India maintains its quest for a larger percentage of the Vedanta oil block.

An important government lawyer declared on Wednesday that the Indian government would maintain its demand for a 10% increase in its portion of the profits from the Barmer oil and gas block owned by Indian giant Vedanta (VDAN.NS).

A dispute between Vedanta and the federal government for an extension of the production-sharing contract for the Barmer facility in Rajasthan is currently being heard by the Supreme Court.

In a brief court proceeding, Vedanta’s contention that the project would become unprofitable if the income share increased was refuted by the government, according to Additional Solicitor General of India Sanjay Jain.
