Of the total loan assets of Rs 42,264 crore, home loans constituted 32 per cent. Gold loans were up 29 per cent, business loans 18 per cent and microfinance loans 9 per cent.

Jain said the pre-provisioning operating profit of Rs 615.4 crore is the highest ever for the company and attributed the same to volume growth and reduction in cost of funds, which declined on an average by 10 basis points to 9 per cent.

Retail home loans grew 9 per cent to Rs 13,445 crore. The primary focus in this segment is on affordable and non-metro housing loans.

The gold loan book grew to Rs 12,212 crore, up 61 per cent, as gold prices soared due to the coronavirus pandemic and a large number of people pawned their jewellery for cash to run their homes.

The microfinance business continued to grow steadily with the loan book clipping at 33 per cent to Rs 3,920 crore, while secured business loans grew 7 per cent to Rs 5,411 crore and the unsecured segment continued to decline.
