Strong performance of Indian Banks to continue
S&P Global Ratings on Thursday said Indian banking sector profitability will stabilise at a healthy level, and asset quality will continue to improve. “Indian banks’ earnings will likely remain healthy. The sector has improved substantially in the past seven years, from a period when many public-sector lenders were grappling with bad loans,” S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Deepali Seth Chhabria said.

A strong recovery is underway in the Indian banking sector, and lenders have just reported their best results in a decade, S&P Global Ratings said. It expects the sector profitability to stabilise at a healthy level, and that banks’ asset quality will continue to improve.
 
Indian banking profitability is benefiting from higher net interest margins and lower credit costs.
 
We estimate a system-wide return on average assets (ROAA) at 1.2 per cent for fiscal 2023 (year ending March 31, 2023). System-wide ROAA will likely hover around 1.1 per cent in fiscal 2024.
 
“The formation of new non-performing loans will remain at cyclical low levels, despite pressure from higher interest rates,” S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Geeta Chugh said.
