to push production up, eventually forcing his nationalist government to go against its deeply help beliefs to appoint a committee which will investigate the possibility of auctioning some of their nomination fields
8Nor has he been very successful in coaxing his own government to cut taxes to bring petrol and diesel prices down.
8But he has won a right to be remembered by posterity for the remarkable work he has done to introduce and effectively implement the Direct Subsidy Scheme for LPG.
8No doubt the scheme still has many problems, but his body of work on this subject is now the focus of global scrutiny by governments, research institutes and universities as a model to follow.
8This will remain Pradhan's indelible contribution to the world well after he demits office. By Aniruddha Sharma

For many around the world, an illustrative case of contemporary Indian opulence is ‘Antilia’, the residence of RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani, in the heart of Mumbai. Its estimated to cost one billion US dollars, it has a floor space equivalent to two-thirds of the Palace of Versailles, and boasts a staff of several hundred for its upkeep.
8The residence is now the scrutiny of economist and social anthropologists around the world over the question of how in the midst of poverty and squalor and the lack of proper housing, a 27-story, 400,000 square feet single-family residence can be accounted for.
8Also in focus is the question of why India, notwithstanding its multiple institutional challenges with a large impoverished agrarian population, is also able to generate a visible and globally mobile wealthy class.
8And how despite structural reforms, the country has failed to dismantle a vast and persistent low-wage informal sector, thereby accentuating the rise of the rich. By Aniruddha Sharma

There are visible changes in the manner of functioning of the PNGRB after D.K. Saraff took over as the PNGRB chairman. This goes to prove that appointing an experienced oil & gas hand is better than putting a dyed-in-the-wool bureaucrat in charge of a specialized body such as the PNGRB.
8Saraff has been quick off the ground, having pushed one CGD round and now plugging for one more.
8He has also come out with an suo moto notice for a cross country pipeline, from Mumbai to Angul in Odisha, via Nagpur.
8But Saraff needs to be careful too. Particularly in tariff hikes to pipeline companies. The bottomlines of GAIL and Gujarat Gas have soared after the recent tariff hikes. The PNGRB is now considering a 40% tariff revision for the main pipelines of GAIL (HVJ & HVJ upgradation), that will result in a 13% increase in FY20 EPS of the gas monopoly. Further, implementing a single tariff formula will push GAIL EPS up by another 27%.
8Saraff must understand that his job is to be a regulator, to ensure that the system works not just for pipeline companies but also for hundreds if not thousands of gas consumers around the country, who will eventually have to bear the burden of his decisions.
8Surely, pipelines require an adequate return on investment but, equally, there is a need to end their stranglehold on transportation infrastructure. If Saraff is quick to provide tariff hikes, he must be strident in demanding a bifurcation of GAIL into its transmission and trading arms.
8He also needs to ensure a transparent mechanism by which the current crop of CGD companies pass on the benefits of subsidized gas prices to consumers. Their monopoly distribution rights need to be tempered too, so that these companies can earn the respect of their customers and not just of share brokers.
8Or else, Saraff will find that the hope vested on him to bring about much needed change will quickly turn to disappointment. By Aniruddha Sharma
