Private sector lender HDFC Bank has seen no impact on the provisioning front due to exposures to the “couple of companies” featuring in the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) lists of loan defaulters, the bank’s deputy managing director, Paresh Sukthankar, told FE. In an exclusive interview, Sukthankar said no further provisioning was needed for those accounts as the bank had already set aside the required provisions. “Actually, we had a couple of names from both first and second lists and we do not require further provisions, because these are already NPAs in our book,” he said.

The banking sector has the potential to touch double-digit loan growth next year as there are signs of corporate demand picking up and other credit avenues stabilising, a top official of HDFC Bank has said. After clocking just under 10 per cent growth for almost a year, credit expansion fell to under 5 per cent starting November 2016.

Since then it has been struggling to cross the double digit mark on sustained basis due to the impact of demonetisation and the implementation of GST. “The demand so far has been essentially driven by working capital and some short term loans and, may be, a little bit of brownfield capex but you have not had a meaningful private investment especially from the private sector to give a boost to corporate credit demand,” Deputy MD Paresh Sukthankar told PTI.
