The Supreme Court said in the case that the Malaysian court has properly investigated the issue. The award has not rejected India's public policy as it is a later event.

The court said that the enforcement court cannot give evidence again. In fact, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas had appealed against a foreign arbitration award in which Vedanta and Videocon Industries were allowed by the government to recover $ 499 million instead of $ 198 million. This award was given between 2000 and 2007 for the development of Ravva oil and gas fields off the Andhra Pradesh coast.
