Net profit for Q3FY17 for Bank of Baroda stood at INR 2.53 bn increased by 108% on Y-o-Y basis (on a lower base) on the back of stupendous surge in noninterest income (60% on Y-o-Y basis) and lower provisions. Net interest income for the quarter increased by 16% on Y-o-Y basis on the back of lower interest expense for the quarter gone by. The controlled operating expense led Cost to income ratio to improve substantially.
While the total slippages stood elevated on Q-o-Q basis, total reductions stood positive, largely due to the write offs; total gross NPA stood stable on Q-o-Q basis.
