Enron debates India future
The Indian arm of the US-based power company, Enron, is meeting in London for crucial talks on the company's future in India.

IT follows a payment row with the western state of Maharashtra.

The meeting is being attended by foreign and local lenders of the Dabhol Power Company from Maharashtra - 65% of which is owned by Enron.

A spokesman for the company refused to comment on the meeting but Indian media have been speculating that the company will seek lenders' permission to wind up its operations in Maharashtra.

Enron is the largest single foreign investor in India and the dispute has already caused the company to freeze most of its investment plans in the country.
