The government has slapped an additional penalty of $792 million on Reliance Industries for producing less than targeted natural gas from its eastern offshore KG-D6 block. A notice disallowing $792 million out of the cost already incurred on the Bay of Bengal fields was sent to RIL on November 14, a petroleum and natural gas ministry official said here. With this, a total of $1.797 billion penalty in form of cost being disallowed has been levied on RIL for producing less than targeted output during the past three years.
