Referring to capital infusion, the SBI chief said the central government is extending about Rs 3,000 crore by the end of the current fiscal.
This was part of Rs 12,000 crore infusion plan approved by the Finance Ministry recently.
Last fiscal, the government had infused Rs 7,900 crore in SBI to increase the Tier-I capital of the country's largest bank. Following the capital infusion in March last year, the government holding in SBI rose to 61.58 per cent from 59.4 per cent.
The government was infusing funds in public sector banks in the last couple of years to strengthen finances, Chaudhuri said.
