RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND THE STATE OF COMPANY'S AFFAIRS


The highlights of the Company's performance are as under:

Revenue from operations decreased by 15.1% to Rs. 3,40,814 crore ($ 54.5 billion).

Exports decreased by 17.1% to Rs. 2,28,651 crore ($ 36.6 billion).

PBDIT increased by 1.3% to Rs. 40,323 crore ($ 6.5 billion).

Profit before Tax increased by 5.9% to Rs. 29,468 crore ($ 4.7 billion).
Cash Profit increased by 3.4% to Rs. 31,832 crore ($ 5.1 billion).

Net Profit increased by 3.3% to Rs. 22,719 crore ($ 3.6 billion).

Gross Refining Margin was $ 8.6 / bbl for the year ended March 31, 2015.

The consolidated revenue from operations of the Company for year ended March 31, 2015
was down by 13% to Rs. 3,88,494 crore ($ 62.2 billion). The decline in turnover reflects a

sharp fall in crude oil prices during the second half of the year. Strong operating performance
from the refining business and stable petrochemicals business performance led to higher
operating profits. Consolidated operating profits before other income and depreciation
increased by 7.3% on a year on year basis from Rs. 34,799 crore to Rs. 37,364 crore. Profit
after Tax was higher by 4.8% at Rs. 23,566 crore as against Rs. 22,493 crore in the previous
year.
The financial year 201415 has been a very successful and important year for the Company.
The Company's refining business delivered record earnings in a year when the collapse of oil
prices unsettled the hydrocarbons market. During the year, RIL Jamnagar refineries processed
67.9 MMT of crude, achieving an average utilization rate of 110%. The Company was able to
capitalize on the market conditions through its operational excellence, higher efficiency and
well executed strategies around crude sourcing and product placement. The revenue from
Petrochemicals segment decreased reflecting lower product prices resulting from sharp
decline in crude and feedstock prices.

KGD6 field produced 1.96 million barrels of crude oil, 0.32 million barrels of condensate
and 158 BCF of natural gas in 201415, reflecting a growth of 12% in case of Condensate
and a reduction of 3% and 12% of Crude Oil and Natural Gas respectively on a year on year
basis. The decline in production was largely due to natural decline in fields coupled with
partial shutdown of MA field due to Hudhud cyclone.

The capital expenditure of Reliance on a consolidated basis for 201415 was Rs. 1,00,247
crore including exchange rate difference capitalization. The capital expenditure was
principally on account of ongoing expansion projects in petrochemicals and refining business
at Jamnagar, Dahej and Hazira, Broadband access and US Shale gas projects.
During the year, the Company commissioned its new PBR Plant at Hazira, Gujarat, with
capability to produce Nickel and Neodymium grade PBR. With the commissioning of this
facility, the Company's total PBR capacity is now at 115 KTPA. RIL also started its new 150
KTPA SBR plant during the year which is expected to stabilise in the coming months.
During the last quarter of 201415, RIL started phase1 PTA capacity of 1,150 KTPA and
650 KTPA of PET capacity at Dahej, Gujarat. Both these plants are expected to stabilise
operations in the coming months and will be advantageously positioned to reap the benefits
of integration. The new PET resin facility is one of the largest bottlegrade PET resin facility
at a single location globally.

The new PTA plant has been built with Invista technology and is highly energy efficient and
environment friendly. Indian market is currently deficit in PTA by over 1.5 MMTPA. The
startup of the new PTA plant at Dahej will take India closer to selfsufficiency in PTA.

The Company has made offerings of Senior Unsecured Notes priced under Rule
144A/Regulation S of the Securities Act, 1933 (USA) aggregating US $ 1.75 billion during
January and February 2015. These funds will be utilized for ongoing capital expenditure.
The Company is one of India's largest contributors to the national exchequer primarily by
way of payment of taxes and duties to various government agencies. During the year, a total
of Rs. 33,322 crore ($ 5.3 billion) was paid in the form of various taxes and duties.
The Company is featured in the Fortune Global 500 list of the world's largest corporations for
the eleventh consecutive year and was ranked 114th in terms of revenues and 155th in terms
of profit.

No material changes and commitments have occurred after the close of the year till the date
of this Report, which affect the financial position of the Company.

DIVIDEND
Your Directors have recommended a dividend of Rs. 10 (i.e. 100%) per equity share (last
year Rs. 9.50 per equity share) for the financial year ended March 31, 2015, amounting to Rs.
3,559 crore (inclusive of tax of Rs. 615 crore), one of the highest payout by any private sector
company in India. The dividend payout is subject to approval of members at the ensuing
Annual General Meeting.

The dividend will be paid to members whose names appear in the Register of Members as on
May 11, 2015 and in respect of shares held in dematerialised form, it will be paid to members
whose names are furnished by National Securities Depository Limited and Central
Depository Services (India) Limited, as beneficial owners as on that date.
The dividend payout for the year under review has been formulated in accordance with the
Company's policy to pay sustainable dividend linked to long term growth objectives of the
Company to be met by internal cash accruals.

Clause 49 of the Listing Agreement with the Stock Exchanges in India, is presented in a
separate section forming part of the Annual Report. The developments in business
operations / performance of major subsidiaries consolidated with RIL are as below:

Shale Gas Business


Reliance's shale gas business continued on its growth trajectory with revenues and EBIT
increasing 20.1% and 36.3% respectively, despite a challenging price environment. RIL's
share of net sales volume was at 168 BCFe, compared to 131 BCFe in 2013. EBITDA of $

~1.2 Bcfe/day, reflecting growth of 26% over the levels achieved in calendar year 2013. The

Reliance Retail business grew by 21.2% to reach revenue of Rs. 17,640 crore as against Rs.
14,556 crore registered in the previous financial year. It continued to grow profitably,

has increased from 597.6 MHz to 751.1MHz (including uplink and downlink), strengthening
its position as the largest holder of liberalized spectrum.

This combined spectrum footprint across frequency bands provides significant network
capacity and deep inbuilding coverage. RJIL plans to provide seamless 4G services using

Limited ("the Company"), which comprise the Balance Sheet as at March 31, 2015, the Profit
and Loss Statement, the Cash Flow Statement for the year then ended and a summary of
significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

MANAGEMENT'S RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE STANDALONE FINANCIAL


STATEMENTS
The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section 134(5) of
the Companies Act, 2013 ("the Act") with respect to the preparation of these standalone
financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial
performance and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles
generally accepted in India including the Accounting Standards specified under Section 133
of the Act, read with Rule 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014. This responsibility
also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions
of the Act for safeguarding the assets of the Company and for preventing and detecting frauds
and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accounting policies; making
judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design, implementation and
maintenance of adequate internal financial controls, that were operating effectively for
ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation
and presentation of the financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from
material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

AUDITORS' RESPONSIBILITY
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these standalone financial statements based on
our audit. We have taken into account the provisions of the Act, the accounting and auditing
standards and matters which are required to be included in the audit report under the
provisions of the Act and the Rules made there under.
We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing specified under Section
143(10) of the Act. Those Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and

plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial
statements are free from material misstatements.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's
judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial
statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor
