Commenting on the Q1 results of the Bank, Shri Mahabaleshwara M. S., Managing Director & CEO of the Bank, said that “Inspite of the hardships posed by the second wave of COVID 19 pandemic, Bank has been able to continue its satisfactory performance during the first quarter of the current year also. Significant improvement in asset quality as evidenced by the decline in GNPAs to 4.82 % from 4.91% and net NPAs to 3.00% from 3.18 % as at 31-03-2021, coupled with improved NII, NIM, PCR etc are testimony for the successful handling of the impact of the pandemic. The reduction in net profit on year on year basis is mainly on account of decline in treasury gains, which is dependent on the yield movements. Compared to the sequential previous quarter (Q4 of FY 21) the advances have shown marginal increase and is expected to consolidate further during the second quarter of the current year. Hence, the core business is expected to do well going forward, besides further improving the asset quality. Further, in today’s Board, we have also deliberated about capital augmentation through QIP and the process would be taken forward after the due approval of the shareholders".
