Why Should you Invest in this Portfolio...

Asset Quality is Improving with Gross-Non Performing Assets Trending Downwards

Gross Non-Performing Assets (GNPA) had peaked in FY18 at 11.2% for scheduled commercial banks. Since then, asset quality at banks is improving. Despite the pandemic, GNPA has trended lower to 7.3% in FY21 and further to 6.9% at end of September 2021.

Improving asset quality implies lower provisioning and higher profitability for the banks. This will keep profitability of banks in good stead going forward.
