Updated : April 26, 2019 06:50 AM IST
India produced 34.2 million tonne of crude oil in the fiscal year ended March 31, down from 35.7 million tonne in the previous year, according to data released by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas.
Fields in the private sector saw a production drop of nearly 2 percent to 9.8 million tonne mainly because of lower output at Cairn India's Rajasthan oilfields.
During March, the country's total crude oil production fell to 2.85 million tonne from 3.04 million tonne in the corresponding month of the previous fiscal year.
