One can prefer private sector banks, says Dhiraj Agarwal, Standard Chartered Securities.

Agarwal told CNBC-TV18, "Relatively speaking private banks should be a safer place within the banking sector. It is a  huge weight in the index, so investors cannot fully ignore it, especially the institutional side and with the Non-Performing  Loan (NPL) pressures showing no signs of abating the banking sector allocation part of the institutional money will  continue to prefer private banks more as compared to the PSU banks, so relative outperformance can continue. We  have seen some correction which should be a good opportunity to enter."
