Cairn Energy prepares to leave India

Help

Cairn Energy, one of Scotland's most successful companies, is retreating from the scene of its breakthrough success in India.

The firm suffered lengthy delays as it sought government approval for the sale of its controlling stake in joint venture Cairn India to mining firm Vedanta.

Its departure from India has become a focus for foreign investor concern about unpredictable bureaucracy in the country.
