State-owned IDBI Bank's net loss nearly doubled at Rs 3,200 crore in the quarter to March 2017, mainly due to higher provisioning for bad loans. Bank's net loss was Rs 1,736 crore in the January-March quarter of 2015-16. As per the financial result posted by the bank on stock exchanges, its annual loss for 2016-17 too widened to Rs 5,158 crore as against Rs 3,665 crore in the previous fiscal. IDBI's total income during the fourth quarter of 2016-17 was Rs 8,048 crore, down from Rs 8,275 crore in the year-ago quarter leading to reduced operational income. The bank made provisions worth Rs 4590 crore in the fourth quarter to deal with non-performing assets (NPAs). The provisioning was Rs 3,331 crore in the corresponding quarter of 2015-16. The Gross NPAs almost doubled to 21.25 per cent of the gross advances in the fourth quarter of the last fiscal compared to 10.98 per cent in the corresponding period of the previous financial year.
The net NPAs were 13.21 per cent against 6.78 per cent.

The net interest margin (NIM) too has increased. IDBI Bank's share closed at Rs 70 apiece on BSE, down 7.77 per cent over yesterday.
