This has resulted in a cumulative profit of Rs 68.09 crore for Shipping Corporation of India for the fiscal half-year ended September 30, 2014, compared a loss of Rs.222.23 crore during the half year ended September 30, 2013. This is the third quarter in a row that Shipping Corporation of India has reported a profit after three consecutive years of losses.
