    There were already reports that the government may exempt ONGC from paying fuel subsidy during the rest of the fiscal due to steep decline in global oil rates to around $48 a barrel.

    Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had recently recently said that the government was working on the subsidy sharing formula.

    For the remainder of the fiscal, another Rs 21,000-22,000 crore of under-recoveries are estimated which can easily be met by government subsidy from budget and sparing ONGC, they said.

    PTI reports recently said that sources in the oil ministry is of the view that unless sufficient funds are available for increased oil recovery and enhanced oil recovery schemes from the ageing oil fields, the country may notionally lose more than 70 million tonnes of indigenous crude oil production during next 10 years.

    This may increase the import bill by Rs 3,33,000 crore. However, if this crude is produced indigenously, it will cost only Rs 112,000 crore resulting in a substantial saving of Rs 2,21,000 crore.
