Speaking about the performance, CV Rajendran, managing director & CEO, said “The results of the first quarter of FY21 underlines the fact that the bank is now well entrenched in earnings growth path despite testing times. Rs 54 crore net profit is the highest quarterly profit declared by our bank. This is after making healthy Covid-19 related provisions for Standard Assets on a proactive basis. We have used to the maximum advantage the TLTRO window of RBI and the results are evident in the improved NIM, which has crossed 4%.”

“Going forward, the key focus this fiscal will be to grow the gold loan book taking advantage of the relaxations in LTV by RBI while remaining ever vigilant of gold price volatility. New Retail banking team headed by Praloy will be in place by this quarter end and we expect green shoots on non-gold retail from the third quarter,” he added.
