Indian Oil Corporation in May reported a net profit of Rs 8,781.30 crore for the January-March quarter. During the same period of FY20, the company had reported a net loss of Rs 5,185.32 crore. The profits during the last quarter of FY21 came on account of higher inventory gain and higher petrochemical margin during the current year. Its revenue from operations for the period under review increased 17.7 per cent to nearly Rs 1.64 lakh crore, the company said in a regulatory filing. The Board of Directors of the corporation has declared a final dividend of Rs 1.50 per equity share.
