Anil Agarwal becomes Executive Chairman of Vedanta
Worth 700 million pounds


London, Mar 25, 2005

Leading NRI businessman Anil Agarwal has assumed charge as the Executive Chairman of Mumbai-based Vedanta Resources following the resignation of French Mining expert Michael Fowle from the post.

"While the board notes that the appointment of Anil Agarwal as chairman is not in compliance with the revised combined code, it believes that the new structure better reflects the needs for the development of the group and makes best use of the talents within our team," the company said.

"The board will have a healthy balance with a majority of non-executives." Fowle, a former KPMG partner, has resigned from the board. A second independent director Jean Pierre Rodier has also left less than a year after joining the company, a spokesman said.

Agarwal, who is worth 700 million pounds, controls 55 per cent of Vedanta's shares. He said he would step back from management and concentrate on expanding the business.

"I look forward to focusing on the exciting opportunities available to the group in India," he said.

Fowle had departed amicably with one year's remuneration, 250,000 pounds. He is 65, the spokesman said declining to say why Rodier had left.

The reshuffle gives the company its third chairman in two years. Brian Gilbertson, a South African, who merged Billiton with BHP, chaired the company during its listing on the London Stock Exchange in December, 2003.

The chief operating officer Kuldip Kaura has been appointed chief executive and a board member, Euan Macdonald, formerly with HSBC in India, has been made a director. PTI
