new Delhi:

Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), the country’s largest petroleum company, decreased its net profit by 47 percent in the first quarter ended June. The company’s refining margin has come down due to the fuel demand affected due to the Kovid-19 epidemic, due to which its profit has come down. In a communication sent to the stock exchanges, the company said that its single net profit during the quarter declined by 46.8 per cent to Rs 1,910.84 crore or Rs 2.08 per share. This resulted in a single net profit of Rs 3,596.11 crore or Rs 3.92 per share in the same quarter of the previous financial year. Most of the time in the first quarter, Corona remained in lockdown due to the virus. During this time, the movement of vehicles was controlled.
