The decline in income from fees and services in Q1 to ₹668 crore (₹ 916 crore) was largely made good by the 34.6 per cent increase in interest income to ₹1,412 crore (₹1,049 crore).

While card-in-force grew 20 per cent to 1.06 crore (0.88 crore), spends for the quarter under review fell sharply to ₹19,085 crore (₹30,174 crore).
