New Delhi, August 11

The country’s largest lender State Bank of India today reported over five-fold jump in consolidated net profit to Rs 2,006 crore for the June quarter of the current fiscal even as non-performing assets (NPAs) or bad loans spiked sharply.

Posting first quarterly earnings after the merger with its five associate banks and Bharatiya Mahila Bank Ltd (BMBL), the state-owned bank said its net profit in the April-June quarter of last fiscal, 2016-17, was Rs 374 crore.

It said the figures, ratios and other information are based on the merged audited numbers. Asset quality of the bank slipped substantially because of higher accruals of bad loans from the books of associates, it added.

There were slippages with gross NPAs rising to 9.97% of the gross advances as on June 30, 2017, from 7.40% as at end-June 2016.

Net NPAs or bad loans too soared to 5.97% of the net advances by June end of this fiscal, up from 4.36% in the year-ago period.

The operating income of the bank fell by 5.17% to Rs 25,612 crore during April-June quarter of 2017-18, as against Rs 27,007 crore in the same period a year ago. Deposits as on June 2017 rose by 13.28% to Rs 26,02,534 crore from Rs 22,97,426 crore.
