State-run engineering firm BHEL on Saturday reported a consolidated net loss of Rs 1,532.18 crore for the March quarter, mainly due to lower revenues and deferred tax.

BHEL has opted for new section 115BAA of the Income Tax Act, 1961 in the current year. Accordingly, deferred tax as on April 1, 2019 has been restated at the rate of 25.168 per cent which resulted in reversal of deterred tax assets by Rs 974.41 crore.

Consequently, profit after tax decreased by Rs 956.50 crore and other comprehensive income fell by Rs 17.91 crore, it said.

For the full fiscal 2019-20, the company suffered a consolidated net loss of Rs 1,468.35 crore. It had posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 1,002.42 crore in 2018-19.
