Reliance Industries Limited Annual Report 2013-14

Growth is Life...

Letter to Shareholders
Dear Fellow Shareowners,

In FY 2013-14 the global economy showed signs of recovery with growth in demand from the developed countries in the second half of the year.
Emerging markets, including India, had to face multiple challenges of rising current account deficit, depreciation of the local currency and additional pressure due to capital outflows.
Despite global and domestic challenges, Reliance continued its growth path. Reliance achieved a record revenue of ` 4,01,302 crore ($ 67.0 billion) and net profit of ` 21,984 crore ($ 3.7 billion). We became the first company in the private sector to record revenues of over ` 4,00,000 crore. Reliance also achieved its highest ever exports of ` 2,75,825 crore ($ 46.0 billion) during the year, contributing a record 69% of revenues. The continued growth of exports is an indicator of the growing demand for our products and services across the world.

FY 2013-14 was another recordsetting year for RIL. Our Refining business delivered the highestever profits with a sharp recovery in gross refining margins towards the end of the year. Petrochemical earnings grew significantly with margin expansion across polymers and downstream polyester products. The vertical integration across the refining and petrochemicals chain is a major advantage due to assured feedstock, lower volatility of margins and ability to take advantage of the opportunity in each product in the chain. Domestic upstream production was lower compared to the prior year due to continuing geological complexities. The shale gas business in the US grew significantly during the year and has become a material contributor to our earnings. We are now India’s largest retailer and turned profitable this year.

We have also accelerated our efforts to roll-out our state-of-theart 4G services across the country, which will add an exciting new dimension to our consumer facing service offerings.

Petrochemicals
Earnings from the Petrochemical business increased by 17.5% on the back of strong polymer and downstream polyester margins coupled with favourable exchange rate movement. This was partly offset by weak fibre margins in the second half of the year Demand growth in India for petrochemical products during FY 2013-14 was at a cyclical low compared to the double digit growth rates seen in the prior five and ten year periods. Domestic polymer demand growth was particularly weak at 3%. Reliance increased its polymer production by 2% to 4.5 MMT and maintained its leadership with a market share of 40% in the domestic polymer market.

Refining & Marketing
Our Jamnagar refinery complex continued to operate at over 110% of the design capacity, processing 68.0 MMT of crude, testament to our world-class assets and quality of operations. Global utilisation rates, in comparison, were 85% in North America, 76% in Europe and 85% in Asia. This was supported by stable middle distillate cracks, favourable crude differentials and currency movement. In addition to the market dynamics, Reliance's performance was driven by its operational excellence and wellexecuted strategies around crude sourcing and product placement. Continuing its emphasis on processing the challenging and most advantageous crudes, 64% of the total crude processed during the year was “advantaged”. The ability to operate at high utilisation levels and optimise product slate to suit market conditions enabled Reliance to capture opportunities in the market. As a part of our continuing efforts for energy conservation, we are working on the petcoke gasification project which is under rapid execution. This will provide competitive energy costs for our integrated refining complex at Jamnagar and improve profitability.

Letter to Shareholders (Continued)

We are implementing several projects both in the manufacturing domain and service sector to continue the tradition of creating significant shareholders value.

undertaken to sustain production and enhance recovery from the existing producing fields. During the year, two significant discoveries were made in the KG basin and Cauvery basin. Development activities in the two CBM blocks is gathering momentum. The new discoveries and the efforts to enhance recovery will strengthen India’s energy security. Reliance continued to balance its international portfolio by evaluating new blocks and assigning existing blocks. Reliance’s Shale Gas business continued on its growth path and has now achieved materiality in many respects. Our investments in the US Shale Gas ventures have started creating value for our shareholders. This business achieved record revenues and EBITDA for the year with significant growth. Reliance's share of net sales was at 131 BCFe in CY 2013, a growth of 54% y-o-y on account of about 1.6 fold increase in number of wells put on production from end of CY 2012.

The margins in the polyester chain were impacted by excess capacity of PTA, slow growth in demand for polyester fibre and yarn and volatility in paraxylene prices. Domestic polyester demand growth was at 6%.

Superior Financial Strength
Reliance is the only Asian company in the oil & gas sector to be rated two notches above the sovereign by S&P. Reliance is now rated higher than some of its global emerging market peers demonstrating its strength and competitive position in the refining and petrochemicals sectors. The rating also underpins Reliance’s position as a leading large-scale, integrated and efficient oil refining and petrochemicals company.

Reliance commissioned its new PFY facility at Silvassa which is the most automated and one of the most environment friendly plants globally. This is the first in the series of expansions that have been planned. With the economy and consumption being at the bottom of the down-cycle, the RIL start-ups would be ideally placed at a time when demand would emerge.

Consumer Businesses
We are delighted that our retail business continues to sustain its leadership position across several formats. It has become India’s largest retailer by revenues. It achieved the milestone of over 10 million square feet of retail space during the year. It also achieved break-even on a net profit basis during the year. Our retail offerings continue to delight our customers reflected in a record number of repeat customers and a healthy

Exploration and Production
In our domestic upstream business, production from the KG-D6 block continued to decline during the year. The fall in production is mainly attributed to the geological complexity and natural decline in the fields and higher than envisaged water ingress. Several activities were therefore

rate of growth in the same stores. Each format continues its plan of aggressively expanding its footprint as well as enhanced product and service offerings in existing stores to improve revenues and profits. Our ambitious goal of making India one of the global leaders in the delivery of digital content continues to gather steam. Reliance Jio Infocomm received Unified Licenses for all 22 service areas across India thus becoming the first telecom operator to get a pan India license. Several telecom infrastructure sharing arrangements with multiple operators were signed during the year. This will help us accelerate the roll-out of our 4G services while preserving capital and environment. We have a strong balance-sheet to support our ambitious growth plans. Reliance is the only Asian company in the oil & gas sector

to be rated two notches above the sovereign by S&P. Reliance is now rated higher than some of its global emerging market peers demonstrating its strength and competitive position in the refining and petrochemicals sectors. The rating also underpins Reliance’s position as a leading large-scale, integrated and efficient oil refining and petrochemicals company. During the year, Reliance continued to make significant progress on strengthening people practices and processes to attract and retain world-class talent. Several measures including new performance management systems and flexible work hours were put in place. Reliance has always prided itself in investing and contributing to India’s economic growth. We make a unique contribution to the Indian economy as India’s largest exporter, accounting for 14.7% of the country’s exports. Reliance has been globally and nationally felicitated for creating sustained long-term shareholders value. We are implementing several projects both in the manufacturing domain and service sector to continue this tradition of creating significant shareholders value. We are confident that our largest capital expenditure cycle will create significant value to all our stakeholders.

During the year, Reliance Foundation started several initiatives in new geographies in the rural transformation and information service area. Reliance Foundation’s role in relief and rehabilitation efforts in Uttarakhand was acclaimed and earned significant respect. Reliance Foundation continues its work in the identified domains of education, healthcare, rural transformation, urban renewal and protection of India’s arts, culture and heritage. I would like to thank all my colleagues in India and around the world for their commitment and contribution towards Reliance’s growth. As we strengthen our core, we look at the future eagerly to continue to generate shareholders value. I am grateful to the Board of Directors for their support and guidance. I would like to express my deep gratitude to all our stakeholders for the continued faith reposed in Reliance. With best wishes, Sincerely,

Item No. 15
The Articles of Association (“AoA”) of the Company as presently in force were replaced in January 1984 from what they were when the Company was incorporated in 1973. The existing AoA are based on the Companies Act, 1956 and several regulations in the existing AoA contain references to specific sections of the Companies Act, 1956 and some regulations in the existing AoA are no longer in conformity with the Act. The Act is now largely in force. On September 12, 2013, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (“MCA”) had notified 98 Sections for implementation. Subsequently, on March 26, 2014, MCA notified most of the remaining Sections (barring those provisions which require sanction / confirmation of the National Company Law Tribunal (“Tribunal”) such as variation of rights of holders of different classes of shares (Section 48), reduction of share capital (Section 66), compromises, arrangements and amalgamations (Chapter XV), prevention of oppression and mismanagement (Chapter XVI), revival and rehabilitation of sick companies (Chapter XIX), winding up (Chapter XX) and certain other provisions including, inter alia, relating to Investor Education and Protection Fund (Section 125) and valuation by registered valuers (Section 247). However, substantive sections of the Act which deal with the general working of companies stand notified. With the coming into force of the Act several regulations of the existing AoA of the Company require alteration or deletions in several articles. Given this position, it is considered expedient to wholly replace the existing AoA by a new set of Articles. The new AoA to be substituted in place of the existing AoA are based on Table ‘F’ of the Act which sets out the model articles of association for a company limited by shares. Shareholder’s attention is invited to certain salient provisions in the new draft AoA of the Company viz: (a) Company’s lien now extends also to bonuses declared from time to time in respect of shares over which lien exists; (b) the nominee(s) of a deceased sole member are recognized as having title to the deceased’s interest in the shares;

(c) new provisions regarding application of funds from reserve accounts when amounts in reserve accounts are to be capitalized; (d) new provisions relating to appointment of chief executive officer and chief financial officer, in addition to manager and company secretary; (e) existing articles have been streamlined and aligned with the Act; (f ) the statutory provisions of the Act which permit a company to do some acts “if so authorized by its articles” or provisions which require a company to do acts in a prescribed manner “unless the articles otherwise provide” have been specifically included; and (g) provisions of the existing AoA which are already part of statute in the Act have not been reproduced in the new draft AoA as they would only lead to duplication – their non-inclusion makes the new AoA crisp, concise and clear and aids ease of reading and understanding. The proposed new draft AoA is being uploaded on the Company’s website for perusal by the shareholders. None of the Directors / Key Managerial Personnel of the Company / their relatives are, in any way, concerned or interested, financially or otherwise, in the Special Resolution set out at Item No. 15 of the Notice. The Board commends the Special Resolution set out at Item No. 15 of the Notice for approval by the shareholders. By Order of the Board of Directors K.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis
FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENT
The report contains forward-looking statements, identified by words like ‘plans’, ‘expects’, ‘will’, ‘anticipates’, ‘believes’, ‘intends’, ‘projects’, ‘estimates’ and so on. All statements that address expectations or projections about the future, but not limited to the Company’s strategy for growth, product development, market position, expenditures and financial results, are forward-looking statements. Since these are based on certain assumptions and expectations of future events, the Company cannot guarantee that these are accurate or will be realised. The Company’s actual results, performance or achievements could thus differ from those projected in any forward-looking statements. The Company assumes no responsibility to publicly amend, modify or revise any such statements on the basis of subsequent developments, information or events. persistent inflation, fiscal imbalances, external sector vulnerabilities and low investments resulted in sluggish domestic demand growth. Fiscal and monetary initiatives taken by the Indian government and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) helped stabilise financial market conditions, but the domestic macro-economic environment still remains challenging. Economic recovery in the US and Europe had a positive impact on oil demand, which increased by 1.3 million barrels per day (MMBPD) in 2013. Crude oil prices fluctuated extensively, driven by supply concerns in Libya, South Sudan, West Africa and Iraq. Higher US shale oil production helped offset the impact of these disruptions with Brent crude oil prices averaging marginally lower at $ 108.7 per barrel in 2013. Operating in a volatile and uncertain environment, Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) demonstrated the resilience of its business model. RIL’s best-in-class refining configuration and integrated petrochemical business enabled it to deliver robust profits in FY 2013-14. The Company achieved: Highest ever Revenue of ` 4,01,302 crore ($ 67.0 billion) and Net profit of ` 21,984 crore ($ 3.7 billion) Record Exports of ` 2,75,825 crore ($ 46.0 billion) Record Refining ($ 2.2 billion) business EBIT ` 13,220 crore

OVERVIEW
The global economy began its modest recovery in FY 201314 with improved demand from OECD economies in the second half of 2013. While the trend is expected to accelerate in the current year, the positive outlook is subdued by the potential consequences of ‘tapering’ of some of the US Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing (QE) policies which were undertaken in the aftermath of global financial crises. Emerging markets like India faced multiple challenges: capital outflows, intense exchange rate pressures and volatile current account movement. A combination of

Highest ever consolidated Revenue and Net profit of ` 4,46,339 crore ($ 74.5 billion) and ` 22,493 crore ($ 3.8 billion) respectively Dividend of 95%, highest ever payout of ` 3,268 crore ($ 545 million) Operationally, downstream segments continued to deliver superior performance with operating rates of over 100%. RIL processed 68.0 million tonnes (MMT) of crude oil at its Jamnagar refinery complex. The KG-D6 (JV) facility produced 2.31 million barrels (MMBL) of crude and condensate and 178.3 billion cubic feet (BCF) of natural gas. RIL’s share of gross JV production in US Shale was 154 BCFe in 2013 reflecting a growth of 52% over previous year. The Company featured in the Fortune Global 500 list of the world’s largest corporations for the tenth consecutive year and was ranked 107th in terms of revenues and 128th in terms of profits.

Refining – Record earnings
The refining business had a record performance during the year delivering the highest ever annual contribution to the Company’s EBIT. RIL’s refining margins at $ 8.1/bbl significantly outperformed regional benchmarks as the superior configuration of its refineries enabled it to benefit from stable middle distillate margins and widening lightheavy crude oil differentials.

New polyester facility at Silvassa

Petrochemicals – New PFY plant commissioned
Petrochemical business EBIT margins improved to 8.9% from 8.3% in the previous year driving a 17.5% growth in EBIT to ` 8,612 crore, with an improvement in polymer chain margins. Polyester Filament Yarn (PFY) plant at Silvassa was commissioned successfully during FY 2013-14. Three products Partially Oriented Yarn (POY), Fully Drawn Yarn (FDY) and Polyester Textured Yarn (PTY) are being produced at the site and all units are now fully operational. The new PFY plant at Silvassa is one of the most automated and environment friendly plants globally. It is co-located with RIL’s existing texturizing facility at Silvassa eliminating the packaging and logistics costs. The entire production from this facility has been successfully placed in the domestic and international markets. With the commissioning of this ultra-modern PFY facility, RIL’s total PFY capacity, including the facilities at Recron (wholly owned subsidiary in Malaysia) is now in excess of 1.5 MMTPA. The polyester facility is the first amongst a series of projects which will add significantly to RIL’s petrochemical volumes and enhance cost-competitiveness.

