Asset quality, provision writeback

The bank said it held an aggregate COVID-19-related provision of Rs 1,279 crore as of September 30, 2021. Based on the improved outlook, the bank reversed provisions amounting to Rs 279 crore during the quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2021. This helped boost its bottom line during the third quarter.

However, on a prudent basis, the bank continues to hold provisions aggregating to Rs 1,000 crore as of December 31, 2021 against the potential impact of COVID-19 based on the circumstances at this point in time.

The bank’s asset quality also showed signs of improvement. Its gross non-performing assets fell to Rs 6,983 crore as of Dec. 31, 2021, from Rs 7,126 crore on a proforma basis a year earlier and from Rs 7,658 crore in September 2021.

The bank’s gross NPA ratio was 2.71% and net NPA ratio was 0.79%. This compares with 2.26% and 0.50%, respectively, a year earlier. However, the bank said its gross NPA and net NPA would have been 3.27% and 1.24%, respectively, a year earlier had the Supreme Court not issued an interim order directing that accounts that were not declared as NPA till August 31, 2020 should not be declared as NPA till further orders.
