 The FY 2013-14 started on a positive note with RBI cutting the repo
 rate by 25 bps to 7.25% in May 2013. The 10 year benchmark yield fell
 from 8.01% in April 2013 to 7.09% in May 2013. However, conditions
 deteriorated for Indian financial markets after Federal Reserve''s
 announcement of its intention to taper QE purchases which led to a
 sharp depreciation of the rupee.
 The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced unprecedented measures like
 capping Repo borrowing to 0.5% of NDTL and increasing MSF rate by 200
 bps to 10.25% which led to a sudden surge in bond yields to 9.48%.
 Conditions improved from October 2013 onwards with RBI gradually
 reversing many of the tightening measures and injecting liquidity into
 the financial system through term repos. As RBI remained focused on
 inflation control, benchmark yields closed the year at elevated levels.
 During FY 2013-14, the Bank made record profit of Rs.1,846 crores from
 sale of investments as against Rs.180 crores in FY 2012-13. Moreover, in

 banks in CRR maintenance by about 270 basis points, resulting in
 interest cost savings of over Rs.100 crores.
 Equity markets witnessed a rally from September on improvement in
 macroeconomic parameters like stable exchange rate and current account
 deficit buoying FII inflows. During FY 2013-14, the Bank''s active equity
 portfolio (excluding Non Performing Investments) yielded a cash flow
 return of 22.73% against a Nifty return of 17.12%.  If we reckon the
 dividend income, the return improves further to 25.56%. During the
 year, the Bank participated in select Equity MFs, IPOs, Offers for Sale
 and FPOs.
 The Bank continued to explore opportunities in the area of private
 equity and venture capital fund investments.  During FY 2013-14,

