It has also recommended a 60 per cent dividend. SBM's aggregate deposits grew 23.52 per cent during the fiscal to touch Rs 10,860.5 crore, while advances grew 19.5 per cent to touch Rs 6,632.23 crore.

Retail and priority sector advances would continue to form the bulk of advances in the current fiscal, said Mr Y. Vijayanand, SBM Managing Director. He added that about Rs 1,050 crore would go to those two sectors.

Housing finance would form a larger share of total advances, he said, adding that the bank was also planning to focus on the personal segment.
