Vijaya Bank Q2 net profit drops 20 per cent

Bengaluru: Vijaya Bank reported 19.79 per cent decline in net profit at Rs 115.29 crore for the second quarter ended September 30, 2015, due to higher provisioning. The bank had reported net profit of Rs 143.75 crore in the corresponding quarter last year.
      Vijaya Bank Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kishore Kumar Sansi said, “The decline in net profit is attributed to increased provisioning. This quarter we have taken a provisioning of Rs 283 crore, of which Rs 272 crore is on account of NPAs.”
    “Fresh slippages for this quarter is around Rs 600 crore. Most of them have come from infrastructure and large corporates. This quarter, NPAs are at their highest ever, and we have tried to be more transparent. Wherever we were a little doubtful, we have classified those loans as NPAs,” Sansi added.