Oil & Gas – New discoveries and growth in Shale
The US shale gas business is now a material contributor to RIL’s consolidated profits. The shale business delivered revenues of $ 819 million and EBITDA of $ 616 million in 2013 on the back of a 52% growth in volumes to 154 BCFe. Proved reserves of shale gas increased 43% to 2.66 TCFe. In May 2013, RIL and its partners made a significant gas and condensate discovery (MJ-1) in the KG-D6 block of Krishna Godavari basin, off the eastern coast of India. This discovery is expected to add to the hydrocarbon resources in the KGD6 block. In August 2013, RIL and BP also announced a new gas condensate discovery off India’s east coast in the Cauvery basin. The discovery, in the deepwater block CY-D5, is situated 62 kilometres from the coast in the Cauvery Basin and is the second gas discovery in the block.

Retail business – India’s largest retail chain
Reliance Retail has become India’s largest retailer by revenues. FY 2013-14 revenues grew 34% to ` 14,496 crore, while EBITDA was at ` 363 crore. The retail business also achieved two major milestones in FY 2013-14. It crossed 10 million square feet of retail space and broke even on a net profit basis during the year. The Company enhanced its presence across various format sectors. Reliance Retail now operates 1,691 stores across 146 cities.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued) of India (GoI). RJIL will use this spectrum in conjunction with its pan India 2,300 MHz spectrum acquired earlier to provide seamless 4G services using FDD-LTE on 1,800 MHz and TDD-LTE on 2,300 MHz through an integrated ecosystem. Following the acquisition, RJIL holds the largest quantum of liberalised spectrum, with the longest residual spectrum life. Earlier in the year, RJIL received Unified License for all 22 Service Areas across India and became the first telecom operator in the country to get a pan India license. The license allows RJIL to offer all telecom services including voice telephony under a single license. The Company has migrated from its existing ISP license, along with Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) spectrum, to the Unified License. During the year, Reliance Jio announced telecom infrastructure sharing arrangements with Reliance Communications, Bharti Airtel, Bharti Infratel and Viom Networks. These agreements are aimed at avoiding duplication of infrastructure, whilst also helping to preserve capital and the environment. The infrastructure tie-ups will enable the accelerated roll-out of RJIL’s state-of-the-art 4G services.

Credit rating upgrade
S&P upgraded RIL’s international debt rating to BBB+ with a ‘negative’ outlook, which is now two notches above India’s sovereign rating. The upgrade confirms RIL’s strong financial metrics and liquidity position in the sector.

RIL delivered superior financial performance improvements across key parameters.

growth in revenue was contributed by 8.6% increase in price and 0.9% higher volumes Oil & gas business revenue declined by 26.7% as compared to previous year largely on account of 39.7% decline in production Operating profit before other income and depreciation increased marginally from ` 30,787crore to ` 30,877 crore ($ 5.2 billion) in FY 2013-14 with higher contribution from refining and petrochemical business, partly offset by lower contribution from the upstream business. Higher cost of crude oil and other raw materials in rupee terms resulted in a 7.6% increase in cost of raw materials to ` 3,29,313 crore ($ 55.0 billion). Net operating margin was lower at 7.9% compared to 8.5% in the previous year due to reduced contribution from oil & gas business.

Revenue from operations of ` 4,01,302 crore ($ 67.0 billion), increased 8.1% on a y-o-y basis. Higher prices accounted for 7.7% growth in revenue and increase in volumes accounted for 0.4% growth in revenue.

of higher investible surplus. Other income includes interest income of ` 6,472 crore and investment income of ` 2,348 crore. Interest cost was higher at ` 3,206 crore ($ 535 million) as against ` 3,036 crore in FY 2012-13. With majority of the Company’s borrowing in foreign currency, sharp rupee depreciation during the year negatively impacted interest costs. This resulted in gross interest cost being higher at ` 3,907 crore ($ 652 million) as against ` 3,421 crore in FY 2012-13. Interest capitalised was higher at ` 701 crore ($ 117 million) as against ` 385 crore last year, on account of the large on-going capex programme. Depreciation (including depletion and amortisation) was lower by 7.1% at ` 8,789 crore ($ 1.5 billion) as against ` 9,465 crore in FY 2012-13. This was primarily due to lower depletion charges, in-line with decline in upstream oil & gas production. Tax expenses for the year increased to ` 5,834 crore ($ 974 million) as compared to ` 5,281 crore in the previous year. Profit after tax for the year was at ` 21,984 crore ($ 3.7 billion) an increase of 4.7% over ` 21,003 crore in the previous year. Growth in net profit was led by higher operating income from the refining and petrochemical businesses, higher other income and lower depreciation. The basic and diluted EPS for the year was ` 68.0 per share as compared to ` 64.8 per share in FY 2012-13 registering a growth of 4.9%. The Board of Directors have recommended, subject to approval of shareholders, a dividend of 95% amounting to ` 3,268 crore ($ 545 million), including dividend distribution tax. This shall be the highest payout ever by RIL and balances on-going capex commitments and shareholder interests. Return on capital employed was at 11.5% and return on equity was at 12.9%. Return ratios improved marginally compared to the previous year with stronger performance in refining and petrochemical businesses. RIL’s consolidated revenue from operations for FY 201314 was ` 4,46,339 crore ($ 74.5 billion), an increase of 9.3% on a y-o-y basis. Consolidated profit after tax was at ` 22,493 crore ($ 3.8 billion), an increase of 7.7% against ` 20,879 crore in the previous year. EPS on consolidated basis for the year was at ` 76.5 as against ` 70.7 in the previous year. Key contributors to incremental consolidated revenues and profit were the US shale operations and domestic retail business.

RIL moved from a net cash position at the beginning of the year, to a marginal net debt level during the course of the year as it drew down on funding to part finance the expansion of its petrochemical capacities and setting up the new gasification plant and refinery off-gas cracker over the next two to three years. The Company continued to efficiently manage its shortterm resources by placing them in liquid instruments and highly rated securities, such as bank fixed deposits, CDs, Government securities and corporate bonds. RIL raises capital resources in line with its strategy of extending the average maturity of its long term debt, at a competitive cost and tying up financing at early stages of project execution. RIL continuously undertakes liability management to reduce cost of debt and to diversify its liability mix.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued)
RIL’s financial discipline and prudence is reflected in the strong credit ratings ascribed by rating agencies. In May 2013, S&P upgraded RIL’s international debt rating to BBB+ with a ‘negative’ outlook which is two notches above India’s sovereign rating. S&P’s rating upgrade took cognizance of RIL’s plans to invest significantly in growing its businesses over the next 3 years. S&P believes that the expansion program would further strengthen RIL’s competitive position and profitability. The upgrade confirms RIL’s strong financial metrics and liquidity position in the sector. Moody’s has rated RIL’s international debt at investment grade Baa2, with ‘positive’ outlook which is one notch above India’s sovereign rating. RIL’s long-term debt is rated AAA by CRISIL and ‘Ind AAA’ by Fitch, the highest rating awarded by both these agencies. Similarly, RIL’s short-term debt is rated P1+ by CRISIL, the highest credit rating assigned in this category. RIL’s superior credit profile is reflected in its lending relationships, with over 100 banks and financial institutions having commitments to RIL. In continuation of the fund raising programme initiated in FY 2012-13, RIL tied up facilities of around $ 3.15 billion equivalent to part finance the petrochemical expansions and petcoke gasification projects through landmark transactions. During FY 2013-14, RIL signed $ 500 million equivalent facilities backed by two Export Credit Agencies (ECAs) which included $ 300 million facility from Export Credits Guarantee Department (ECGD), the UK ECA, and $ 200 million equivalent facility from The Compagnie Française d’Assurance pour le Commerce Extérieur (COFACE), the French ECA. These facilities will be drawn over the next two to three years as the projects progress and will have a door-to-door tenor of over 10 to 13 years. These deals were accorded ‘Better than Sovereign’ rating by both the ECAs. This is the first time these agencies accorded such a rating to any corporate in their history, re-emphasising RIL’s creditworthiness in international debt markets. For the ECA deals, RIL has received the ‘TFR Deals of the Year’ award for 2013 from Trade and Forfaiting Review, ‘Deals of the Year 2013’ award from Trade Finance Magazine and ‘GTR Best Deal of 2013’ award from Global Trade Review and ‘TFX Perfect 10 Deals of the Year’ award for 2013 from Trade and Export Finance. The syndicated loan deal of $ 1.75 billion equivalent completed during the year represented the largest bank group in Asia in the last two years. The deal enjoyed a strong participation of 30 international banks, despite turbulent market conditions. This unsecured syndicated loan has a tenor in excess of five years and has one of the longest tenors for a senior unsecured corporate loan in Asia this year. Additionally, loans aggregating $ 900 million were raised through a mix of club and bilateral loans during a period of extreme volatility in INR/USD currency with the INR witnessing sharp depreciation. One of the loans (8.75 years tenor) probably has the longest tenor for a senior unsecured corporate loan in Asia in 2013. During FY 2013-14, Reliance Holding USA Inc. (RHUSA) through its wholly owned subsidiary tied up five year revolving reserve based lending facility with a maximum commitment of $ 300 million to finance the capital expenditure. With this, the total reserve based lending commitments of RHUSA across its subsidiaries aggregates to a maximum of $ 1.3 billion. In addition to this, another wholly owned subsidiary of RHUSA executed a five year unsecured term loan facility with a maximum commitment of $ 350 million.

indicators from USA demonstrated positive sentiments and the country posted strong GDP numbers across the quarters. The EU zone, which had witnessed a recession in 2012, recovered in 2013-14. Emerging markets in contrast struggled to sustain their high growth rates and deal with inflationary pressures. China in particular looks to have moved to a more moderate growth path. Against this mildly positive economic backdrop, oil demand grew by 1.3 MMBPD to 91.4 MMBPD. Non-OECD countries led by China contributed to almost the entire oil demand growth. Relatively sluggish economic activity and increasing energy efficiency has led to a decline in absolute demand in developed economies.

Best Borrower of the Year 2013 in Asia – Finance Asia
During FY 2013-14, Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited raised financing from banks and other institutions aggregating over ` 3,700 crore to part finance the capital expenditure. RIL has also been awarded the ‘Best Borrower of the Year 2013 in Asia’ by Finance Asia and ‘Best Issuer of the Year 2013 in Asia’ by The Asset, two of Asia’s leading financial publications. 97.0% of long-term debt and 62.3% of RIL’s short-term debt were denominated in foreign currencies. The proportion of long-term debt to total debt is 74.7%.

Oil supply
On the supply side, overall supply increased by 0.6 MMBPD, led by Non-OPEC supply which grew by 1.3 MMBPD during 2013 reducing the call on OPEC. Geo-political tension and social unrest in several major oil exporting countries in the Middle East and Africa impacted oil supplies. As a result, there were periods when over 3 MMBPD were removed from the market. The US shale oil revolution has led to a surge in the North American oil production, contributing significantly to the OECD oil supplies. In 2013, US oil production (including NGLs) increased by 1 MMBPD to 10.3 MMBPD, contributing to fundamental changes in global oil trade flows. The increased US oil production is replacing Latin American and West African crude imports into US, resulting in increased flows to Asia.

Oil prices
Countervailing factors impacted oil markets in 2013. The geo-political environment continued to remain volatile leading to supply disruptions. Despite reduced call on OPEC, geo-political concerns on supply outlook together with actual disruptions, kept Brent oil prices in the $ 90 to $ 115 per barrel range that has been established over recent years. Some de-bottlenecking in crude transportation infrastructure, including huge growth in rail facilities, partly helped US crude prices recover versus Brent and Dubai. However, WTI is likely to continue to trade at a discount to global benchmarks due to infrastructure and regulatory constraints. In FY 2013-14, Brent to WTI crude differential narrowed to $ 8.6/bbl as compared to $ 18.1/bbl in FY 2012-13.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued) addition of some simple refining capacity. New capacity also came on-stream in China and in the Middle East – with the Jubail refinery ramping up production during the year. On the positive side - impact of material closures in the Atlantic region last year, high incidences of unplanned outages and delayed commissioning of refineries, provided some support to margins. Demand for refined products was also higher than estimates at the beginning of the year. On an annualised basis margins were weaker as compared to the previous year. The year witnessed significant divergence in regional margins. US refineries benefitted from low energy and cheap feedstock prices. While the narrowing of BrentWTI differential had a negative impact, absolute refining margins in the US continue to be at high levels. Growth in demand emanated largely from the Eastern hemisphere, providing support to Asian margins, including Reliance. European refining margins witnessed dual pressure on account of increased import availability from the US and ME region and weak local demand. Continued margin pressure on European refining system could lead to further capacity rationalisation. RIL refining margins outperformed Singapore benchmark, widening the premium over the benchmark to $ 2.2/bbl during FY 2013-14. RIL benefited from its ability to run advantaged feedstock, flexibility to upgrade low value products and the capacity to switch production to the most valuable product as the market evolved. contributing almost 35% of global oil demand growth. In line with seasonal patterns, gasoil cracks started low in the first quarter but gained strength through the year as demand picked up. Demand for gasoil remained supported by growing industrial activity and a colder-than-expected winter in the US. Subsidies on diesel in most of the emerging Asian economies continue to support strong demand growth. Jet witnessed a low margin environment throughout the year amid ample supplies and warmer weather in North Asia, where kerosene is used for heating. Indian diesel demand shrank by 1%, the first decline in over a decade. This was partly in response to the slowdown in industrial activity and in part due to the removal of subsidies to the commercial sector.

