SBI said its digital strategy is on track as it opened 38% of retail asset accounts and 72% of savings accounts through its Yono app in the first quarter.

The bank recorded strong growth in personal retail loans, driven by home loans, credit and gold loans. It added the growth in corporate loans will revive in line with recovery in the investment cycle in the broader economy.

The state-run lender also said it has well provided for its stressed book with its provision coverage ratio at 85.93% as of June 30, 2021.

It acknowledged that the Covid-19 pandemic across the globe has resulted in a decline in economic activities and that the situation remains uncertain.It said that major challenges for the bank could be from extended working capital cycles, fluctuating cash flow trends and probable inability of the borrowers to repay their loans timely.
