India's largest steel producing company, Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) said it witnessed a dip of 42.92 per cent in net profits for the third quarter ended December 31, 2011 at Rs 632.12 crore.

The company said that the growth was hit by the increase in the cost of raw materials and forex loss due to the steep depreciation in the value of the rupee against US dollar and euro during the quarter.