Light distillates
Light ends witnessed a mixed year. Gasoline cracks remained subdued through the major part of the year, except the US driving season and the last quarter of the year. The cracks averaged lower at $ 12.7/bbl during the year as compared to $ 15.4/bbl in the previous year. Naphtha cracks held relatively stable during the first half of the FY 2013-14 amid an increase in naphtha demand from Asian petrochemical sector while the overall naphtha supply swelled. Cracks improved during the second half of the year on back of firm petrochemical demand. Freezing temperatures across US provided significant support to light-ends during the winter period. Material increase in use of propane for heating in US resulted in higher LPG prices globally. This supported naphtha prices as an alternate feedstock for crackers.

the demand side, teakettle refineries reduced throughput and used crude as feedstock due to poor margins, capping further gains. However, FO cracks collapsed in the second half of the year, on account of weak bunker demand in Asia, higher stocks and below average Japanese power sector demand. Cracks improved marginally in January due to seasonal winter demand, lower inflows from west and improved demand as feedstock from teakettle refineries ahead of Lunar New Year. Subsequently, cracks have drifted lower on flat bunker demand. RIL is able to upgrade its heavy liquid products into higher value products, and largely tends to benefit in weakness of fuel oil as it lowers the prices of heavy crude oil.

close to 1.4 MMBPD of crude, is among the largest and most complex refining assets in the world. It is composed of two refinery systems, one of which caters to domestic and export demand while the other is dedicated to the export market. The configuration of the refinery gives RIL the technical ability to process almost all grades of crude oil produced and meet the increasingly differentiated and more demanding product specifications.

Sourcing the most advantageous crude
The crude and supply trading teams select a crude diet using processes that are optimised against the tremendous flexibility of the system, and then source the most advantageous crudes across the globe. To date, the refinery has processed 128 different grades of crudes in addition to other semi-refined feedstock from simple refineries.

Crude differentials
A key determinant of complex refining margins has been the differential between light and heavy crudes. Arab Light – Heavy crude differential widened to $ 4.2/bbl in FY 2013-14 as compared to $ 3.6/bbl in the previous year. Heavier crudes, particularly from Latin American sources were also available at significantly higher differentials during FY 2013-14 with incremental light oil supply in North America. While new refineries that are getting built are increasingly complex and require heavy crudes as feedstock, crude production increase is more on the lighter side over the next few years supporting wider Light-Heavy differentials in the coming years. New refinery additions and expansions in existing refineries were partly offset by closures in the US, Europe and Japan, leading to a net capacity addition of about 0.9 MMBPD; oil demand growth was higher at 1.3 MMBPD, with a reversal of the declining trend in OECD demand witnessed over the last three years. These refinery closures also resulted in improved average refinery utilisation rates in North America (84.8% in 2013 compared to 84.1% in 2012). However, in Europe, utilisation rates (76.4% compared to 79.8% in 2012) decreased due to weak margins. Asian operating rates were at 85.4%.

Flexibility to alter the products
The configuration of RIL’s assets also allows for tremendous amount of flexibility to alter the product slate and thus adapt to the changing market dynamics. The facilities at Jamnagar enable RIL to produce products capable of meeting the most stringent environmental norms, even after processing high sulphur feedstock. This gives RIL a competitive advantage in catering to the needs of many markets across the world. This year Jamnagar produced seven new product grades, catering to specific needs, helping RIL penetrate into high value niche markets. Significant flexibility to increase the production by a scale of 2-3 times in Jet and Alkylate and grade switching capabilities in gasoil help RIL capture market opportunities.

Integrated supply and trading
RIL’s integrated Supply and Trading team works with the refinery on a real time basis to optimise the asset utilisation and place RIL’s products most profitably across the globe. RIL’s global footprint includes trading offices in Houston, London, Singapore and Mumbai which gives it a global coverage for crude supplies and market outlets. The product trading team identifies the market shorts and collectively places the products in the highest netback regions. Tankage

R&M segment had a record year with the highest ever annual EBIT of ` 13,220 crore. Gross Refining Margin (GRM) averaging $ 8.1/bbl, as against $ 9.2/bbl in FY 2012-13. EBIT increased on account of stable middle distillate cracks, improved light-heavy crude differentials and favourable currency movement. Though refining margins remained weaker compared to last year, RIL performed significantly better than the benchmark Singapore GRM which averaged at $ 5.9/bbl during the year. RIL refineries processed 68 MMT of crude oil during the year, at an operating rate of 110%. It processed 10 new crude grades during the year, taking the total number of crudes processed to 128. Total exports of refined products reached $ 41.1 billion during the year compared to $ 39.3 billion for the previous year. Overall, effective utilisation of secondary processing units, innovative approach to optimise logistics cost and utilisation, production flexibility to swing to higher net-back products and sourcing of best value feed stock enabled RIL to sustain its performance even in a challenging margin environment.

Retail distribution network
GAPCO group owns and operates large storage facilities and has a retail distribution network in Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya. It has significantly improved its standing in the East African market and has emerged as a key supplier to the neighbouring countries. During 2013, 3.2 million Kilo Litres (mkLs) of petroleum products were sold, up from 1.74 mkLs in 2012. On the domestic retail side, nearly 300 retail outlets are operational, mainly in Southern and Western India. There have been some positive signs in the market, with step-wise price deregulation, but resuming operations in all geographies and scaling up of sales will be possible after complete implementation of market determined prices for gasoline and diesel.

Capex and growth plans
Petcoke gasification project – utilising the “bottom of barrel”
One of RIL’s key strategies, going forward, is setting up the petcoke gasification project which is expected to put RIL’s energy and hydrogen costs at par or better than the refineries in the US, where natural gas prices have fallen dramatically with the shale revolution. The project is designed to deliver a step change reduction in energy costs, substituting imported LNG with Coke /Coal. The project is based on the “E-gas technology” (owned by CB&I) and is currently in the execution stage. Engineering and Procurement activities are nearing completion and construction activities are progressing rapidly. Delivery of key units has started at the site. Construction of the petcoke storage dome in Gasification complex is in the final stages of completion. RIL is aiming for a phased start-up of the gasifiers. Manpower resources and construction plans are aligned to execute the project on schedule. The coke gasification project is designed to run on both coal and petcoke, giving RIL the flexibility to optimise based on relative economics. RIL is looking for various sourcing options for petcoke from the refiners in India, Middle East and North America. RIL is also evaluating coal import options from key coal exporting countries – Australia, Indonesia and South Africa. The gasification assets, delivered with Reliance’s project execution capabilities, are expected to enhance its refining profitability significantly. This project is expected to make RIL’s energy costs competitive with the best in the industry.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued)
PETROCHEMICALS
RIL is one of the most integrated petrochemicals producers globally, with operations ranging from the production of feedstock and intermediates to end products in both the polyester and polymer chain. This vertical integration from refining to petrochemical end products imparts RIL with the fundamental strength of feedstock safety, scalability, product diversification and economies of scale. RIL has a balanced portfolio of naphtha and gas based crackers, along with matching downstream capacities. RIL’s petrochemical products portfolio includes polymers (PE, PP, PVC), fibre intermediates (PX, PTA, MEG), polyester products (PFY, PSF, PET), elastomers and solvents. The combination of world-scale capacity and deep integration has a positive impact on the Company’s operating margins and reduces exposure to the cyclicality of markets and raw material prices. The Company believes that this strategy is also important in maintaining domestic market leadership in its major product lines and is a source of competitive advantage. RIL constantly focuses on technology, cost improvements and safe practices, whilst continuing to invest in high growth opportunities.

Market Environment
Olefins and Polymers
Ethylene is the base raw material used in manufacturing of polymers like Polyethylene (PE), Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polystyrene, and chemicals like ethylene oxide and ethylene glycols. The development of US shale gas reserves has had a profound impact on the global chemical industry. With prices for ethane, the primary US ethylene feedstock, down 60% versus its historical averages, the US is today the second lowest cost region in the world to produce chemicals (after the Middle East). Today, 69% of US ethylene is produced from ethane versus 17% from propane and 6% from naphtha. In contrast, Europe and Asia, which have limited amounts of natural gas, developed as crude oil based chemical producing regions. Naphtha, a derivative of crude oil, is the primary ethylene feedstock in these regions. Global ethylene operating rates improved marginally to 85.8% in 2013, higher than the five-year average of 85.4%. Ethylene prices and margins increased globally, supported by stable crude oil and naphtha prices, along with tight supply due to regional cracker turnarounds. Asian ethylene margins improved during the year led by firm PE demand, despite high ethylene prices.

Global incremental ethylene supplies are likely to be constrained in 2014 due to project delays. The current expectation for incremental capacities in 2014 is 37% lower as compared to early 2013 estimates of 7.3 MMTPA. Major project delays are largely in the North East Asian region. The global ethylene cycle is likely to stay strong over the next 3-4 years with the next major wave of capacity addition (US shale gas based) expected from 2017-18. This could be further delayed due to engineering and construction bottlenecks. Even with key pieces of equipment likely to be built offshore, availability of skilled labour is likely to be a limiting factor for the rate and cost at which new US ethylene capacity comes on-line. The global thermoplastics market in 2013 was estimated at 208 MMT. PE accounted for 39%, Polypropylene (PP) 27% and PVC 19%, respectively, of the global thermoplastic market. Demand for these polymers (PE, PP, PVC) grew by 3.4% during 2013 driven by North America, China and marginal improvement in European market. The demand for these polymer products is likely to grow at CAGR of approximately 4% over the next five year period.

FY 2012-13 482 134 535 Polyester markets are expected to witness capacity growth in excess of demand growth. These excess capacities are likely to impact operating rates and profitability. Polyester producers having presence in end products and fibre intermediates are relatively better placed due to integrated chain economics. Across western economies demand improved, but it was still marked by discretionary buying and cautious optimism. Asia’s share in global consumption stands at 37%. China accounts for 30% of the global capacity and 55% of the global capacity growth of 2.8 MMT in 2013. Recycled PET usage growth almost halved with only North America witnessing stable growth. PET markets are likely to witness higher capacity growth over demand, which may result in softening of deltas. The key consuming sector – beverages – is sensitive to discretionary spending trends and weather, which could have an adverse impact on consumption.

FY 2013-14 595 150 468

PP deltas improved (from $ 134/MT to $ 150/MT) during FY 2013-14. Year-average deltas were positively impacted as higher propylene inventories in the region and lower downstream activity in China which kept feedstock prices lower. In 2014, propylene supply is expected to lengthen in Asia as new crackers in China and Taiwan start production. HDPE deltas improved significantly during the year from $ 482/MT to $ 595/MT. Deltas were strong due to firm product prices with limited supply and range bound naphtha prices. Ethylene prices were higher due to lower supply from South East Asia on account of heavy cracker maintenance schedule. Additionally, olefin shipments from Middle East were limited due to port congestion and start-up of downstream polymer units. China’s drive for self-sufficiency continues to reshape Asia’s olefin trade and margin environment with increased regional availability. However, the global ethylene cycle continues to be poised favourably with operating rates likely to remain high to meet demand growth. PVC deltas declined (from $ 535/MT to $ 468/MT) as there was substantial rise in EDC prices due to higher ethylene prices on account of higher feedstock cost and tight supply. EDC prices and supply were also affected by lower chlorine availability in the US market (co-product chlorine was impacted due to weak caustic markets) amidst rising US PVC demand. Globally, improvement in the US construction sector is likely to enhance manufacturing activity and demand for PVC-based products like profiles, among others.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued) the year. The margins declined from the previous year as naphtha prices remained firm, and acceptability of PX prices by the strained PTA sector remained weak, amidst divergent views about the impact of the impending new capacity start-up. Large-scale PX capacity expansions are planned for 2014. However many of the new capacities are based on high cost feedstock such as heavy condensate, heavy naphtha and mixed xylenes which would impair operations, leaving primarily the integrated and the low cost based operations with a competitive advantage. High industry capacity impacted prices and margins for PTA, which for most part of the year remained below break-even levels, exerting severe pressure on operating economics. PTA capacity growth is expected to continue to surpass demand growth, albeit at a slower rate. Plant operations not falling under the top two quartiles of cost curve would continue to witness rationalisation, either as shut downs or lower operating rates. Operating rates are likely to remain low; however, margins could improve as increased supply of PX will ease price pressure. MEG markets were balanced with a capacity growth of 1.5 MMT against a demand growth of 1.2 MMT in 2013. Average prices and margins remained stable and operating rates were slightly higher at 82%. Though markets remained balanced, it was subject to speculation and polyester buyers resorted to holding lower stocks along with co-feedstock PTA. Chinese port stocks increased steadily during the year, reaching around 1 MMT at year end. This increase pressurised margins, pulling them below the five-year average. MEG markets are expected to maintain a stable operating rate.

production. The demand from styrene sector (accounting for 50% of Benzene demand) remained firm. Asian operating rates remained healthy, and the region was a major exporter to other markets. Domestic consumption was almost flat as no new major consumption unit was commissioned. Benzene markets are likely to witness a capacity growth of 2.5 MMTPA, mostly in Asia and US benzene demand is expected to recover in alignment with its economic revival. Increasing use of light feedstock (shale gas) is likely to limit feedstock availability for benzene production, resulting in tight supply and firm prices. Butadiene: In 2013, butadiene global capacity was 13.4 MMT with 78% operating rate. Demand grew at 3% based on the previous year driven by PBR, Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), ABS and SB Latex, primarily catering to automobile industry. SBR and PBR markets in Asia have had a poor run last year and demand is yet to recover. Most butadiene consuming

Chemicals and Elastomers
During the year, the global chemical business scenario was mixed with high feedstock prices and low demand growth; but with low capacity addition. In the elastomers segment globally, the auto industry is going through a difficult period, which is impacting PBR, SBR and Butyl rubber consumption. With Asia’s subdued demand and major capacity additions, margins remained under pressure. In FY 2013-14, the Indian auto sector contracted for the first time in the last decade, which impacted, the primary consumer of synthetic rubbers. Benzene: Globally, benzene markets remained tight, supporting margins above their five-year average level. Margins for the year averaged at $ 400/MT, around 9% higher y-o-y. Although margins remained healthy, global operating rates were around 66% with a production of 44 MMT during 2013. Raw material shortage in the US and Europe and poor refinery economics impacted benzene

plants in Asia especially China have been operating at reduced rates leading to oversupply of butadiene in the region. This has put pressure on butadiene prices; on a Y-o-Y basis butadiene price have fallen by around 30% in the region. There has been no corresponding fall in butadiene feedstock prices; which has led to erosion in margin for butadiene manufacturers. Indian butadiene demand grew by 3% to 116 KTA as against capacity of 300 KTA, making it a net exporter in the global markets. Domestic demand growth is expected to increase due to the start-up of new synthetic rubber plants planned for in the near future. Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB): LAB is mostly consumed as surfactant intermediate for detergents. Global LAB capacity is around 3.8 MMTPA with 85% capacity utilisation. While the global demand growth is at 2%, for Asia it is 5%, indicating emergence of Asia as a key LAB consumption region. Middle Eastern countries have a very limited domestic LAB market whilst India being at close proximity becomes their natural export market. This allows for low priced imports to be available in the country. The current Indian LAB capacity is 520 KTA while the overall demand is of around 500 KT. LAB demand in India grew by 2.5% during the year. Additional capacity expansions in Saudi Arabia and China as well as renewed availability of Iranian material are expected to put pressure on domestic LAB manufacturers. Polybutadiene Rubber (PBR): PBR is used mainly in the automobile sector. Global PBR consumption for FY 2013-14 remained weak due to lower off-take from the automobile sector. There was significant capacity addition in China during 2013, which, coupled with the slowdown in global economy kept the operating rates of PBR plants at lower levels (approximately 72%). Major manufacturers in China and Korea operated at even lower rates of 50-60% due to weak regional demand. During FY 2013-14, automobile sales in India excluding 2-wheelers witnessed de-growth. Despite this slowdown, PBR consumption in India increased by 8% due to strong demand from the replacement market.

