State Bank of India (SBI), the largest bank in India, announced a robust 24 percent increase in its net profit for the quarter ending on March 31, 2024, reaching Rs 20,698 crore, bolstered by a surge in loan demand. This marks a significant rise from the net profit of Rs 16,695 crore recorded in the same quarter of the previous year.

The stock was trading at Rs 822.40, up Rs 11.60 or 1.43 percent on NSE.

Furthermore, SBI declared a dividend of Rs 13.70 per share for the financial year 2023-24.

The bank’s asset quality showed notable improvement during the March quarter. The gross non-performing asset (GNPA) ratio decreased to 2.24 percent from 2.78 percent year-on-year, while the net NPA ratio declined to 0.57 percent from 0.67 percent in the previous year.

SBI’s loan portfolio exhibited robust growth in the March quarter, marking one of the strongest performances in over eight quarters. Additionally, the bank achieved a remarkable 36-quarter low in the ratio between gross and net NPAs, reflecting effective management of its loan portfolio.
