HDFC Bank share price fell in the early trade on May 31 after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) imposed a penalty of Rs 10 crore on the private lender for deficiency in "regulatory compliance".

"We wish to inform you that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has imposed, by an order dated May 27, 2021, a monetary penalty of Rs 10 crore on HDFC Bank," the company said in its release.

This action is based on deficiencies in regulatory compliance and is not intended to pronounce upon the validity of any transaction or agreement entered into by the bank with its customers, the RBI said.

The penalty has been imposed in exercise of powers vested in RBI under the provisions of Section 47A(1)(c) read with Section 46(4)(i) of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 (Act), for marketing/sale of third party non-financial products in contravention of provisions of Section 6(2) and Section 8 of the Act.

The country's largest private sector lender reported an 18.2 percent year-on-year (YoY) growth in its standalone profit at Rs 8,186.5 crore for the quarter ended March 2021 (Q4FY21). The profit in Q4FY20 stood at Rs 6,927.69 crore.


Net interest income (NII), the difference between interest earned and interest expended, grew 12.6 percent to Rs 17,120.15 crore in Q4FY21 compared to Rs 15,204.06 crore in the year-ago period.

At 0922 hours, HDFC Bank was quoting at Rs 1,497.15, down Rs 4, or 0.27 percent, on the BSE.

The share touched a 52-week high of Rs 1,650 on February 24, 2021 and a 52-week low of Rs 848.90 on May 26, 2020.

It is trading 9.26 percent below its 52-week high and 76.36 percent above its 52-week low.
