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

Kokos Jiang is the owner of Sugico Group in Indonesia from whom Reliance Power had acquired the entire economic interest in three coal mining concessions in Indonesia in 2010.

Shares of Reliance Power were trading 0.74 percent higher at Rs 33.95 apiece on BSE.
