Steel wheels-maker Wheels India on Wednesday reported a decline in its standalone net profit for the fourth quarter ending March 31, 2020. The dip by Rs 4.62 crore was due to the impact on sales and profits by the COVID-19 lockdown in the country.

The city-based company registered standalone net profit of Rs 19.71 crore during the corresponding quarter previous year.

For the full year ending March 31, 2020, the standalone net profits were at Rs 54.11 crore against Rs 75.67 crore a year ago.
