The non-performing assets of the banking sector rose sharply to 1.28 per cent in 2011-12 from 0.97 per cent a year ago due to high interest rate and slowdown in the economy.
The NPAs (non-perfomring assets) or bad loans of the public sector banks rose to 1.53 per cent in 2011-12, up from 1.09 per cent in the previous year, said the latest RBI report.
As per the Profile of Banks: 2011-12 released by the RBI, the NPA for India's largest public sector lender SBI alongwith its associates rose to 1.76 per cent from 1.49 per cent in 2010-11.

However, private sector banks managed to reduce their NPAs in 2011-12 to 0.46 per cent from 0.56 per cent in 2010-11, it said.
Non-performing assets of old private sector banks increased marginally to 0.58 per cent during the year from 0.53 per cent in the previous fiscal.