India Demand Growth

1.5x GDP Growth expected in per capita plastic consumption and stable economy is likely to propel India’s per capita consumption of polymers. During FY 2013-14, polymer demand in India grew by 3%. This was driven by 5% growth in PP, 2% growth in PVC and 1% growth in PE demand. Petrochemical demand growth in India during FY 2013-14 was low compared to last 5 and 10 year average growth rates. The lower demand growth can be attributed to economic slowdown, deferment of capital expenditure by the government on infrastructure, currency volatility and liquidity crunch caused by higher interest rates. Overall, PP demand was moderately higher as there was growth in some of the end-use packaging applications. However, PP demand was negatively affected by poor demand from cement packaging and automobile sector. In PVC market, pipe demand was flat due to extended monsoon and high inventory of finished goods. During the year, India imported around 1 MMT of PVC in line with previous year’s imports. Overall, PE demand was soft as end-use sector consumption was affected by slower growth in infrastructure, fertilizer sectors and roto-moulded products. PVC domestic demand growth during 2013-18 is expected to be at 6.7% CAGR. However, long-term growth prospects are positive on account of the government’s focus on infrastructure development and low per capita consumption. During the year, 0.7 MMTPA of polymer capacity was added in India (mainly in PP and PVC). Total market demand for PE, PP and PVC was 9.3 MMT in 2013, and it is estimated to

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued) reach 13.7 MMT by 2018, a CAGR of 8%. During the same period, around 3.5 MMTPA of total polymer capacity is likely to be added, including RIL’s on-going capacity expansions. Polyester: Indian all fibre textile mill consumption in 2013 was estimated at 9 MMT, 7% up over previous year. Of this, cotton and polyester are major textile fibres consumed, and account for almost 90% of all fibre consumed. In India, the current share of cotton and man-made fibre demand is around 55:45 compared to around 35:65 globally. Indian all fibre demand is expected to reach a market size of around 13 MMT by 2020 and 17.5 MMT by 2030. India is ideally positioned to see an impressive stage of growth with favourable demographics and dependent population rate growing slower than the workforce. In line with global trends this would pave the way for larger man-made fabric base, benefiting the polyester industry at large. The domestic polyester industry witnessed mixed market sentiments during FY 2013-14, reflecting an overall moderate and cautious growth pattern. During the year, domestic polyester demand grew by 6% on y-o-y basis, led by 7% growth in PFY, 6% growth in PET and 2% growth in PSF. The first quarter of the year witnessed healthy demand growth for all polyester variants due to seasonal upturn and active restocking activities. However, in the second quarter of the fiscal, the polyester demand turned cautious amidst volatility in the feedstock prices and the Indian Rupee. Fully Drawn Yarn (FDY) markets, however, witnessed good growth due to import substitution and growing applications in warp knits and embroidery segments. PET market growth was stunted owing to the longer monsoons and prolonged winter, while PSF growth was affected due to the replacement by recycled fibres and filament yarns in certain market segments. During FY 2013-14, Indian textile and clothing exports increased by 14% y-o-y. Textile industry-friendly policies and schemes were announced by the GoI and several states to encourage the sector’s value-addition and growth.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued) texturizing facility at Silvassa eliminating packaging and logistics costs. This coupled with integration with PTA will make the Silvassa facility amongst the lowest cost PFY producing sites globally. This expansion further strengthens RIL’s position as the world’s largest producer of Polyester Fibre and Yarn with total polyester capacity of 2.8 MMTPA. RIL maintained its domestic market leadership position with 20% share in PFY, 67% share in PSF and 41% share in PET. RIL is the world’s 5th largest producer of PX, 9th largest producer of PTA and 8th largest producer of MEG. RIL retained its pre-eminent position in the domestic fibre intermediate market with 59% share in PX, 47% share in PTA and 37% share in MEG. RIL’s Malaysian operations enhanced polyester market share in Asia primarily in Korea, Indonesia and Vietnam. The drivers were value-added products and superior customer service, prompt deliveries and consistent quality. The operations enhanced textiles market share in Turkey by fully leveraging improved demand and developed new markets in Mexico. RIL optimised logistics cost by procuring from closer facilities, and sold MEG from its own plants to other nearby external polyester facilities. As in-house demand increases during the next fiscal, RIL will divert more in-house volumes while simultaneously optimising external sources to increase profitability. Silage Bag, available in capacity of 100 to 9,000 kg, is an ideal replacement of concrete and mud silos. It has unique advantages like being lightweight, foldable, portable and reusable. PP nonwoven crop cover is now a proven application to protect vegetables from frost and insects. Development work with farmers of Rajasthan and National Horticulture Mission (NHM) has led to growing crop cover use for many vegetables and fruits. Apart from high yield, this crop cover also reduces pesticides usage to a great extent, making the product environment friendly. RIL developed flexible pouch for milk packaging to improve shelf life at ambient temperature up to 30 days. The Extended Shelf Life (ESL) milk packaging will enable packaging and storing of milk without refrigeration. RIL developed in-house multilayer polyfilm structures with better barrier to oxygen and 100% opacity. RIL successfully developed ’Ultra-clear Repol SRX 100’ PP grade for refrigerator parts, clear containers, among others. New products are economical due to low density (lesser weight), and provide excellent contact clarity, freedom from breakages and good aesthetics. Polyesters: During the year, RIL introduced many premium apparel and non-apparel products, which were widely accepted by customers. Some of the products are slub yarn, which gives a linen-like look and feel, and sparkle and shimmer yarn which adds a shining effect in evening wear. Recron pre-coloured fibres are making ways for new application in denim fabrics. On the industrial usage front, Recron UVS yarn imparts an enhanced protection against sunlight exposure and is ideal for technical uses as geotextiles, awnings, etc. In packaging segment, RIL has developed PET with barrier properties for use in flavoured milk, syrups and pharmaceutical sector and cobalt free PET as a green packaging initiative.

progressing as per scheduled timelines and are expected to be commissioned in phases over the next two years. With these expansions, RIL is expected to emerge as the third largest producer of PTA and the second largest producer of PX in the world. With the coordination in expansion of feedstock and downstream polyester products, the feedstock security and consumption markets have been addressed, and RIL will continue to benefit from the chain delta economics. All expansions are world scale and use state-of-the-art technology which ensures advantageous cost of operations alongside savings in packaging and logistic costs. Being strategically located close to the consumption centres, allows for easy access and benefits the targeted markets with an economical and reliable source of raw materials. The surplus capacity in the intermediates business has impacted both prices and margins in the past year. However with the economy and consumption being at the bottom of down-cycle, RIL start-ups would be ideally placed at a time when demand would emerge. In addition to this the limited exposure to externalities would sheath the impacts allowing maximum benefits in the integrated chain. The petrochemical capacity additions are aimed at serving growing Indian consumption and will further strengthen RIL’s leadership position in the domestic market. The new SBR project (150 KTPA) and PBR project (40 KTPA) are progressing well and are expected to commence production in FY 2014-15. Additionally, RIL has broken ground for its 100 KTPA butyl rubber facility in partnership with Sibur at Jamnagar. This is a significant step towards the Company’s commitment to service India’s growing automotive sector by bringing in complex technologies.

same site. The new cracker has a capacity of 1.4 MMTPA and will use refinery off gases as feedstock. This is likely to be among the world’s largest ethylene crackers and will reap the benefits of economies of scale. Additionally, by virtue of complex integration with Company’s existing refineries at the same site, the plant will be in the top quartile in terms of global cost competitiveness. Currently, significant construction activity is underway at the site and long-lead items have been ordered. RIL is undertaking de-bottlenecking activities for PP at Jamnagar and for PVC at Dahej. RIL is undertaking a large expansion across the polyester value chain, taking advantage of feedstock linkages and domestic market growth. During the year, RIL commissioned one of the most automated PFY facilities in the world at Silvassa. The commissioning of this facility marks the beginning of the mega petrochemical expansion of RIL. Other expansions in the polyester chain include 2.3 MMTPA of PTA 2.3 MMTPA of PX and 0.6 MMTPA of PET which are

OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION BUSINESS Market environment and outlook
Crude oil
2013 witnessed a rebound in global oil demand, which increased by 1.3 MMBPD, tracking the economic recovery in the US and Europe. Supply concerns in Libya, South Sudan, West Africa and Iraq were offset by higher US shale oil production resulting in Brent crude oil prices averaging marginally lower at $ 108.7/ barrel (bbl) during 2013 as compared to $ 111.6/bbl in 2012. During the year 2013, the US emerged as the second largest producer of crude oil behind Russia as a consequence of higher shale oil production. The success story of shale was driven by the policy of free market pricing of gas, mineral rights vested with land owners and excellent rail/pipeline infrastructure to evacuate gas and liquids.

to average $ 2.83/MMBTU in 2012, but the severe 2013/14 winter (the 3rd coldest winter on record) resulted in a sharp increase in gas prices. Supported by low gas storage levels, prices are sustaining levels of $ 4.50 to $ 5.00/MMBTU and this is reflected in analysts’ price estimate outlook for 2014.

Supply chain
As per research estimates, global E&P capital expenditure will grow from around $ 451 billion in 2013 to reach $ 656 billion by 2020. Out of the current capex figure, nearly $ 127 billion is earmarked for offshore development and this is expected to touch $ 224 billion by 2020. Demand is picking up in regions including North America (unconventional), East Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East. Of these, Asia and the Middle East are amongst the fastest growing regions in the world for upstream capital expenditure and account for nearly 27% of all the upstream expenditure in the world. Availability of rigs, particularly deepwater rigs remained constrained, and day rates stayed firm. The industry also suffers from manpower shortages and currently has a high level of vacancies in key disciplines and is confronted with an expertise gap.

As the underlying economic fundamentals for the global economy maintain their momentum, oil demand in 2014 is expected to increase by 1.3 MMBPD (Source: IEA), keeping prices range bound. Oil markets entered 2014 with the lowest commercial oil inventories in over twenty years, for the three major OECD markets — US, Europe and Japan. Spare capacity is also low and largely concentrated in the Middle East whilst incremental supply is likely to be driven by US crude production. Oversupply of light sweet crude in the US Gulf Coast market has pushed out US imports of Oil, effectively disconnecting Brent prices from WTI/LLS prices. In the US market, crude oil production growth is expected to remain strong, primarily concentrated in the Bakken, Eagle Ford and Permian regions. EIA forecasts the US production to increase from 7.4 MMBPD in 2013 to 9.1 MMBPD by 2015. WTI crude prices remain strong in view of geo-political tensions and continuous reduction in Cushing inventories.

Market environment - India
India’s gas demand is expected to treble over the next decade, rising from 150 million metric standard cubic metre per day (MMSCMD) to exceed 517 MMSCMD by 2022 (Source: PNGRB). This demand escalation would be driven by multiple factors: environmental concerns, convenience of use and cost advantage over other fossil fuels. Indian LNG imports are also expected to increase threefold by around 2020. Currently, India imports 34% of its gas needs at prices indexed to oil. Indian LNG prices are likely to be indexed to oil for the foreseeable future, driven by global benchmarks and higher costs of new projects in Australia and East Africa. According to the IEA, to meet energy security needs, India needs upstream investment of nearly $ 176 billion from 2013 to 2035. This implies an annual investment of about $ 8 billion. The IHS CERA estimates (issued in April 2013) show that nearly 91 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of gas in India’s basins can be unlocked at $ 12+ per MMBTU. An enabling regulatory environment and a regime for free market pricing may facilitate enhanced investments and a robust energy security landscape. As part of the transition towards free market pricing, during the year, Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) approved a new gas pricing formula for a period of five

US natural gas

The importance of natural gas is expected to grow considerably owing to abundant supply, competitive supply costs vis-à-vis liquid fuels and environmental advantages over other fossil fuels. Since the turn of the century, global gas use has expanded on average by 2.7% annually – faster than oil or nuclear energy. In the US markets also, the growth in natural gas production is likely to continue in the near term, driven by sustained growth in rich gas or associated gas of liquid area. US natural gas production grew by 1.2% y-o-y in 2013 reaching a level of 66.53 BCF/D. Growing domestic production over the past several years has displaced some pipeline imports from Canada, while exports to Mexico have increased. EIA projects United States to be net exporter of gas beginning in 2018. The market has responded to this growth by adding processing capacities and other necessary infrastructure for gas. Gas prices in the US market, which are quite sensitive to weather have seen strengthening over last three years. A warmer than normal 2011/12 winter resulted in gas prices

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued)
Expanding resource base through successful exploration initiatives
RIL along with JV partners made two significant hydrocarbon discoveries in FY 2013-14, i.e. Discovery (D-55) in well MJ1 drilled in the block KG-D6 situated in the Krishna Godavari basin and Discovery (D-56) in exploration block CY-D5 situated in the Cauvery basin. Discovery D-55 – Discovery in development area of block KG-D6 (D1-D3 field): The KG-D6-MJ1 well was drilled in a water depth of 1,024 metres, and to a total depth of 4,509 metres, to explore the prospects of a Mesozoic Synrift Clastic reservoir, lying over 2,000 metres below the already producing reservoirs in the D1-D3 gas fields. Formation evaluation indicates a gross gas and condensate column in the well of about 155 metres in the Mesozoic reservoirs. In drill stem testing, the well flowed at 30.6 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) and 2,121 Barrels of Oil per Day (BOPD). The discovery, named ‘D-55’, has been notified to the GoI. Discovery D-56 – Discovery in block CY-D5: As part of the minimum work program in this block, exploratory well CYIII-D5-S1 which was drilled in a water depth of 1,743 metres, to a total depth of 5,731 metres, with the primary objective of exploring Mesozoic-aged reservoirs has resulted in gas condensate discovery. The formation evaluation indicated a gross gas and condensate column in the well of about 143 metres in the Mesozoic-aged reservoirs. In drill stem testing, the well flowed at 35.2 MMSCFD and 413 BOPD. The discovery, named ‘D-56’, has been notified to the GoI. This is the second discovery in the block which will enable scope for integration of all discoveries for early monetisation.

