Our loan book grew 8% vs Jun’22 / 44% vs Sep’21 to ₹ 20,938 crore and deposits are up 11% vs Jun’22 / 45% vs Sep’21. Retail deposits and CASA contribute to 61% and 26.9% of total deposit.

“This is largely due to sustained collection efficiency at pre-covid levels and normalised slippages; while recoveries continue to be strong. We continue to hold strong provisioning buffers on our books with PCR at 99%, resulting into NNPA of mere 0.04%. Additional provision of ₹30 crore is being used towards CRAR and ₹60 crore has been grouped as part of other provisions without utilising the same. We remain focused on building granular deposit franchise and continuously enhance digital capabilities to drive improved business and productivity levels. With recent capital raise and sustained high profitability, Sep’22 CRAR is far more than comfortable to capitalise on opportunities ahead”, he added.
