Axis Bank posted a healthy operational performance led by 11 bps improvement in margins & higher traction in fee income. NII came in at healthy ~21% YoY to Rs 5706 crore while operating profit exceeded our estimates due to higher other income (Rs 3526 crore, up 26.5% YoY) boosted by retail & transaction banking. Lower slippages & higher reduction led to moderation in provisions. Accordingly, PAT came in at Rs 1506 crore.