Progress towards next wave of development projects KG-D6
R-Cluster Development: Management Committee approval for the Field Development Plan (FDP) has been received. This is part of the next wave of projects in KG-D6 with ultimate recoverable reserves of around 1.2-1.4 TCF. The expected gas production rate will be in the range of 12 MMSCMD, significantly increasing utilisation of existing KG-D6 facilities. As part of the development activity, the Concept and FEED have been completed and the sourcing, contracting for the long lead items for the projects have also been initiated.

Appraisal of MJ1 discovery
As part of the appraisal program, the first appraisal well was successfully drilled. It has encountered approximately 130 meters of hydrocarbon column. For effective reservoir characterisation, a high end seismic activity was completed. Based on current understanding, this discovery is a material one and all efforts are being made to accelerate the commerciality assessment of this significant discovery for expeditious monetisation.

Satellite / Other Satellite discoveries
Since the approval of Optimized Field Development Plan (OFDP) for 4 Satellite discoveries, the JV, based on drilling of development well and D1-D3 field performance has recalibrated the reservoir models. With respect to the Other Satellite discoveries (D29, D30 & D31), the Declaration of Commerciality (DOC) is pending with Management Committee for review awaiting resolution on Drill Stem Testing (DST) issue. The JV has already submitted a proposal to do DST in the wells and is hopeful of an early resolution of the issue. Meanwhile, JV has undertaken Concept updation, Geotechnical, Geophysical & Geohazard Surveys and Front End Engineering Design (FEED). With the purpose of efficiently developing these Discoveries an integrated scheme of development is being conceptualised.

Portfolio management
During the year, as part of on-going portfolio management, RIL has relinquished 4 exploration blocks including KGDWN-2004/4, MN-DWN-2004/1, MN-DWN-2004/2 and KGDWN-2005/2.

Shahdol – Phulpur gas pipeline project
Petroleum And Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) has issued the Grant of Authorisation in June 2013 to Reliance Gas Pipeline Limited, a subsidiary of RIL, for a natural gas pipeline from Shahdol in Madhya Pradesh to Phulpur in Uttar Pradesh (hook-up point with GAIL’s HVJ pipeline) to transport gas from RIL’s CBM blocks. Land acquisition has been completed for all critical installations and obtaining of Right of Use (ROU) for laying the pipeline is under way. Basic engineering (FEED) is completed and detailed engineering is in progress. Ordering for long lead items has been completed and awarding of construction contract is in the final stages.

Overall, oil and gas revenues for the current year were lower by 26.7% at ` 6,068 crore, compared to the previous year. This was largely on account of lower production and lower liquid price realisation, partly offset by a higher exchange rate realisation. Earnings before Interest and Tax (EBIT) declined by 43.7 % to ` 1,626 crore, compared to the previous year due to lower production, partly offset with correspondingly lower depletion charges.

Measures taken for sustaining production from existing fields
As part of multiple initiatives to sustain production and enhance recovery from the D1-D3 and MA fields, RIL successfully drilled and completed a development well MA-08 in MA field and commenced production from January 2014. This has resulted in additional gas production of approximately 2.2 MMSCMD. Other enhanced gas recovery projects underway include: i) water shut off jobs and side track activities in the existing shut in wells, and ii) Engineering and construction activities for booster compression – target completion in 2015.

The block produced 178.3 BCF of natural gas and 2.3 MMBBL of crude oil and condensate in FY 2013-14, a 47% and a 30% reduction for natural gas and crude oil/condensate, respectively. Production volumes for the year were lower on account of geological complexity, natural decline in the fields and higher than envisaged water ingress. This decline is partially offset by additional gas production from the new development well MA-08.

Panna-Mukta JV
The Panna-Mukta JV carried out significant drilling activities during the current year, drilling six wells in the PL area and six infill wells in the PJ and PG areas. These activities yielded additional volume that helped in partially arresting production decline. As part of the Mukta field development, the Joint venture submitted and received approval for Mukta “B” development from the Management Committee. The estimated recoverable reserves from Mukta “B” area is approximately 3.56 MMBBL of oil and 9.16 BCF of gas during the Production Sharing Contract (PSC) period. First oil from this development is expected in FY 2015-16.

PMT block discover new plays and operators continue to find economic ways of exploiting this resource. The US market is business friendly and actionable with an abundance of financing options that make it possible for leaner and smaller players to gain a position of importance in the market. RIL has leveraged its cost leadership experience in its shale joint ventures and with its truly global outlook has quickly become a sustainable and a major shale gas player. Reliance has, till date, invested $ 7.0 billion in its joint ventures with Pioneer Natural Resources, Carrizo and Chevron.

The Panna Mukta field delivered 7.4 MMBBL of crude oil and 65.4 BCF of natural gas in FY 2013-14; 9% and 8% reductions in crude oil and natural gas respectively. The decrease in the production volumes for the year was due to a 17-day shutdown for field maintenance activities including commissioning of new SPM system coupled with natural decline. The Tapti field delivered 0.3 MMBBL of condensate and 27.3 BCF of natural gas in FY 2013-14; 48% and 38% declines in condensate and natural gas respectively. The decrease was due to the under-performance of new wells, as well as the natural decline in reserves. During the year, the Tapti field witnessed lower production from the existing wells due to natural decline. Also, the results of the new infill wells drilled were not encouraging. Consequent to this, JV re-assessed the reserve estimates through an independent consultant and revised the ultimate recoverable reserves. The JV is preparing for abandonment of this field in consultation with GoI.

JV. The overall capex during the year was $ 1.4 billion, lower by 35% over the previous year on account of reduced carry obligations and moderated development pace at Marcellus. Several initiatives were taken up to ensure sustainable growth of the business by increasing resource recovery, reducing costs and higher productivity. New development concepts such as down spaced wells, drilling in upper Eagle Ford and upper Marcellus were pursued. These will positively impact reserve accretion as well. Cost and recovery optimisation initiatives like multi well-pad drilling and longer laterals were successfully pursued. In CY 2013, the RIL-Shale Gas Operations (RIL-SGO) posted a 43% reserve accretion with year-end proved reserves at 2.66 TCFe. These Proved reserves are about 30% of total resource base underscoring significant development upside. Reserves were positively impacted by benefits of additional well locations in Pioneer and Carrizo joint ventures marking development upside. During 2013, the joint ventures drilled 252 wells and put 237 wells on production taking the cumulative number of producing wells to 622 at the end of the year as compared to 385 producing wells at the end of 2012. Reliance witnessed an improvement in efficiencies and cost reductions in development activities for 2013 over the previous year. The focus was on leveraging knowledge on acreage sweet spots and preserving optionality on dry gas acreage.

The share of liquids increased to 64% in 2013 reflecting growth in activity in oil-rich acreage. On-going development thrust on infill drilling, down spaced and upper Eagle Ford development provided for additional potential locations leading to growth in proved reserves by 34% at year-end 2013.

Chevron Upstream JV
The JV saw production growing over 100% from previous year at 91 BCFe and achieved an exit rate of 328 MMCFeD. The JV witnessed impressive growth in proved reserves going up 79% from year-end 2012 to year-end 2013. JV is pursuing paced development in view of the challenging pricing environment while retaining optionality on acreages through low cost lease renewals.

Carrizo Upstream JV
In view of a challenging price differential environment, Carrizo JV deferred bringing some wells online as per original schedule which led to curtailment in production. In spite of this, the JV production of 40 BCFe reflected a 78% increase over the previous year and the JV achieved an exit rate of 138 MMCFeD at the end of 2013. Carrizo JV focused on portfolio optimisation through the sale of suboptimal acreage in Sullivan County in the fourth quarter of CY 2013. While year-end 2013 reserves were largely unchanged, Carrizo added potential well locations due to Upper Marcellus development plan down spacing.

Domestic Gas Pricing
The Contractor was entitled to a revised gas price from 1st April 2014. The government notified “The Domestic Gas Pricing Guidelines, 2014” on 10th January 2014. The notification required the Government to intimate quarterly prices on the basis of the approved formula. In view of the Model Code of Conduct which is in place for the Parliamentary Elections, the Government approached the Election Commission for permission prior to notifying the applicable process for quarter 1st April to 30th June 2014. The Election Commission has advised after taking into account all relevant facts that the intimation of the price of gas sales for the quarter be deferred. In view of the Election Commission recommendation, the MoPNG has directed the Contractor to continue to charge the earlier prices even after 1st April 2014. Accordingly, the Contractor is selling gas to its customers at the price of $ 4.2/ MMBTU, on a provisional basis. The Contractor is entitled under the

Discretionary spending among urban consumers was also impacted by escalating food prices. Growth in private final consumption expenditure (PFCE) of 2.5% in 3Q of FY 201314 (2Q FY 2013-14: 3%) was the second lowest growth observed in the last 37 quarters. (Source: Central Statistics Office – 3rd Quarter GDP Estimates, February 28, 2014). The result is a bleak domestic scenario in which consumer confidence and business optimism have remained below expectations. India’s Retail industry, estimated at over $ 500 billion in 2012 (Source: Deloitte – Indian Retail Market Opening More Doors, January 2013), has evolved considerably in the last few years. However, organised retail is still in its infancy stage with 12 million kirana shops strengthening the sector’s backbone. While modern retail is resilient to economic cycles owing to its fundamental growth drivers, improvements in the overall consumer sentiment will drive industry growth in the foreseeable future. Organised retail will help accelerate India’s economic growth and job creation. During the year, developments on the policy front provided an opportunity for global retailers to make investments and participate in the sector’s growth story.

KG-D6 Arbitration and other legal issues
RIL has commenced an arbitration against the Government’s decision to disallow recovery of costs incurred by the Contractor in the development of facilities constructed for production of gas from the D1 and D3 fields in the block KG-D6. RIL approached the Supreme Court for appointment of a third arbitrator following the failure on the part of the arbitrators appointed by the Contractor and the Government to appoint a third arbitrator. Consequently, the third arbitrator has been appointed by the Supreme Court. Public Interest Litigations (PIL) were filed by Gurudas Dasgupta and an NGO called Common Cause before the Supreme Court. The PILs primarily seek quashing of the decisions of the Government to revise the gas price and action against the Contractor for failure to relinquish area and for hoarding gas. As both the PILs raised substantially the same claims, the Supreme Court tagged both the petitions to be heard together. These PIL are currently being heard by the Supreme Court.

PMT Arbitration
Arbitration Hearing took place in London from 19th November to 27th November 2013 and a number of issues (including Interpretation of Cost recovery provisions, interpretation of provision related to calculation of Investment Multiple and profit sharing, Powers and functions of Management Committee and method of determining the amount of royalty) were heard and award has been reserved. A final hearing has been fixed for 15th June to 3rd July 2015. Further RIL/BG’s SLP before the Supreme Court (challenging Delhi High Court’s order admitting GoI’s petition for setting aside a partial final award handed down by PMT arbitration tribunal) has been heard by the Supreme Court and the judgment has been reserved.

Outlook
A two trillion dollar economy catering to a billion-plus population, more than half of which is below the age of 30. Such a scenario, a rarity in the world’s demographic profile, represents the foundation for India’s retail sector growth. India’s organised retail is witnessing a new surge of optimism and is projected to touch a 20% share of the total retail market by 2020 vis-à-vis 8% now.

Reliance Market has established leadership in Wholesale Cash & Carry segment in the country with 32 operational stores and enjoys patronage of more than 1.2 million registered members. ‘Reliance Market’, has infused new life into business transactions of Kirana, HORECA, institutions, etc by empowering and boosting their entrepreneurial potential. At the same time, it has generated sustained social value by increasing employment opportunities for large population strata. This is encapsulated in its promise to customers – ‘Aapka Market, Aapka Fayda’. Reliance Market has been leveraging the synergies across the retail business portfolio to help bring the right merchandise on the shelves in each location. Reliance Market’s strong own brand portfolio has further helped to bring relevant offerings to its shelves. Such a scenario has led to a large assortment of core and complementary products, which further differentiates Reliance Market from competitors. Pricing is yet another distinctive feature of Reliance Market. Its leadership position is secured by key product ranges being available at the lowest wholesale prices. In the pricing process, Reliance Market has also practiced the concept of ladder pricing which allows small shop owners to save more by buying more of their requirements.

Value formats and others
Food and Grocery remains the largest category in the consumption basket and is estimated at around 60% of consumer spending. (Source: Deloitte – Indian Retail Market Opening More Doors, January 2013) Value Formats have been primarily focused on this key element of consumption basket and the format strength has been to offer a comprehensive range of fresh products. The business continued to consolidate its position as India’s largest grocery retailer during the year.

Growth plans
Format developments
Offerings in the portfolio were consistently re-evaluated and as a result some key developments were witnessed: a) In line with emerging scenarios, the business withdrew its offering of TimeOut in the books and music category. The books and music industry is undergoing consistent evolution catalysed by technology and the way consumers perceive these categories in a technologydriven era. Reliance Retail recognised the growing influence of electronic information media on this category. Therefore, Reliance Retail realigned its offerings in this segment and discontinued the books and music format. b) Another key development at Reliance Retail during the year was the discontinuation of the non-vegetarian food offering, ‘Delight’, echoing consumer sentiments.

