“With a further improved Tier-1 capital adequacy ratio of 32.72 per cent and total capital adequacy of 35.58 per cent, sufficient liquidity due to very efficient liability management, stable quality of portfolio of around 1.16 per cent of net stage 3 assets, and by creating additional provisioning buffer, which stands at 1.69 per cent of on-book assets, should enable the company to navigate the current unprecedented situation successfully,” Patel added.
