While that momentum may have reduced due to the onset of a second wave, the mass vaccination drive should help getting things back on track. We look forward to participating in this journey with a strengthened balance sheet during the year. During FY21, as well as Q4, the Bank witnessed healthy growth in its top line as well as in its pre-provision operating profits.

The bank has conservatively built a strong provision cover 75% resulting in a net NPA of 0.69% compared to previous year of 0.91%. The bank is also carrying significant buffers outside these provisions as a prudent measure. Our areas of domain expertise such as vehicle finance, micro-finance and diamond finance have witnessed strong disbursements and we expect the growth to become further broad-based in the current financial year."
