Fuel retailers post Rs 69K cr profit in Apr-Dec, higher than pre-oil crisis

State-owned fuel retailers Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd reported bumper profit totalling over Rs 69,000 crore in the first nine months of the current fiscal which far exceeded their annual earning in pre-oil crisis years. The combined net profit of IOC, BPCL and HPCL in April-December FY24 was better than their annual earning of Rs 39,356 crore in pre-oil crisis year, regulatory filings by them showed. The retailers have resisted calls to revert to daily price revision and pass on softening in rates to consumers on grounds that prices continue to be extremely volatile - rising on one day and falling on the other - and that their past losses have not been fully recouped. The three companies, which control roughly 90 per cent of India's fuel market, 'voluntarily' have not changed petrol, diesel and cooking gas (LPG) prices for almost two years now, resulting in losses when input cost was higher and profits when raw .

North East LPG cylinder carriers of Indian Oil Corp go on indefinite strike

LPG cylinder transporters of Indian Oil Corporation on Wednesday went on an indefinite strike for the second time in less than two months, alleging pending dues and low rates in recently floated tenders. An IOC official, however, termed the strike as illegal. The decision to go for the shutdown was taken after a meeting called by the Food, Public Distribution & Consumer Affairs Department of Assam between IOC and the North East Packed LPG Transporter Association (NEPLTA) failed to yield any solution to the prolonged stalemate. "The government called us yesterday to talk about our demands. We reiterated our old issues, mostly related to pending dues and low rates in the tenders. However, the IOC was reluctant to talk about those," NEPLTA chief adviser Kumud Nath told PTI. The association had also written to the chief secretary on January 5, flagging the same issues and urged him to take necessary steps, he said. "The government had called yesterday's meeting, accordingly, to find .

IOC Q3 net profit soars to Rs 8,063 cr, on road to best-ever annual earning

Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) on Wednesday reported a massive jump in its third quarter net profit as compared to the year-ago period when it was financially struggling as input raw material crude oil prices spiked but retail finished product prices remained on freeze. Standalone net profit of Rs 8,063.39 crore in October-December 2023-24 was higher than Rs 448.01 crore profit in the same period a year ago but lower than Rs 12,967.32 crore earnings in the preceding three months ended September 30, 2023, according to a stock exchange filing by the company. The profit was aided by a boost in marketing margins as a freeze on petrol and diesel price revision despite a fall in input crude oil prices helped recover losses incurred when rates were high in 2022-23. Pre-tax earnings from sale of petroleum products soared to Rs 11,428.88 crore in the third quarter of the current fiscal compared to Rs 1,541.95 crore in the same period last year.
