The audit report stated that Jio “realized exchange profit in the amount of of Rs 63.77 for fiscal years from 2012-13 and to 2014-15 in accordance with the annual financial statements and reconciliation of revenue that the company has together provided with the annual income reports. In Fiscal year 2013 Jio generated Rs 1.29 crore. Rs 4.67 crore in FY14 and Rs 20.81 crore in 2015 respectively.

Nevertheless, the forex trading profit was not included in the adjusted gross revenue (AGR) for the reason of the revenue share, thereby paying less royalty fee as a license to the government.
