Portfolio Quality:

The sustained slowdown in the economy and reduction in freight earnings of the borrowers resulted in continued pressure on the asset quality. With a vigorous focus on portfolio quality, the Company contained GNPA at 1.9% and NNPA at 0.7%. We continue to follow an aggressive provisioning policy resulting in an incremental provision of 122 crores above RBI norms thus ensuring provision coverage of 60%. We continue to follow a stringent credit selection approach which is reflected in the disbursement growth being relatively lower as compared to the previous year especially in the vehicle finance business.
