    G- ye…ye..yeah! yes yes yes!
    R- huh?
    G- yes yes yes!!
    R- But our point of view is there that.. uh
    G- absolutely absolutely…. In detail and all this…. But I think this…uh chaltani (unclear) has also jumped into action…. Uh… and were trying to tell people …uh… that there is some response that he has got… uh.. three para C 316 , 319 blah blah something something
    R- We’ve given a response to that
    G- ok oh…uh… the next step also?
    R- yeah
    R- who is writing the story
    G- uh….the initial part I have already done…. But uhhh…
    R- including the 314 and 316 and all that?
    G- ah no… this is about the 3….uh… 3 issues requiring government approval (two electronic beeps)
    R- hmmm..
    G- and..uhhh…that nothing can be done without a government approval and how this in line with what the fertilizer academy has said earlier
    R- ah huh
    G- and how that..uh.. little …uh… (inaudible) on irrigation and… these things are controlled by the mother agreement….ehhh.. which is approved by the government.
    R- uh huh..
    G- (inaudible utterances) so that.. (inaudible utterances)
    R- so these people…uh..but these people..uh.. will they change it?
    G- uh …no they will not change it.. tha…uh..they…the…uh… what they are supposed to do is to add the bit about what this fellow is saying…uh (Name inaudible) is saying
    R- umm…. But we’ve also responded to that.
    G- yeah!! Umm… that also I’ll tell them to add so…buh…vu huh… what is the response to this 316 and uh 319 that they should take note of.
    R- para 311
    G- yeah
    R- that the contract of such nature is subject to the approval of government in view of any LP and TSC and such related government policies.
    G- huh hun
    R- that is the one line…
    G- huh un
    R- it’s a long clause
    G- huh un
    R- and uh.. para 316
    G- huh
    R- (inaudible) that the price factor is concerned that the prices at which the fixed supply of gas is required to be supplied to REL subject to and under the terms of the TSC which RIL entered into with ministry of petroleum on 12th april 2000
    G- hun hun huh un
    R- that was the judgment itself
    G- ok
    R- para 311 is contract is subject to approval of the government in view of any LP and TSC
    G- yeah
    R- and para 316 refers to the TSC that (sic) entered into on the 12th of april and…..uh…. price will be a factor which will be subject to that approval
    G- ok great… so..( laughs)… the same para..(laughs) again figures in both the arguments … hai na?
    R- yeah
    G- 316… haan to that’s fine I think these things are bound to be there….. achcha what is the other thing about …uh… some uh penalty…and whatever uh this one was saying…uh Jaipal(unclear) was saying…. (inaudivel utterances)
    R- you see…his… I saw that on your ticker I think you people are saying that the government may …uuhh

    G- yeah
    R- How can we give gas that doesn’t belong to us?
    G- ok
    R- but I would not think they’ll give me a ..give us a penalty… I think ….. uh… they will rap us..rap us on our knuclkles by saying why did you do this.
    G- ok.. so..
    R- but I have a feeling that the government is going to tell mukesh ambani … who were you to sign this agreement… it dint belong to you
    G- ok.. yeah but…uh
