State-owned Indian Oil Corp (IOC) reported an over two-fold jump in net profit to Rs 1,634 crore for the quarter ended December 31,2010.

Net profit was up 134.7 per cent to Rs 1,634.76 crore in the October-December quarter from Rs 696.59 crore in the same period a year ago,the company said in a statement.

The profit was higher after the government approved the release of an Rs 8,000 crore cash subsidy to IOC and the other state-owned fuel retailers to make up for half of the revenues they lost on selling diesel,domestic LPG and kerosene below cost in the third quarter.

Out of the total cash subsidy,IOC got Rs 4,442.45 crore,while Bharat Petroleum Corp (BPCL) got Rs 1,809.85 crore and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL) Rs 1,747.70 crore.

IOC,BPCL and HPCL currently lose Rs 9.23 per litre on diesel,Rs 21.60 per litre on kerosene and Rs 356.07 per 14.2-kg LPG cylinder.
