MUMBAI (Reuters) - Tata Steel Ltd, the world's No.8 steelmaker by output, posted a consolidated June quarter loss as poor demand at its European unit Corus and lower steel prices weighed on earnings.

Its consolidated April-June net loss after minority interest and share of profits of associates was 22.09 billion rupees compared with a profit of 39.01 billion rupees a year earlier.

Consolidated net sales fell to 231.81 billion rupees from 433.75 billion a year ago.

A Reuters poll of six analysts had estimated consolidated net profit of 660 million rupees on net sales of 230 billion rupees.
