Provisions and contingencies at the end of June 2021 quarter stood at Rs 48.3 bn. The bank’s asset quality improved during the quarter as gross non-performing assets (NPAs) came in lower at 1.35% of gross advances compared to 1.47% in the June 2021 quarter and 1.37% in the year-ago quarter.

Excluding NPAs in the agriculture segment, NPAs for the September quarter came in at 1.2%.

We will keep you posted on more updates from this space. Stay tuned.

Note that, HDFC Bank is one that has always adapted to changing times.

HDFC Bank wanted to transform itself from a leader in the physical banking to a leader in online banking. Since then, HDFC Bank has constantly focused on going digital.

In 2004, only 10% of customer transactions were initiated through internet and mobile. The number has gone up to 92% in 2019.

It is a great example of a company which has taken advantage of its scale and embraced disruption rather than fear it.

These are traits that one should look for in picking stocks. They not only withstand the disruption but also gain from it in the long-run.
