The reported divergence was for the prior period ended FY 15-16.
With ongoing remedial actions undertaken by the Bank during FY 16-17, there have been several reductions/ exits/partial sale to ARCs/improvements in account conduct which significantly reduced the overall gross NPA outstanding to Rs 1039.9 Cr as on March 31, 2017.
The outstanding GNPA as on March 31, 2017 includes one borrower with an exposure of INR 911.5 Crores (88%) which is expected to be recovered in near term. Specific provision held in this account was Rs 227.9 Crores.
After duly taking into account provision impact of the divergences, the Bank’s Credit Cost was at 53 bps for FY17 and 19 bps for Q4FY17.
Therefore, the Bank reiterates that there is No Carry Forward impact of the divergence observed by RBI in FY17-18.
