According to Yes Securities, "Overall retail loan growth (including rural loans) was 5.8% QoQ. Specifically, for credit cards, while the revolving rate is still lower than pre-pandemic levels, there has been a gradual improvement. Credit card dues grew 9.9% QoQ whereas personal loans grew 10.4% QoQ. In SME and business banking, the growth has not been driven by ticket size change but by enhancement of coverage. SME and business banking growth has been 11.3% QoQ and 10.2% QoQ, respectively. The impact from income tax refund amounted to 1 bp in 4QFY22, 6 bps in 3QFY22, and 1 bp in 4QFY21."
