STANDALONE FINANCIAL RESULTS:

Profit & Loss Account: Quarter ended June 30, 2021

The Bank’s net revenues (net interest income plus other income) increased by 18.0% to ₹ 23,297.5 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 from ₹ 19,740.7 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Net interest income (interest earned less interest expended) for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 grew to ₹ 17,009.0 crore from ₹ 15,665.4 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, driven by advances growth of 14.4%, and a core net interest margin of 4.1%. The Bank’s continued focus on deposits helped in the maintenance of a healthy liquidity coverage ratio at 126%, well above the regulatory requirement.

During the quarter, the country was hit by a “second wave” of COVID-19, with a significant surge in cases following the discovery of mutant coronavirus strains. While there was an improvement towards the end, business activities remained curtailed for almost two thirds of the quarter. These disruptions led to a decrease in retail loan originations, sale of third party products, card spends and efficiency in collection efforts. The lower business volumes, coupled with higher slippages, resulted in lower revenues, as well as an enhanced level of provisioning.

Other income (non-interest revenue) at ₹ 6,288.5 crore was 27.0% of net revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and grew by 54.3% over ₹ 4,075.3 crore in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The four components of other income for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 were fees & commissions of ₹ 3,885.4 crore (₹ 2,230.7 crore in the corresponding quarter of the previous year), foreign exchange & derivatives revenue of ₹ 1,198.7 crore (₹ 436.6 crore in the corresponding quarter of the previous year), gain on sale / revaluation of investments of ₹ 601.0 crore (₹ 1,086.7 crore in the corresponding quarter of the previous year) and miscellaneous income, including recoveries and dividend, of ₹ 603.5 crore (₹ 321.3 crore in the corresponding quarter of the previous year).

Operating expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 were ₹ 8,160.4 crore, an increase of 18.1% over ₹ 6,911.5 crore during the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The cost-to-income ratio for the quarter was at 35.0%.

Pre-provision Operating Profit (PPOP) at ₹ 15,137.0 crore grew by 18.0% over the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

Provisions and contingencies for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 were ₹ 4,830.8 crore (consisting of specific loan loss provisions of ₹ 4,219.7 crore and general and other provisions of ₹ 611.1 crore) as against ₹ 3,891.5 crore (consisting of specific loan loss provisions of ₹ 2,739.8 crore and general and other provisions of ₹ 1,151.7 crore) for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Total provisions for the current quarter included contingent provisions of approximately ₹ 600 crore.

As mentioned earlier, the “second wave” of COVID-19 disrupted business activities for close to two thirds of the quarter, leading to a decrease in the efficiency in collection efforts, and a higher level of provisions.
