Coal India on Saturday reported the lowest quarterly profit since its listing in November 2010 as fuel and wage costs climbed, report Agencies. It posted an over 28% fall in consolidated net profit to R2,192 crore in the second quarter of this fiscal, against a profit of R3,052 crore in the same quarter previous year.
