6 July 2004

                                 Board Changes

Vedanta Resources plc ('Vedanta'), the London listed diversified metals and
mining group, announces today that Brian Gilbertson will stand down as Chairman
of Vedanta with immediate effect. Michael Fowle CBE, who is currently senior
non-executive director of Vedanta, will take over as non-executive Chairman.

As a result of these changes, the appointment of further independent
non-executive directors will be made by the Board in due course.

Brian Gilbertson's position as Chairman was for a fixed term expiring at the
Annual General Meeting on 29th July 2004. Brian Gilbertson has now been
approached about a position in another company (not a direct competitor of
Vedanta, but an aluminium producer) that would involve certain executive
responsibilities. He is considering acceptance of that offer. To obviate any
possible conflict of interest, or the semblance thereof, it has been mutually
agreed that he will step down from the Chairmanship and the Board of Vedanta.

Anil Agarwal, Chief Executive of Vedanta, commented:

'We are extremely grateful to Brian for his counsel to Vedanta while he served
as Chairman and wish him well in his future endeavours. Michael Fowle's
considerable experience of business and finance, together with his knowledge of
India, will be great assets to Vedanta as we continue to grow our business.'