Brands
During the year, Reliance Brands through its joint venture with Iconix USA, Iconix Lifestyle India, made available three well-known international brands viz; London Fog, Umbro and Cannon for discerning Indian consumers. The business added Quiksilver (www.quiksilver.in) to its e-commerce portfolio, supplementing the earlier launch of Stevemadden (www.stevemadden.in) Hamleys, the experiential toys retailing format, added 5 stores to its portfolio during the year. It is now the largest franchised operation of the London-based iconic retailer. Widening its store network of brands already in its portfolio, Reliance Brands opened the first stores for Dune and Stuart Weitzman during the year.

Jewellery
During the year, jewellery demand remained sluggish owing to weak macro environment, sticky inflation and poor consumer sentiment. Unfavourable regulatory landscape also led to volatility in gold prices. Regulatory changes severely curtailed gold imports, resulting in scarcity and spiralling cost of imported gold. The inevitable outcome was higher gold prices and weak consumer demand. Reliance Jewels was focused on consolidating operations of its portfolio of over 50 stores. The objective was to improve its performance against various operational parameters and build a robust growth platform. Several new product lines were introduced during the year. Relaxation of control on gold imports and reduction in import duty shall be the key growth catalysts in the coming period.

Reliance Retail is in a unique position to capitalise on the growing opportunity in India. Continued expansion is the way ahead. The roadmap is clear -- it will be achieved by growing in existing markets and foraying into unexplored markets. The objective is simple, ‘Elevating Lives and Rekindling Aspirations’, for all Indians. The business is poised to launch multi-channel shopping in the coming year. The potential of e-commerce combined with the network of physical store locations will offer tremendous choice and convenience at a great value to the consumer. Digital sector would be one of the growth verticals for the coming year. Expansion of Digital Express Mini format to newer geographies that represents potential for mobility devices would be a priority for the Company. To augment this growth, ResQ would expand its presence and enable

With this acquisition, RJIL will be the holder of the largest quantum of liberalised spectrum (spectrum in any band can be used for delivering any services deploying any technology). With the longest residual spectrum life, RJIL plans to use this 1800 MHz spectrum, in conjunction with its pan India 2,300 MHz spectrum to address the expected surge in demand for digital services as well as to enhance in-building coverage. RJIL plans to provide seamless 4G services using FDD-LTE on 1800 MHz and TDD-LTE on 2300 MHz through an integrated ecosystem. Reliance Jio Infocomm Pte. Limited, Singapore, a subsidiary of RJIL, was granted a Facility Based Operator (FBO) license in Singapore which will allow it to buy, operate and sell undersea and/or terrestrial fibre connectivity, set up its internet point of presence, offer internet transit and peering services as well as data and voice roaming services in Singapore. RJIL has adopted a partnership based model for telecom infrastructure for 4G wireless and fibre based high speed broadband services. In line with this strategic intent, RJIL and its wholly owned subsidiaries have finalised the following partnerships for infrastructure sharing: Agreement with Bharti to utilise a dedicated fibre pair on Bharti’s i2i submarine cable between India and Singapore. A construction, maintenance and supply contract for “Bay of Bengal Gateway” cable system to provide connectivity between South East Asia, South Asia and the Middle East among RJIL, Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) (Malaysia), Vodafone Group (UK), Omantel (Oman), Etisalaat (UAE) and Dialog Axiata (Sri Lanka) Agreements with Reliance Communications and its affiliates for sharing of their inter-city fibre network, intra-city fibre network, and tower infrastructure Agreement with Bharti Infratel to share their tower infrastructure Agreement with Viom Networks to share their tower infrastructure

RELIANCE JIO INFOCOMM Operating environment
From less than 5 million mobile users in 2001, India has grown to more than 893 million mobile users as of January 2014 (Source: TRAI) achieving more than 72% teledensity. However, the growth in broadband connections has not been commensurate with the enormous growth of India’s telecommunication industry. India has only around 14.5 million broadband (Source: TRAI) connections, excluding internet access by wireless phone subscribers, which is very low compared to other European and Asian countries.

Spectrum acquisition and infrastructure tie ups
RIL’s subsidiary, Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited(RJIL) is the only private player with Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) spectrum in all the 22 telecom circles of India, plans to provide reliable fast internet connectivity through the 20 MHz, contiguous, pan-India BWA spectrum. In addition, in the recently concluded spectrum auctions, RJIL successfully acquired 1800 MHz spectrum across 14 key circles to strengthen in-building coverage in LTE. In addition to connectivity, RJIL also plans to enable end-toend solutions that address the entire value chain across various digital services in key domains of national interest such as, education, healthcare, security, financial services, government-citizen interfaces and entertainment. In October 2013, RJIL received Unified License for all 22 service areas across India and became the first telecom operator in the country to get pan India Unified License. The license allows RJIL to offer all telecom services including voice telephony under a single license. RJIL has migrated its existing ISP license along with BWA spectrum to the Unified License to provide all services allowedunder the license. RJIL was allotted Mobile Switching Centre Code (MSC), Mobile Country Code (MCC) and Mobile Network Code (MNC) for mobile access services across all 22 circles by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) providing it with about 22 million mobile phone numbers across India. In line with the Government’s policy decision of delinking spectrum allocation from the licenses and offering access spectrum based on auction process, the GoI has been

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued)
RELIANCE HARYANA SEZ LTD
Reliance Haryana SEZ Ltd (RHSL), is a JV between RIL’s wholly owned subsidiary, Reliance Ventures Limited (RVL), and Government of Haryana through Haryana State Industrial & Investment corporation Ltd (HSIIDC) for developing SEZs / Model Economic Township project and other infrastructure facilities in Haryana. Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services Limited (IL&FS) became a strategic partner in the MET project in January 2011. In view of the economic scenario the development of SEZs became unviable and in January 2012, RHSL offered to return 1383.68 acres of land acquired from HSIIDC for setting up SEZs. HSIIDC is in the process of taking back said land from RHSL and exit the JV. RHSL has commenced development of the phase I of the Model Economic Township and units of Panasonic and Denso are already operational. Land consolidation is in the process and it is expected that over the next one year the Company will be applying for the development of approximately 1000 acres of land. RHSL has engaged itself in various CSR activities in the field of health care by providing mobile health services to 18 villages, free eye and dental camps, women empowerment and training, technical education and skills development and creation of village infrastructure in the project area. undergoes continuous improvements to allow RIL management to optimise its management of risk exposures while taking advantage of business opportunities.

RIL’s View on Risk
Risk Appetite
RIL’s risk appetite is linked to its strategic approach and is based on the stance it has taken across five areas: Strategic: RIL manages strategic risk in the pursuit of profitable growth in both mature and emerging markets. Given the volatile markets and economic climate in which it operates, the adaptability of its people, its service offering and its infrastructure are key Operations: To strive to minimize all people and safety risks and take a balanced approach to other operations risks, taking into account the risk and reward profile of key business decisions Financial: To maintain a prudent financing strategy, even when undertaking major investment and therefore taking controlled risks in this area Reporting: RIL believes that accurate and reliable information provides a competitive advantage and is key to effective management of its business. It therefore accepts minimal risk in relation to reporting risks Compliance: To comply with laws and regulation is fundamental to maintaining its license to operate in the various industries that it operates in

ENTERPRISE RISK MANAGEMENT
RIL actively stimulates entrepreneurship throughout the organisation and encourage its people to identify and seize opportunities. The current economic environment in combination with significant growth ambitions of the Reliance Group carries with it an evolving set of risks. RIL recognises that these risks need to be managed to protect its customers, employees, shareholders and other stakeholders to achieve its business objectives and enable sustainable growth. Risk and opportunity management is therefore a key element of the overall RIL strategy. This section provides an overview of the key strategic risks, the RIL risk & control framework, and its approach to risk management.

Risk Factors
RIL’s focus is on those risks that threaten the achievement of business objectives of the Group over the short to medium term. An overview of these risks is provided hereafter, including the actions taken to mitigate these risks and any related opportunities:

Strategic Risks
Prices and Markets
RIL’s financial performance is subject to the fluctuating prices of crude oil & gas and downstream petroleum products. Prices of oil & gas products are affected by supply and demand, both globally and regionally. Factors that influence the supply and demand include operational issues, natural disasters, political instability, economic conditions etc. For example lower prices will mean lower revenues for RIL’s upstream production and as a result the long term projects may become less profitable. Additionally, this may also have the impact on reserves booking. Prolonged unfavourable conditions could also result in, cancellation of projects

Creating Value through Risk Management
RIL operates in diverse industries and global markets and therefore requires a balanced approach to risk management. An integrated system of risk management and internal controls framework which is tailored to the specific RIL segments and businesses is deployed taking into account various factors such as the size and nature of the inherent risks and the regulatory environment of the individual business segment or operating company. This framework

or impairment of assets. Since RIL operates an integrated hydrocarbon business some of these risks can be offset by gains in other parts of the Group. In addition, RIL proactively hedges these exposures.

Operations Risks
Changing Technology and Obsolescence Risk
The changing technologies and the natural ageing of existing facilities pose the risk of production plants becoming obsolete and uneconomic. Aged plants are prone to unplanned shutdowns and increased maintenance and operating costs. Deployment of new technologies and on-going maintenance processes are key to enhancing the reliability of operations and reduction in operating costs while improving the safety of operating conditions while extending the useful life of assets.

Competitive Forces
While RIL seeks to compete on the basis of product differentiation, it operates in commodity-type markets. It is therefore important to manage its costs to ensure it has an edge in pricing over its competitors. Surplus refining capacity in India, augmentation of refining capacities by PSUs and the additions of new refining capacity in Asia, notably in China and the Middle East will increase competition in the region potentially impacting GRM in its Refining and Marketing business. As a risk mitigating strategy, RIL continues to diversify its product portfolio and also develop new export markets. It is also investing in projects to strengthen cost competitiveness.

Evolving HSSE risks
The RIL Group is exposed to a wide spectrum of health, safety, security and environmental risks (HSSE), given the diversity and complexity of the industries RIL operates in. The exploration and production of oil & gas, transport of the hydrocarbons and their further refining and processing is regulated by various HSSE related regulations across the geographies where RIL operates. A major HSSE incident, such as fire, oil spill, security breach can result in loss of life, environmental degradation and overall disruption in business activities. RIL follows an HSE Policy that “Safety of persons overrides all production targets”, which incentivises all employees to strive for excellence in safety management for the benefit of its employees, customers and the communities in which they live. RIL has set itself the goal of ‘zero injuries and accidents‘. The Group conducts HSSE audits to get assurance on HSSE managements frameworks protocols and regulatory compliances.

Brand and Reputational risks
RIL is one of the leading brands in the country, hence its brand and reputation is an important asset. The Group has defined the Code of Conduct and Operating Model that govern how all employees in RIL and its Group companies operate. Compliance with these codes of conduct, organisational policies and other regulatory compliance and governance requirements are key to protect Reliance’s reputation.

Political instability, acts of terrorism, government policies
Social or civil unrest, within India or internationally can have an impact on the Group’s operations. Potential developments that may impact its business operations include government pricing policy of petroleum products, piracy on high seas, any changes to Indo-US economic policy, acts of terrorism or civil unrest that may have an impact on safe operation of its facilities and transportation of its products. Political unrest and tensions in the Middle East, North Africa can cause short term fluctuations in crude oil prices and crude availability. To mitigate the risks resulting from non-availability of crude and feedstocks, the Company has a diversified crude sourcing strategy from multiple geographies (Asia, Middle East, West Africa, Latin / South America and North Africa) under both short term and long term arrangements.

Financial Risks
Treasury Risks
Treasury risks include, amongst others, exposure to movements in interest rates and foreign exchange rates. The Group is exposed to fluctuating dollar and euro prices. While a majority of the Company’s purchases and sales are denominated in US dollars, the Company is exposed to currency risk where the realisation of sales proceeds is in local currencies. The Group seeks to maintain a financial framework to ensure that it is able to maintain an appropriate level of liquidity and financial capacity. This framework constrains the level of capital at risk for the purposes of position taken in financial instruments. RIL uses debt instruments like commercial paper and bonds to raise capital. The main Treasury risks include interest rate risks and foreign exchange risk.

Interest Rate Risks
RIL borrows funds in the domestic and international markets to meet long-term and short-term funding requirements. It

80

Reliance Industries Limited Annual Report 2013-14

Growth is Life...

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued) is subject to risks arising from interest rate fluctuations both LIBOR and Rupee based interest rates since majority of RIL’s borrowing are floating rate debt.

Compliance Risks
The evolution of the regulatory environment across the globe has resulted into increased regulatory scrutiny that raises minimum standards required at Reliance. This signifies the alignment of corporate performance objectives, whilst ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements. RIL recognises that regulatory requirements can be both a threat and a source of competitive advantage and therefore it will: Strive to understand the changing regulatory standards so as to strengthen its decision making processes and integrate these in its business strategy of each of the industries in which it operates Drive business performance through the convergence of risk, compliance processes and control mechanisms to ensure continued operational efficiency and effectiveness Exploit significant opportunities arising out of changing regulatory landscape to realign business processes and strategies

Foreign Exchange Risks
RIL has majority of operations in the markets which are priced in directly or indirectly in US dollars. As a result the functional currency for most of the RIL Businesses is dollar with a reporting currency in INR. The major currency to which RIL is exposed is US Dollar. Consequently RIL is exposed to varying levels of foreign exchange risk when it enters into transactions which are not denominated in INR, when foreign currency monetary assets and liabilities are translated at the reporting date and as a result of holding net investment in operations which are non-INR.

Commodity Related Risks
Commodity risk management is an important component of RIL’s supply and distribution function. The Company is exposed to risks arising from: Timing risk resulting from mismatch between pricing in of crude and feedstocks and pricing out of petroleum products Absence of liquidity in the market and ability to hedge known exposures Basis risk resulting from differences between the pricing basis for the physical purchases / sales and the pricing basis of the underlying hedging instruments used to hedge the financial exposures created from the physical trades The Company has put in place Treasury and Commodity risk management policies which provide the framework for decision making with respect to currency exposures and commodity trading positions.

