On YoY basis, CASA ratio (ratio of current and savings accounts) to total deposits, stood was higher by 308 basis points at 44.28%. This is a trend that indicates falling cost of funds, since CASA funds are low cost. Net interest income or NII for the quarter increased by 14.38% YoY at Rs.8,552 crore.

Finally let us come to the bottom line of the company. Profit after tax (PAT) for the Dec-21 quarter was up by 106%; more than doubling YoY at Rs.2,464 crore. This was largely on account of a very steep 35% fall in provisions for loan losses in the quarter at a much lower level of Rs.2,688 crore.
