The operating profit has shown a very healthy growth. However, OPM has declind by 2% points. The decline in OPM is largely due to feedstock prices, crude oil, which have increased by over 30% in this period.

Reliance has reiterated its intention of focusing on new growth areas. It new initiative include power, telecom and infocom. It is also planning on consolidating the balace sheet of Reliance Petroleum (RPL) and Bombay Surburban Electricity Supply (BSES). This should further boost the bottomline of RIL.
