Mr. Sudhir Vasudeva

The substantial demand for energy that the growing economy generates and the significant value of our crude imports in combination provide a compelling reason for us to augment the domestic supplies and that is our biggest challenge today. Our output has been stagnating or plateauing for years now and can be set to be even gradually dipping. There are things that we are doing right now but we should do more to reverse the trend and take the country to the path that defines by increasing oil supplies from domestic sources.