How RIL Manages Risk
Reliance’s Board of Directors is responsible for the direction and oversight of the Group, its governance principles as well as the establishment of a system of internal control to mitigate material business risks. The Reliance Executive Committee is responsible for the design and operation of the Reliance System of Internal Control which includes Risk Management and Internal Control frameworks and for reviewing its effectiveness. The System of Internal Control is designed to manage the risks that may prevent RIL from achieving its business objectives and to provide reasonable assurance that all material misstatements, frauds or violations of laws and regulations will be prevented. The RIL system of internal control which includes: a) Governance Structures and Policies Establishing and communicating a common vision, mission, values and strategies by top management (strategy setting) Establishing appropriate performance management systems and processes to drive the achievement of Group objectives (performance management) Establishing expected and acceptable behaviours while pursuing the achievement of business objectives through a code of conduct (tone from the top)

Reporting Risks
Estimation of provisions and reserves
The estimation of proved oil & gas reserves involves subjective judgements and determinations based on available geological, technical, contractual and economic information. These estimates may change depending on availability of new information from production and drilling activities, or changes in economic factors like change in pricing of crude oil, projection of foreign exchange rates, natural decline in the field and unexpected geological complexity etc. The published provisions and reserves may also be subject to correction due to errors in application of published rules and change in guidance. Any downward adjustment would indicate lower production volumes in the upstream business.

Dual Ownership for Risk Management – Business segments have primary accountability for business risks but Corporate Functions (Finance, HR, IT) operate and support Business segments in ensuring an effective control framework. The Business and Functional CEOs are the key owners of the control framework for their respective Business or Function. A “Three-Not-Out” risk mitigation model is applied in each high exposure area with multiple checks (initiate, validate, approve) and hardware redundancy for enhanced process safety. In-line and off-line audits of significant risk areas and controls deployed through systems, processes and other operational activities. These assurance activities are designed to provide reasonable but not absolute assurance against material misstatement or loss. Where a significant risk materialises into a significant business incident, these are to be managed through the Groups Business Continuity, Emergency Response and Crisis Management Processes. These elements increasingly provide the “foundations” of the Reliance Risk Management and Internal Control Frameworks.

Governance Structures and Policies
The setting of clear and effective business objectives for the Group is a key aspect of the system of internal control. RIL’s Group strategic framework sets out its Group strategy, financial framework and how it manages risk. RIL has clearly defined its vision, mission and core values. Its Group strategy focuses on safety and centres on playing to its competitive strengths. Senior leadership plays a critical role in ensuring conformance with RIL’s stated business principles and core values.

RIL’s Risk Management Approach
1) System & Process embedded 2) Dual ownership

Risk Management and Internal Control
RIL has introduced several improvements to Integrated Enterprise Risk Management, Internal Controls Management and Assurance Frameworks and processes to drive a common integrated view of risks, optimal risk mitigation responses and efficient management of internal control and internal audit activities. This integration is enabled by all three being fully aligned across Group wide Risk Management, Internal Control and Internal Audit methodologies and processes supported by a common SAP GRC platform. The RIL Group has adopted the following key risk mitigation and internal control design principles and strategies: Risk management and Internal Control frameworks are designed and implemented to manage rather than completely eliminate the risk of failure to achieve business objectives Maximising the Embedding of Controls in systems and business process designs (configured automated checks and balances, configured delegations, as well as

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (Continued) and Senior Management in the various Businesses and Functions that the system of internal control deployed is appropriately designed to manage the key business risks and is operating effectively. Governance, Risk Management, Internal Controls and Internal Audit are aligned at Group level to enable full alignment and integration of integrated methodologies, processes and systems. The Internal Audit and Risk Management functions report directly to the Chairman and Managing Director with direct access to the Chairman of the Audit Committee. The role of Internal Audit, its mission and goals, are set out in the Company’s Internal Audit Charter, which has been approved by the Audit Committee and Executive Committee. RIL believes in pushing boundaries to achieve business innovation. Innovation can mean elevation in the level of technology being used, greater diversity or resilience in the business model being pursued or application of higher intelligence and deeper insight in the processes being followed in resource utilisation. RIL has shaped an organisational culture that fosters innovation at every single step. The drive for innovation is led by the Reliance Innovation Council comprising Nobel laureates, global strategists and iconic thought leaders. The Council meets annually to give direction to RIL’s innovation agenda. The Reliance Innovation Leadership Centre (RIL-C) manages the innovation ecosystem with the aim of making innovation, a way of life at RIL. The ecosystem approach defines innovation in the realm of people, processes, systems, technology, new businesses and structures. RIL-C identifies innovation opportunities across the organisation and designs, develops and deploys innovation programmes. For example, the ‘Beyonders’ programme aims at grooming innovation leaders by giving potential leaders an opportunity to innovate, as well as training on systematic methods of innovation. The Leading Expert Access Programme (LEAP) ‘democratises inspiration’ by providing a platform for interaction with luminaries and accomplished leaders from diverse areas. Powered by creative energies of thousands of its people, RIL will surely succeed in creating new exponential value, with the ultimate aim of reinventing the way people live their lives. Research & Technology and Innovation are two key focus areas to enhance RIL’s value creation, identifying new platforms for its sustainable growth. ’Reliance Technology Group’ (RTG), RIL’s centre for research and technology activities, focuses on (i) new products, processes and catalyst development to support existing business, and create breakthrough technologies for new businesses, and (ii) advanced troubleshooting, support to capital projects, and profit and reliability improvements in manufacturing plants. To accelerate research efforts at RIL, a new Research Centre has been recently commissioned at the Reliance Corporate Park (RCP) in Navi Mumbai. The facility will be the central hub of research and new technologies. It is a world-class facility providing state-of-the-art equipment for hundreds of RIL’s scientists and engineers. In R&D, RIL has broken new ground to develop game-changing products and technologies to add value to existing businesses, and create new business opportunities. In Refining, RTG continues to pursue research in coking, hydro processing, fluidised catalytic cracking (FCC), crude

Board and Business Oversight Mechanisms (Business Risk and Assurance Committees)
During 2013, Business Risk and Assurance Committees (BRACs) were established to provide the necessary formal structures to implement the Group’s Risk Management policies and to facilitate the risk management process for the respective Businesses and Functions. The BRACs provide a platform to: Integrate multidisciplinary organisational risks views on the key

Prioritise the most relevant risks to the Business or Function Align risk management, internal control and assurance activities across the Three Lines of Defence: Business and Functions, Controlling and Compliance Functions and Internal Audit The BRAC for each Business or Function integrates the senior leadership representation of the business, Risk management and Internal Audit Functions around a common agenda covering governance, risk management and internal audit matters. The Committee meet on quarterly basis to review and assess the effectiveness of the respective risk management and internal control frameworks. BRACs provide an integrated view of risk to the Audit Committee and Executive Committee on a quarterly basis.

INNOVATION, RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Innovation is not only important for organisational sustainability, but also vital for long-term value creation. Innovation can happen as one all-encompassing stroke or in small incremental steps, both of which can take the business to the next level.

RIL aims to make its products more safe and environment friendly. 1. List three products or services whose design has incorporated social or environmental concerns, risks and/or opportunities It is RIL’s constant endeavour to make products that have a positive impact on the environment and cater to consumer needs. Some such products created during FY 2013-14 are listed below: a) PP non-woven fabric This is utilised as a crop cover for protection against extreme cold weather. It prevents the crop leaves from freezing and allows sunlight to pass, thus resulting in normal photosynthesis. The cover also acts as a protection from pests and insects. b)

Crop protected from frost

Double Wall Corrugated Polyethylene Pipes This is utilised in sewage systems for conveyance of municipal sewage and wastewater. The traditional pipes, generally used in the sewage system, are made of concrete and possess major risks. These risks include breaks and leaks due to its brittle nature, corrosion and increased number of joints. It results in groundwater contamination, and in some cases contamination of potable water. DWC PE pipes have a number of technical advantages

Business Responsibility Report (Continued) over traditional piping systems. These pipes are stronger and hence reduce occurrence of leakages. c) PVC-based food grain packaging PVC food grain storage structures are airtight (hermetic) and unsupported rectangular structures made of lightweight UV-resistant PVC sheets. Due to excellent gas tightness of the structure, it can maintain low oxygen and high carbon dioxide level within the packaging. This ensures zero survival of insects, which in turn, protects food grains. 2. Procedures in place for sustainable sourcing (including transportation) and percentage of inputs sourced sustainably The Company’s motto is to establish long term relationship with its vendors and include them in its growth story. In addition to techno-commercial aspects, RIL’s procedures with regard to finalising vendors emphasises on environmental practices, existing certifications, safe working conditions, prevention of child labour and general housekeeping. RIL engages with its vendors periodically and also offers technical assistance whenever required. The selection procedure of RIL’s transport vendors (Trucks and Containers) involves scrutiny at various levels like young vehicle/ container fleet, presence of mandatory inspections and safe driving procedures. Further, the Company urges its large group of transport vendors to focus on load and route optimisation to ensure fuel efficiency and reduce the environmental impact due to transportation. In order to ensure a positive impact of sourcing of raw materials and other resources as well as product distribution, RIL supports, encourages and develops local vendors. E.g., the Company developed a local vendor for the supply of a critical chemical. Various contracts have been entered with local villagers around RIL’s plants in vehicle hiring, material handling, housekeeping, waste handling and horticulture. These contracts have led to entrepreneurship development around the manufacturing sites and have created employment for the populace. Through financial assistance and encouragement, RIL supports many small suppliers, predominantly civil contractors and transport suppliers. Some of these partners have been serving to RIL for the past two generations. 4. Mechanism to recycle products and waste and the percentage of recycling of products and waste (separately as 10%) RIL has taken various initiatives towards waste management and continuously monitors it with a view to ensure reduction in waste generation. RIL has taken various measures such as converting waste to organic manure and bio gas generation. RIL ensures responsible disposal of waste generated by partnering with various agencies to encourage end-oflife recycling and reuse. At Hoshiarpur and Barabanki recycled polyester fibre is being produced through post-consumer PET bottle recycling.

PTA product bulk dispatch at Hazira
At RIL’s Hazira operations, bulk dispatching of PTA product has been implemented. Dispatch levels have increased to 70-75% of PTA. The higher dispatch volume in the tanks (32MT/truck when compared to jumbo bags - 16.5MT/truck) has resulted in emission reduction due to decreased number of trips.

Green Polymer Packaging Bags
Green polymer (fully recyclable) packaging is used in the packaging of polyester and polymer products. A weight reduction of 3.5%-12% was achieved without compromising on mechanical properties of packaging materials. The process has lowered the number of trucks required for transportation of the product thereby reducing fuel consumption and hence emissions. 3. Steps taken to procure goods and services from local and small producers, including communities and capability building activities undertaken for local and small vendors

9.4 % Increase in recycled material utilisation
The industrial waste generated at Naroda plant is converted into useful ‘bio-manure’ by the vermicomposting method, thereby reducing the load of waste disposal on the environment. The Jamnagar refinery has reduced its load on the environment by tapping and desalinating sea water instead of using fresh water resources. The waste water generated is treated and used for green belt development thereby ensuring zero effluent discharge.

Recycling of used PET blend fabrics by bio route
Polyester is not easily amenable to microbial attack and hence polyester fabric waste poses a huge disposal problem. Separation of polyester from its blends and dye will aid in recycling of the polyester. There are some chemical recycling processes including hydrolysis, methanolysis and glycolysis that are being adopted to digest the polyester portion of the blends. Work is underway by RIL’s R&D group on exploring the possibility of recycling used PET via a biological route in an environmentally friendly manner using enzymes from microbes.

In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

Independent Auditors’ Report
TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF RELIANCE INDUSTRIES LIMITED REPORT ON THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 1. We have audited the accompanying consolidated financial statements of RELIANCE INDUSTRIES LIMITED (the Company), its subsidiaries and jointly controlled entities (collectively referred to as “the Group”), which comprise the Consolidated Balance Sheet as at March 31, 2014, the Consolidated Statement of Profit and Loss and the Consolidated Cash Flow Statement for the year then ended and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information. MANAGEMENT’S RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 2. Management is responsible for the preparation of these consolidated financial statements that give a true and fair view of the consolidated financial position, consolidated financial performance and consolidated cash flows of the Group in accordance with the Accounting Standards notified under the Companies Act, 1956 (the Act) (which continue to be applicable in respect of Section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013 in terms of General Circular 15/2013 dated 13th September, 2013 of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs). This responsibility includes the design, implementation and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and presentation of the consolidated financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. AUDITORS’ RESPONSIBILITY 3. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Those Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free from material misstatement. 4. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and the disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Group’s preparation and presentation of the consolidated financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of the accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by the Management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. OPINION 5. In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us and based on the consideration of the reports of the other auditors on the financial statements / consolidated financial statements of the subsidiaries and associates as noted below, the consolidated financial statements give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India: (a) in the case of the Consolidated Balance Sheet, of the state of affairs of the Group as at March 31, 2014; (b) in the case of the Consolidated Statement of Profit and Loss, of the profit of the Group for the year ended on that date and (c) in the case of the Consolidated Cash Flow Statement, of the cash flows of the Group for the year ended on that date. OTHER MATTERS 6. Financial statements / consolidated financial statements of certain subsidiaries which reflect total assets (net) of ` 81,533 crore as at March 31, 2014, total revenue (net) of ` 52,452 crore and net cash flows amounting to ` 67 crore for the year then ended, have been audited by one or jointly by two of us or one of us with other and financial statements of an associate in which the share of profit of the Group is ` 11 crore have been audited by one of us. 7. We did not audit the financial statements / consolidated financial statements of certain subsidiaries whose financial statements / consolidated financial statements reflect total assets (net) of ` 48,602 crore as at March 31, 2014/ December 31, 2013, total revenues (net) of ` 19,065 crore and net cash flows amounting to ` 384 Crore for the year ended on that date and financial statements of an associate in which the share of profit of the Group is ` 1 crore. These financial statements / consolidated financial statements have been audited by other auditors whose reports have been furnished to us and our opinion is based solely on the reports of the other auditors. 8. We have relied on the unaudited financial statements of certain associates wherein the Group’s share of profit aggregate ` 15 crore. These unaudited financial statements as approved by the respective Boards of Directors of these companies have been furnished to us by the Management and our report insofar as it relates to the amounts included in respect of associates is based solely on such approved unaudited financial statements.

