For the quarter ended June 2021, Canara Bank had reported a 3-fold jump in net profits to Rs.1,178 crore. However, total revenues in the quarter were up just about 3% at Rs.21,210 crore. The profit growth had been largely an outcome of a sharp fall in provisions for loan losses in the Jun-21 quarter. The gross NPAs of Canara Bank had fallen 34 bps to 8.50%. The bank is perfectly poised to expand its loan book and that needs additional capital buffers.

Canara Bank was one of the acquiring banks in the government triggered merger of PSU banks. Accordingly, Syndicate Bank had been fully merged into Canara Bank for better synergies in the wholesale loan book and in treasury operations. The latest QIP will be an important step in Canara Bank becoming self-sufficient in capitalizing its balance sheet, instead of depending on central government infusion.
