The refining capacity of India has grown quite significantly from 0.5 MMTPA at times of independence to the current capacity of 247 MMTPA or nearly 5 million barrels per day with the number of refineries growing from 1 to 23. At the turn of the millennium, India had the capacity of 113 MMTPA which has more than been doubled over the last 18 years with capacity additions by Public Sector Oil Companies, as well as by the Private Sector and the Joint Ventures.
