The subsidy payout in first quarter ended June 30 compared to Rs 12,346 crore in same quarter last fiscal.ONGC has foregone Rs 90,500 crore of profit in the last five years. Banerjee said profits were also lower because of the one-time charge towards employee pension benefits. Turnover was marginally lower at Rs 19,308.93 crore in first quarter compared to Rs 20,177.78 crore a year ago. Revenues were lower because the company realised lesser price for crude oil it sold, he said, adding that production increased to 6.025 million tonnes from 6.007 million tonnes.
