The Cairn Vedanta Deal
In August 2010, Vedanta Resources indicated its interest in purchasing a controlling stake in Cairn India. Vedanta Resources is a global mining and metal company with its headquarters in London, United Kingdom. It was started in 1976 by Mr Anil Agarwal. Cairn India is a subsidiary of Cairn Energy Public Limited. (Cairn Energy is global oil and gasexploration company with its headquarters based in Edinburgh, United Kingdom.) This deal went on to become the most publicised deals of its time in India, and is currently in the final stages of completion. Chronological Events in the Cairn Vedanta Deal

Ltd (ONGC) follows through on the signal from the petroleum ministry to make a counter offer. 23 August 2010 | • Vedanta Resources Plc’s proposed acquisition of a majority stake in Cairn India Ltd for as much as $9.6 billion (Rs44,736 crore) may be scuppered by the ministry of petroleum and natural gas, which wants the oil explorer to offer state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp.
