CEO Speak:

Speaking about the performance Mr. Pralay Mondal, Managing Director & CEO said, “The last quarter gone by was reasonably stable for us. Our efforts have always been to grow 30 to 50% faster than the system. The liquidity conditions prevailed in the system did pose some challenges in funds management. We focused more on deposits this quarter and could register a growth of 21% on a YoY basis whereas the industry grew by 13%. On the advance front (net) we registered a growth of 23% vis a vis 16% industry (without merger). Gold, Retail ex gold and SME did well in the quarter with a YoY growth of 23%, 44% and 28% respectively. Effective fund management duly factoring the cost considerations helped us to maintain a NIM of above 5% for Q3 and the 9 months ended 31.12.23. All other key ratios like, CRAR, RoA, NPA ratios etc continue to be strong

SBS journey got the much needed booster when we kick started the CBS migration project in the bank. A detailed blue print has been prepared for the implementation and we are progressing there. Once the products/processes stabilizes post the new CBS roll out, our customer acquisition pace will go up significantly and will lay a stronger foundation for the scale phase. Our vision is to transform from a small bank to a mid-sized bank by FY 2030 and the entire team is working passionately for making this a reality.”
