Besides RIL, state-owned INDIAN OIL CORP, HINDUSTAN PETROLEUM CORP and MANGALORE REFINERY AND PETROCHEMCIALS and private sector ESSAR OIL exported gasoline this fiscal year, he said in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha (upper house).

* During April-December, gasoline was exported by these firms to Indonesia, Iran, Kenya, Mauritius, Mozambique, Nepal, Oman, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Yemen and the UAE.

* "Supply of gasoline to Iran was made only by RIL in April and May, 2009," he said. No gasoline was exported to Iran thereafter by any Indian company.
