Operational miss was from lower income from yield pressure despite better than expected AUM growth of ~18% YoY and on higher opex due to one-off expenses. Management remains optimistic on improving rural cash flow and improving infra activity which should lead to growth of 18-20% in FY19 across segments and will lower provisioning requirement. Rural recovery should agur well for growth and recovery from NPAs can bring tailwind to earnings helping deliver ROA of 2.6-2.8% by FY20.
