We revise our rating to ‘Hold’ from ‘Reduce’ on the stock with a revised upward target price of ₹38 based on 1.6x FY22E Adj BVPS.

Interest income witnessed a growth of 21 per cent annualised, driven by 8 per cent y-o-y increase in advances; pre-provision profit reported a growth of 64 per cent on a y-o-y basis due to lower opex and strong sequential recovery in other income; higher Current Account Savings Account ratio to reduce cost of funds; collection efficiency improved from 54 per cent in June 2020 to 88 per cent in October 2020; and asset quality remained stable with prudent provisioning as Provision coverage stands at 86 per cent
