Motilal Oswal said, "SBI reported a robust performance as it bravely fought off the Covid-19 impact and displayed remarkable resilience in asset quality performance. The bank has been reporting continued traction in earnings, led by controlled provisions. However, business trends remain modest, impacted by continued deleveraging by corporates. We expect the slippage trajectory to moderate further (assuming there is no third COVID wave), while credit cost may undershoot the normal cyclical trends, though we are conservatively keeping credit cost at 1-1.1%." Additionally, the bank created a family pension provision of Rs. 74.2b, instead of amortizing it over five years.
