GAIL India Ltd had on Friday posted a massive 64 per cent drop in its December quarter net profit as it could not sell imported gas contracted at higher price.

Net profit in October-December at Rs 604.08 crore was 64 per cent lower compared to Rs 1,679.4 crore in the same period a year ago, the company had said in a statement.
