Total income of the bank rose to Rs 2,184.22 crore as against Rs 1,790.77 crore in the same period a year ago.

The gross non-performing assets (NPAs) as a percentage of total advances by end of December 2018 fell to 9.94 percent as against 10.08 percent as on 31 December, 2017, it said.

However, net NPAs rose marginally to 4.59 percent of the net loans from 4.29 percent in the corresponding period a year ago.

The NPA coverage ratio, though static on a year-on-year basis and still comparable with the best in the industry, has seen a dip on sequential basis to 65.82 percent mainly on account of downgrade of IL&FS which reflects that the bank has been able to tide over the IL&FS shock without any major deterioration in the balance sheet parameters, it said.

From now onwards, the bank will focus on the transformation exercise by aggressively implementing the business plan 2022 prepared in consultation with management consultants and expects to clock a profit of Rs 2,000 crore by end of 2022.
