                             Dividend Arrangements

Vedanta Resources plc ('Vedanta') announced an interim dividend of US 15 cents
per Ordinary Share on 16 November 2006 in respect of the six months ended 30
September 2006. The dividend will be paid out in US dollars on 11 January 2007
to those shareholders on the Register on 8 December 2006.

Shareholders may elect to receive the dividend in UK pounds sterling if they
wish. The Board has determined that the exchange rate to be applied to convert
the dividend into UK pounds will be £0.526 to the US dollar, equating to 7.89
pence per Ordinary Share. This exchange rate is based on the average exchange
rate for the five business days prior to the announcement of the Company's
interim results on 16 November 2006.

Shareholders wishing to receive their dividends in UK pounds sterling should
notify the Company's Registrars by 27 December 2006. The Company's Registrars
can also arrange for dividends to be paid direct into shareholders' UK bank
accounts. This arrangement will only be available in respect of dividends paid
in UK pounds sterling.

contacted at PO Box 82, The Pavilions, Bridgwater Road, Bristol BS99 7NH or on
