"Exposure stressed pool of around Rs 10,000 crore is expected to keep provisions higher at around Rs 1,208 crore (credit cost of 48 bps) compared to the earlier run rate that is expected to keep the pressure on earnings. Hence, PAT is expected to fall 85 percent YoY to Rs 188 crore," ICICI Direct said.
Prabhudas Lilladher also expects 84 percent decline in profitability. It said the bank could continue to face a challenging quarter due to rising NPAs.
"Most business metrics should slow down as capital remains at critical levels. Increase in stress ratios could add to the uncertainty of earnings," it added.

Prabhudas Lilladher expects PPoP to fall 34 percent and Kotak sees the same declining 45 percent YoY.Pressure on asset quality is expected to persist due to continuance in recognition of stressed assets, hence GNPA ratio is expected to increase around 67 bps to 3.89 percent, ICICI Direct said.The Great Diwali Discount!
