Mr. Ittira Davis, MD & CEO, of Ujjivan Small Finance Bank said, “Q2FY23 is another milestone quarter with record profitability. While disbursements continue to sustain the Rs 4,000+ crore mark, deposit growth took off well this quarter driven by retail deposits. Our loan book grew 8% vs Jun’22 / 44% vs Sep’21 to ₹ 20,938* crore and deposits are up 11% vs Jun’22 / 45% vs Sep’21. Retail deposits and CASA contribute to 61% and 26.9% of total deposits. PAR continues to improve, currently at 6.1%* vs. 7.9%* as on Jun’22. This is largely due to sustained collection efficiency at pre-covid levels and normalized slippages; while recoveries continue to be strong. We continue to hold strong provisioning buffers on our books with PCR at 99%, resulting in an NNPA of a mere 0.04%. An additional provision of ₹30 crores is being used towards CRAR and ₹60 crores have been grouped as part of other provisions without utilizing the same. We remain focused on building a granular deposit franchise and continuously enhancing digital capabilities to drive improved business and productivity levels. With recent capital raise and sustained high profitability, Sep’22 CRAR is far more than comfortable to capitalise on opportunities ahead.”