 i.3 NPA Management
 A depressed macro-economic environment in FY 2013-14 led to increased
 loan defaults with deterioration in asset quality of Indian banks.
 Slippages have occurred across all sectors and today, resolution of
 NPAs is the single largest challenge before all banks.
 Stressed Assets Management Group (SAMG) is a dedicated and specialized
 vertical, headed by a Deputy Managing Director, created specially to
 efficiently resolve high value NPAs. Today SAMG has 16 SAMG branches and
 43 SARBs across the country. Currently, SAMG covers 23.79% and 54.33%
 of the Bank''s Non Performing Assets (NPAs) and Advances under
 Collection Account (AUCA) respectively.  The recovery efforts of SAMG
 are supplemented by efforts put in by front-line operating staff at our
 15,869 branches across the country. Besides, Account Tracking &
 Monitoring (AT & M) Centres have been operationalised in all Circles to
 contact retail Special Mention Accounts (SMAs) and NPAs.  Business
 Correspondents, Business Facilitators and Self Help Groups are also
 involved in recovery of Agricultural NPAs.
 The sale of final assets to ARCs has resulted in reduction of NPAs by Rs.
 3,590 crores and AUCA reversal of Rs.1,092 crores.  different strategies
 were adopted for achieving optimum sales level and price.
 SAMG resorts to Various strategies to resolve stressed assets. Some of
 these are enumerated below:
 Restructuring of both Standard assets and NPAs, either though the
 corporate debt restructuring mechanism or through a bilateral
 Recovery through auction of assets using the Securitisation and
 Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest
 (SARFAESI) route.
 Filing suits in Debt Recovery Tribunals and other Courts for recovery
 of dues.
 Identifying and engaging with strategic investors for takeover of
 stressed assets.
 Sale of NPAs to Asset Reconstruction Companies.
 Entering into One-Time Settlements with borrowers.
 Using Resolution Agents to take possession of properties mortgaged to
 the Bank and arranging for their auction.  Using the e-auction platform
 to reach out to as many prospective bidders as possible.  Considering
 Debt Asset swaps in some cases.  Engaging investigation agencies to
 trace out unencumbered promoter and guarantor assets and obtaining
 attachment before judgements over these properties.
 Identifying Companies and promoters as Willful Defaulters and arranging
 for display of their names on the websites of Credit Information
 Companies such as CIBIL. These names are also reported to the RBI.
 Publishing photographs of defaulters in newspapers where warranted.
 Persuading large Corporate borrowers under stress to sell non-core
 assets, dilute their shareholding and bring in strategic investors thus
 reducing debt and improving viability.  Asset Quality Improvement
 measures for P-Segment The Special One Time Settlement (OTS) scheme for
 the National lok Adalat/Bank Adalat to settle NPA accounts has been
 used diligently.
 SMSES are being sent to borrowers: (i) Seven days before EMI due date,
 (ii) One day before EMI due date, and (iii) After EMI due date.
 The scope of Bank''s Contact Centre at Baroda and tele calling centre at
 SBI Cards/GE, Gurgaon has been expanded to encompass soft recovery
 follow-ups of all P-Segment loans.
 A tie-up has been made with Shriram Auto mall India limited (SAMIL) to
 assist operating functionaries in seizure and auction of vehicles.
 Use of loan Origination Software (LOS) has been made mandatory for Auto
 loans and Personal loans (except loan against Time Deposits, P-Segment
 Gold loans and Education loans) and its integration with the Risk
 Scoring Model (RSM) and CIBIL check to take care of many process
 related risks.
 Asset Quality Improvement measures for Agriculture
 As far as agriculture loans were concerned, Various One-Time Settlement
 Scheme (OTS) schemes like ''OTS Scheme for Tractor loan'', ''OTS Scheme
 for ATl'' were rolled out for quick resolution of hardcore NPAs in Agri
 term loans. These schemes resulted in a recovery of Rs.378 crores during
 FY 2013-14.
 Campaigns launched: ''KCC (Zero NPA) Campaign'' was launched to drive
 renewal of overdue KCCs with the objective of arresting NPAs accretion
 and reduction.  Over 16.57 lakhs KCCs in the likely stressed category
 were renewed. kitna Baki Hai campaign was launched during December 2013
 to drive daily monitoring of KCC renewal position through SMS based
 reporting to reach KBN (kuchi Baki Nahi).
 Green Power represents an innovative scheme to improve loan recovery
 culture among farmers by rewarding the villages with solar street
 lights under corporate social responsibility.
 Asset Quality Improvement measures for Corporate accounts
 The asset quality of CAG remained well under control with the gross
 NPAs at 0.99% of total advances. About 87% of CAG''s portfolio is
 investment grade with 40% carrying the highest rating from the external
 rating agencies.
 Mid corporate segment has been more severely affected by the economic
 downturn, leading to deterioration in asset quality. The Non Performing
 Assets (NPAs) of MCG have increased from Rs.18,443 crores in March 2013
 to Rs.32,715 crores in March 2014. To tackle this issue, the Group has
 strengthened the processes of appraisal/sanction, follow-up and
 supervision. Every effort is made to improve the asset quality through
 regular engagement with promoters of weak/ stressed accounts.
 The Bank has formed Various committees headed by Chairman/ Managing
 Directors/ Deputy Managing Directors/ Chief General Managers/ General
 Managers/ Deputy General Managers to periodically review stressed
 assets and suggest resolution strategies.
 SAMG has brought in substantial recoveries in high value NPAs and some
 decades-old dues during FY 2013-14 due to its specialised attention and
 concerted efforts. Despite a harsh environment last year, we achieved a
 deceleration in NPA accretion due to SAMG''s relentless efforts along
 with the support of SAMBs/ SARBs/ SARCs.
 This was particularly evident during Q4 of FY 2013-14 when Gross and
 Net NPA percentages were brought down by 78 basis points and 67 basis
 points respectively from the peak levels of 5.73% and 3.24% witnessed
 during the year.  More details are furnished below:

 the asset quality challenges of FY 2014- 15 when near-term pressure is
 expected to continue. We are in the process of establishing an Early

 accounts so that we can take in advance corrective action, including
 timely restructuring in deserving cases. This would prevent slippages
 and maintain good asset quality.

 Improvement in Employee Productivity
 The large-scale recruitment of Gen-next employees in the Officers as