Significant Accounting Policies On Consolidated Accounts
A. PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION
The consolidated financial statements relate to Reliance Industries Limited (‘the Company’) and its subsidiary companies, associates and joint ventures. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the following basis: a) The financial statements of the Company and its subsidiary companies are combined on a line-by-line basis by adding together the book values of like items of assets, liabilities, income and expenses, after fully eliminating intra-group balances and intra-group transactions in accordance with Accounting Standard (AS) 21 - “Consolidated Financial Statements” Interest in Joint Ventures have been accounted by using the proportionate consolidation method as per Accounting Standard (AS) 27 - “Financial Reporting of Interest in Joint Ventures”. In case of foreign subsidiaries, being non-integral foreign operations, revenue items are consolidated at the average rate prevailing during the year. All assets and liabilities are converted at rates prevailing at the end of the year. Any exchange difference arising on consolidation is recognised in the exchange fluctuation reserve. The difference between the cost of investment in the subsidiaries, over the net assets at the time of acquisition of shares in the subsidiaries is recognised in the financial statements as Goodwill or Capital Reserve, as the case may be. The difference between the proceeds from disposal of investment in subsidiaries and the carrying amount of its assets less liabilities as of the date of disposal is recognised in the consolidated Statement of Profit and Loss being the profit or loss on disposal of investment in subsidiary. Minority Interest’s share of net profit of consolidated subsidiaries for the year is identified and adjusted against the income of the group in order to arrive at the net income attributable to shareholders of the Company. Minority Interest’s share of net assets of consolidated subsidiaries is identified and presented in the consolidated balance sheet separate from liabilities and the equity of the Company’s shareholders. Investment in Associate Companies has been accounted under the equity method as per Accounting Standard (AS) 23 - “Accounting for Investments in Associates in Consolidated Financial Statements”. The Company accounts for its share in change in net assets of the associates, post acquisition, after eliminating unrealised profits and losses resulting from transactions between the Company and its associates to the extent of its share, through its Statement of Profit and Loss to the extent such change is attributable to the associates’ Profit or Loss through its reserves for the balance, based on available information. The difference between the cost of investment in the associates and the share of net assets at the time of acquisition of shares in the associates is identified in the financial statements as Goodwill or Capital Reserve as the case may be. As far as possible, the consolidated financial statements are prepared using uniform accounting policies for like transactions and other events in similar circumstances and are presented in the same manner as the Company’s separate financial statements.

2. DIVIDEND
2.1 What are the modes by which the dividend is paid?
Dividend is paid under four modes viz: National Electronic Clearing Services (NECS) National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT) Direct Credit to shareholders’ account by bank Physical dispatch of Dividend Warrant

2.2 What is payment of dividend through NECS Facility and how does it operate?
NECS facility is a centralised version of ECS facility. The NECS system takes advantage of the centralised accounting system in banks. Accordingly, the account of a bank that is submitting or receiving payment instructions is debited or credited centrally at Mumbai. The branches participating in NECS can, however, be located anywhere across the length and breadth of the country.

COMPANY’S RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE SHAREHOLDERS / INVESTORS
Deal with Registered Intermediaries
Investors should transact through a registered intermediary who is subject to regulatory discipline of SEBI, as it will be responsible for its activities, and in case the intermediary does not act professionally, investors may take up the matter with SEBI/Stock Exchanges.

2.3 What are the benefits of NECS (payment through electronic facilities)?
Some of the major benefits are : Investor need not make frequent visits to his bank for depositing the physical paper instruments. Prompt credit is given to the bank account of the investor through electronic clearing. Fraudulent encashment of warrants is avoided. Exposure to delays / loss in postal service are avoided. Issue of duplicate warrants is avoided as there can be no loss in transit of warrants.

Obtain documents relating to purchase and sale of securities
A valid Contract Note/Confirmation Memo should be obtained from the broker/sub-broker, within 24 hours of execution of purchase or sale of securities and it should

2.4 How to avail of NECS Facility?
Investors holding shares in physical form may send their NECS Mandate Form, duly filled in, to the Company’s R&TA. The Form may be downloaded from the Company’s website www.ril.com under the section “Investor Relations”. However, if shares are held in dematerialised form, NECS mandate has to be sent to the concerned DP directly, in the format prescribed by the DP. Investors must note that NECS essentially operates on the new and unique bank account number, allotted by banks post implementation of Core Banking Solutions (CBS) for centralized processing of inward instructions and efficiency in handling bulk transactions. In this regard, shareholders are requested to furnish the new bank account number allotted by the banks post implementation of CBS, along with a copy of cheque pertaining to the concerned account: to the R&TA of the Company in case the shareholders hold shares in physical form; and to the concerned DP in case the shareholders hold shares in demat form.

2.8 What should a shareholder do in case of nonreceipt of dividend?
Shareholders may write to the Company’s R&TA, furnishing the particulars of the dividend not received, and quoting the folio number /DPID and Client ID particulars (in case of dematerialised shares). On expiry of the validity period, if the dividend warrant is still shown as unpaid in the records of the Company, duplicate warrant will be issued. The R&TA would request the concerned shareholder to execute an indemnity before issuing the duplicate warrant. No duplicate warrants will be issued against those shares wherein a ‘stop transfer indicator’ has been instituted either by virtue of a complaint or by law, unless the procedure for releasing the same has been completed.

2.9 Why do the shareholders have to wait till the expiry of the validity period of the original warrant for issue of duplicate warrant?
Since the dividend warrants are payable at par at several centres across the country, banks do not accept ‘stop payment’ instructions. Hence, shareholders have to wait till the expiry of the validity of the original warrant for issue of duplicate warrant. Validity of Dividend warrant is three months from the date of issue of the warrant.

2.5 Can investors opt out of NECS Facility?
Investors have a right to opt out from this mode of payment by giving an advance notice of four weeks, prior to payment of dividend, either to the Company’s R&TA or to the concerned DP, as the case may be.

2.10 Why shares should be transferred before the Book Closure/ Record Date fixed for dividend payment?
The dividend on shares lying in the clearing account of the brokers cannot be made available to the members directly by the Company. In case an investor has bought any shares, he must ensure that the shares are transferred to his demat account before the book closure / record date.

2.6 What is payment of dividend through NEFT Facility and how does it operate?
NEFT is a nation-wide payment system facilitating electronic transfer of funds from one account to another. Dividend payment through NEFT denotes payment of dividend electronically through RBI clearing to selected bank branches which have implemented Core Banking Solutions (CBS). This extends to all over the country, and is not necessarily restricted to the 91 designated centres where payment can be handled through ECS. To facilitate payment through NEFT, the shareholder is required to ensure that the bank branch where his/her account is operated, is under CBS and also records the particulars of the new bank account with the DP with whom the demat account is maintained.

2.11 What are the Statutory provisions governing unpaid dividend?
As per the Companies Act, 2013, dividend which remains unpaid or unclaimed for a period of seven years shall be transferred to the Investor Education and Protection Fund (IEPF). Further, all shares in respect of which unpaid or unclaimed dividend has been transferred to IEPF shall also be transferred by the Company in the name of IEPF. The shareholders whose amounts and shares have been transferred to IEPF, shall be entitled to get refund of the dividend and claim the transfer of shares from IEPF after complying with the prescribed procedure under the Companies Act, 2013.

2.7 What is payment of dividend through Direct Credit and how does it operate?
The Company will be appointing a bank as its Dividend banker for distribution of dividend. The said banker will carry out direct credit to those investors who are maintaining accounts with the said bank, provided the bank account details are registered with the DP for dematerialised shares and / or registered with the Company’s R&TA prior to the payment of dividend for shares held in physical form.

2.12 Where can the status of unclaimed dividend not transferred to IEPF account be verified?
The Company has uploaded the details of unpaid and unclaimed amounts lying with the Company as

...Hello everyone and welcome to Hadoop Fundamentals – What is Hadoop. My name is Warren Pettit. In this video we will explain what is Hadoop and what is Big Data. We will define some Hadoop-related open source projects and give some examples of Hadoop in action. Imagine this scenario: You have 1GB of data that you need to process. The data is stored in a relational database on your desktop computer and this desktop computer has no problem handling this load. Then your company starts growing very quickly, and that data grows to 10GB. And then 100GB. And you start to reach the limits of your current desktop computer. So you scale-up by investing in a larger computer, and you are then OK for a few more months. When your data grows to 10TB, and then 100TB, you are quickly approaching the limits of that computer. Moreover, you are now asked to feed your application with unstructured data coming from sources like Facebook, Twitter, RFID readers, sensors, and so on. Your management wants to derive information from both the relational data and the unstructured data and wants this information as soon as possible. What should you do? Hadoop may be the answer! What is Hadoop? Hadoop is an open source project of the Apache Foundation. It is a framework written in Java originally developed by Doug Cutting who named it after his son's toy elephant. Hadoop uses Google’s MapReduce and Google File System technologies as its foundation. It is optimized to handle massive quantities of data......

...Tj Turner Ms. Cooney E4/6th 29 March 2016 Attending College Some may say college is not for them, and others believe it is. College is indeed time consuming and technical, but it is also the start of the life of some people's dreams. A person could give endless reasons as to why they do not want to attend college, such as: it is too expensive, it is time consuming, or there are not always jobs in the field they got their major in. Others will argue that. A person should attend college because it gives better jobs, more opportunities, and easier connections in the work field when looking for a job. People with only a high school diploma do not make as much money as a person with something as simple as an associate's degree. “People with a college degree make around $1,100 a week. Someone with a high school diploma makes just $638” (GreatSchools Staff). An associate's degree is only two years of college. Some people only go for two years because that is all they need for the profession they want to proceed in. Although a person that attends college for more than two years obviously has a higher degree. The higher the degree you have, the more money you make. Some parents do not want to support their children beyond high school. “A lot of high school graduates have never worked, paid a bill, or learned anything about personal finance” (Slide, Casey). College will most definitely teach a person how to finance wisely. Not only does college help a person earn......

...Chapter 9 Random Numbers This chapter describes algorithms for the generation of pseudorandom numbers with both uniform and normal distributions. 9.1 Pseudorandom Numbers 0.814723686393179 Here is an interesting number: This is the first number produced by the Matlab random number generator with its default settings. Start up a fresh Matlab, set format long, type rand, and it’s the number you get. If all Matlab users, all around the world, all on different computers, keep getting this same number, is it really “random”? No, it isn’t. Computers are (in principle) deterministic machines and should not exhibit random behavior. If your computer doesn’t access some external device, like a gamma ray counter or a clock, then it must really be computing pseudorandom numbers. Our favorite definition was given in 1951 by Berkeley professor D. H. Lehmer, a pioneer in computing and, especially, computational number theory: A random sequence is a vague notion . . . in which each term is unpredictable to the uninitiated and whose digits pass a certain number of tests traditional with statisticians . . . 9.2 Uniform Distribution Lehmer also invented the multiplicative congruential algorithm, which is the basis for many of the random number generators in use today. Lehmer’s generators involve three integer parameters, a, c, and m, and an initial value, x0 , called the seed. A September 16, 2013 1 2 sequence of integers is defined by xk+1 = axk + c mod m.

...Why Cambridge Hospital Community Health Network embarked on the ABC study. 1. Change in macro environment 1) A series of government reform significantly reduce the revenue of hospital. Federal legislative and state legislators have cut the revenue of hospital get from Medicare and Medicaid gradually since 1995. Also, the proliferation of managed care and DRG reimbursement system to outpatient clinics have fixed the revenue of hospital regardless the type or time length of service that hospital provides to patients. 2) The wave of hospital integrations forms strong competitors, i.e. joint ventures with insurance companies or nonprofit or for profit chains that could share expensive diagnostic equipment or financial risks. 2. Network itself: Hospital economies are very often based on public funding and the primary objective of these organizations is much more to provide the acceptable level of care with predefined budget. While the hospital was required to make a 14 million reduction in expenditures in the next two fiscal years, which is 15% of the entire hospitals operating budget. Also, Cambridge Hospital Community Health Network is high cost provider, whose unit of service costs had been rising at a rate of 10% per year. The first step for managers of Network to reduce expenditure while maintain the quality of service is to understand the detailed cost information, however, the current cost system seems cannot fulfill this requirement. 3.

...Ivory: Illegal Selling Procedures and Methods Man’s relationship with elephants is beset by contradictions. On the one hand, they are regarded with awe and fascination; while on the other, whole populations are eradicated in pursuit of land or ivory (David 444). Even though elephants do have natural predators- the young are often killed by lions, hyenas, or crocodiles- by far their most dangerous enemy is humankind (David 444). As far back as classical antiquity, North African elephant populations were dwindling rapidly. They finally disappeared during the Dark or Middle Ages (“Saving the Elephant”). The Arab ivory trade, which started in the 17th century, precipitated a further rapid decline among elephant populations in both West and East Africa (“Saving the Elephant”). The colonial era accelerated the process by opening up previously inaccessible areas introducing modern technology, notably high-powered rifles; in Africa, the destruction of elephants reached a peak between 1830 and 1900 (“New Rules”). Today, continuing deforestation and the encroachment of roads, farms, and towns into former elephants habits threaten both African and Asian elephant by restricting their range, cutting off seasonal migration routes, and bringing them into more frequent conflict with people (“New Rules”). Perceptions of the main conservation issues involved have changed radically since the 1960s when the debate centered on local overpopulation of elephants in protected areas (David...

...1. Explain the challenge of producing accurate cost estimates when working in harsh geographical conditions. These conditions were a bit of challenge for this project. It would be hard to predict accurate cost estimates due to a number of factors in this project. Setting up in this area is particularly hard due to the fact that it was to be set up in a region that is close to the Pakistani border. They would have to set up security contracts, first of all to protect everyone involved in the project. The site was several hundred kilometers from the larger cities. They would have to set up living quarters and transportation. It probably made it even harder since the contractors do not know the area. The area is also remote so you have to account for getting the supplies to the location. I would assume there was a lot of activity based costing going on here. The real problem I see would be to plan for all these cost estimates. They would have to do some research on a project “like” this and see what costs were accrued in that project or they are going to be taking some educated guesses on how much this is all going to cost. Also the weather in this mountainous terrain will add more cost to the project. The challenge would have been hard for this project because of all the variables that the contracting team would have had to put up with.
