For the full year, its profit after tax jumped 36.5% to 1,952.21 crore from 1,429.21 crore in FY18 due to increased portfolio and reducing cost to income ratio.
Net interest margin went down by 47 basis points to 1.89 per cent as on March 2019 from 2.36% as on March 2018 due to focus on low risk assets and increased cost of funding.
