This had resulted in lower provision of Rs 193 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, and Rs 83 crore for the year ended March 31, 2017 with a consequent impact on the profit before tax. “In the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the company has made additional provision of Rs 83 crore against the above mentioned 100% provision cases,” the release said.
