India's oil imports from Iran down 57% in April
NEW DELHI: India’s oil imports from Iran fell about 57 per cent year-on-year in April, according to tanker arrival data seen by Reuters, the last month when New Delhi was allowed to load Iranian oil ahead of US sanctions stopping purchases of oil from the Opec member.
India, Iran’s top oil client after China, shipped in about 277,600 barrels per day (bpd) of oil from Tehran in April, down about 31.5 per cent from the previous month, preliminary tanker arrival data from shipping and industry sources showed.
The United States introduced sanctions in November but gave a six-month waiver to eight nations, including India, which allowed them to import some Iranian oil.
India was allowed to buy an average 300,000 bpd of oil during November-April, but actual volumes varied from month to month due to lack of ships after foreign shipping lines backed out of Iranian deals under pressure from US sanctions.
In April, Washington asked buyers of Iranian oil, mostly in Asia, to halt purchases or face sanctions.

India did well to bargain its position on chabahar, its not as if our whole diplomatic ties are cut with Iran... This tyranny of US will not go for long, India need to protect its own interests first... Now rising fuel prices wont help us either, there is need for us to reduce dependence on energy from other countries.. Govt need to be more proactive in implementation of e-vehicles and look for other after alternatives as well..

Time for India to negotiate with Iran. Pay to Iran against Indian Rupees. Sign a 99 year old lease for exclusive use of Gwadar port. It''s a selfish World, nobody cares about anyone. Why should India care welfare of US.

U.S. sanctions came into effect in November 2018 intended to force Iran to dramatically alter its policies in the region, including its support for militant groups in the region and its development of ballistic missiles

India's interest is in cooperation with USA. Iran has to introspect. When Modi went to Israel, Khamenei spoke against India on Kashmir. Iran also acts in its own interests.
