India yet to give the nod. The HSD is to be exported via sea-route. The Numaligarh Refinery Limited (NRL) has also come under scanner. However, NRL sources refuted apprehension of it getting stalled.

The complexities in the process, sources said, are a part of it and there is also a provision in the contract of further extending the time.
