In an interview with CNBC-TV18, Ravindra P Marathe, MD & CEO of Bank of Maharashtra spoke about the latest happenings in the bank and sector.

We have targeted a credit growth of around 10 percent year-on-year (YoY) for FY17 but as of now it is negative by 8 percent, so as such we are not in need of that much capital, he said.

Will look to improve recovery of stressed assets, he added.
