Reliance Power said the arbitration related to a contractual dispute in the context of company's coal mines in Indonesia.

"The Arbitration Tribunal constituted under Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) rules in Singapore, in its award on August 21, 2018, has ordered the respondents jointly and severally to pay USD 56 million to Reliance Power Netherlands BV," Reliance Power said in a regulatory filing.
