    NEW DELHI, Oct 21 (Reuters) - India's Reliance Industries, owner of the world's

    Reliance reduced imports of African grades in September to about 13.3% from about 16% in
August, the data showed. 
    The share of Latin American oil declined to 16% from about a fifth, while that of Middle
Eastern grades rose to 60% from about 48% of overall imports.
