It holds interests in approximately 10 blocks located in the Barmer basin, the Krishna-Godavari basin, the Mumbai Offshore basin, the Kerala-Konkan basin, the Palar-Pennar basin, and the Cambay basin in India, as well as in the Mannar basin in Sri Lanka. The company also operates a pipeline and storage terminal. Cairn India sells its oil to refineries and gas to the public and private buyers. The company was incorporated in 2006 and is a subsidiary of Vedanta Resources Plc. In a recent development, Cairn India has made its latest oil discovery, the 26th discovery so far in the RJ-ON-90/1 block, following recent policy clarity by the Government of India to conduct exploration activity in development blocks.

The financial numbers of the company are quite impressive for Q3FY13. The topline witnessed a growth of 38.13 per cent on a YoY basis to stand at Rs 4277.61 crore for Q3FY13 as against Rs 3096.76 crore for Q3FY12.

On the valuation front, the stock discounts its trailing twelve-month earnings by 4.75x and the EV/EBITDA stands at 5.03x. The debt to equity ratio stands at a miniscule 0.06x.

Answering your query, we can say that it is a good idea to look at this counter as a long-term investment.
