Governmental oversight essential for energy prices: PM

"The government has initiated gas-pricing policy reforms to incentivise production of natural gas. We are conscious that remunerative energy prices are needed to ensure expanded energy supplies," Prime Minister said at the Asia Gas Partnership Summit here.

"At the same time, oil & gas are natural resources and therefore should be within the framework of governmental and regulatory oversight. The economic exploitation of these resources should lead to a win-win solution for both investors as well as the people of India," he added.

He said the government was committed to taking steps to find viable solutions to meet concerns of the gas industry.
