We could post improvement in all key metrics: NIM, Cost Income Ratio, RoA, RoE, Gross NPA, Net NPA, PCR, CRAR. We have now set our own benchmarks to be exceeded next quarter. While the asset growth so far has been contributed mostly by gold loan growth, we are committed to diversify the asset base and product suite. New Retail banking team headed by Mr. Praloy is working on the products and processes for these segments and also on the strategies on customer acquisition on a larger scale. These will be in place this quarter end and we will focus on quantum and quality growth in the coming days.”
