Besides, the bank likely to get fund from the government during the financial year for pushing up credit growth.

"We have requested the government for infusion. The government will decide as to how to be given (it to) the bank" Mahapatra said.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has proposed, in the Union Budget for 2019-20, an allocation of Rs 70,000 crore for public sector banks (PSBs) to improve credit flow in the economy.

"The government has proposed to allocate Rs 70,000 crore for PSU Bank recapitalisation. Record recovery of over Rs 4 lakh crore has been achieved in the last 4 years. The provision coverage ratio is at its highest in 7 years and credit growth has improved to over 13 percent.

"The government has smoothly carried out consolidation reducing the number of public sector banks by 8. We have enabled 6 public sector banks out of PCA," Sitharaman had said.

During the first quarter ended 30 June, Syndicate Bank reported narrowing of its net loss to Rs 980.46 crore due to fall in provisioning for bad assets.

The bank had posted a net loss of Rs 1,281.77 crore in the same quarter previous fiscal.

Total income during the June quarter rose to Rs 6,080.69 crore from Rs 5,637.51 crore in the year-ago period.
