Moody’s has stated in its rating rationale that the bank’s asset quality has improved considerably, with both gross and net non-performing loan ratios declining. It has also stated that the bank’s provision coverage has expanded and credit prices have decreased. Higher profitability has resulted from lower credit costs.

The Bank has also decreased its Net NPA from 1.05 in the previous financial year to 0.73 in the current financial year.
