PM Narendra Modi urges oil suppliers to review payment terms to give rupee relief

Modi was speaking to oil ministers and chief executives of oil majors at a round table in New Delhi, a government statement said.

“He requested for review of payment terms so as to provide temporary relief to the local currency,” the statement quoted him as saying.

India, which imports more than 80 percent of its oil imports, has been under pressure as crude oil prices have surged and its rupee currency has lost value.

“Prime Minister Modi made a strong case for a partnership between the producers and consumers in the oil market as it exists in other markets,” the statement said.

Speaking at the conference, oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan said India is “facing severe headwinds from rising oil prices” which have risen by 50 per cent in dollar terms and 70 per cent in rupee term in last one year.
