Company background

India's largest commercial enterprise, Indian Oil leads various segments of the country's oil and gas industry. Along with subsidiary Chennai Petroleum, the group controls roughly 50% of the market for petroleum products and 30% of national refining capacity.

The Indian government owns nearly 70% of the Fortune 500 company; indirectly, the government holds another 19% stake through state energy companies Oil and Natural Gas Corp. and Oil India.

Indian Oil was established in 1959 with the aim of making India self-sufficient in oil refining and marketing operations. Originally known as Indian Oil Company, it adopted its present name in 1964 after a merger with Indian Refineries, established in 1958. Under the administrative control of the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, the company has also made forays into alternative energy, including wind, solar, biofuels and nuclear power. The group has three Indian subsidiaries and six international ones, along with 16 joint ventures.

B. Ashok, who joined the company in 1981, has served as Indian Oil's chairman since July 2014. Long a key figure in guiding the business, he is behind initiatives such as installing pilfer-proof locks on tanker trucks to prevent theft and tampering. Another example is a smartphone app that keeps Indian Oil field officers abreast of business information in real time. The chairman is known to be an avid reader, musician and sports enthusiast.
