During the year, the company acquired all the shares of Cairn India Holdings Ltd (CIHL) and consequently CIHL became a wholly owned subsidiary of the company. CIHL is also a holding company for 26 other companies. Consequently, all these companies became subsidiaries of the company. In January 9, 2007, the company was listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange of India.

In the year 2011, Cairn Energy Developments Pte Ltd, subsidiary company in Singapore was voluntarily dissolved with effect from 8 March, 2011. In order to simplify and consolidate the multi layered structure comprising foreign subsidiaries, the company proposed a scheme of arrangement between Cairn India Ltd, Cairn Energy India Pty Ltd, Cairn Energy India West B.V., Cairn Energy Cambay B.V., Cairn Energy Gujarat B.V. The scheme is now subject to receipt of certain contractual and regulatory approvals. The scheme when approved is proposed to be effective from 1 January, 2010.

The proposed transaction was agreed and announced by the two companies in August 2010, and approved by the shareholders of Cairn Energy PLC and Vedanta Resources Plc in fourth quarter financial year 2010.
