Govt will not change domestic gas price formula: Dharmendra Pradhan

Mumbai: Government will not change a domestic gas price formula which was set up in 2014, Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Wednesday.

On Sept 30, the government reduced the price of natural gas produced in India by 18 percent to USD 2.50 per million metric British thermal units (mmBtu) for the October to March 2017 period.

Rating Agency Fitch said in a note on Wednesday that while the lower gas prices will not significantly hurt the borrowing capacity of India`s second biggest state-owned exploration and production company Oil India Ltd, it will be selling natural gas at a loss.
