Initially, the Ministry had referred about six PSCs including Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) D6 contract for special audit by C&AG. However, seeing the huge stakes involved, the C&AG has now decided to audit 20 contracts including those of GSPC and ONGC.

Currently, the Petroleum Ministry has been getting the PSCs audited by reputed auditors.
