The net interest margin (NIM) of the bank came in at 4.78 per cent in the quarter compared to 4.01 per cent in the same quarter last year. The bank's core operating profit (excluding treasury gains) during the June quarter stood at 13,887 crore, compared to 10,273 crore in the year-ago period.

Asset Quality

The bank's asset quality improved as the gross non-performing assets (GNPAs) during the June quarter came in at 31,822 crore, compared to 33,163 crore, registering a decline of 3.4 per cent year-on-year. At 5,381.77 crore, the net non-performing assets (NNPA) also declined to 0.48 per cent in the June quarter from 0.70 per cent in the year-ago quarter.

The bank has written off gross NPAs amounting to 1,169 crore in the quarter-under-review. The provision coverage ratio on NPAs was 82.4 per cent at June 30, 2023. The bank's provisions (excluding provision for tax) during the said quarter stood at 1,292 crore, compared to 1,144 crore in the year-ago period.

The asset quality is one of the most critical areas in determining the overall health of the bank as it reflects the existing and potential credit risk associated with its loan and investment portfolios, and other assets, as well as off-balance sheet transactions.
