Private sector lender Yes Bank has reported a profit of around Rs 150 crore this quarter. Yes Bank MD and CEO Prashant Kumar spoke to Zee Business Managing Editor Anil Singhvi today and revealed reasons behind this good show by the bank.
Talking about the triggers that led to good result posted by Yes Bank, Prashant Kumar said, "There are three reasons behind this performance by Yes Bank. One recovery in old NPA amount, second disbursal of loan to retail, MSMEs and corporate sector and third is addition of retail customers in our CASA account."

Prashant Kumar said Yes Bank is targeting to open at least 1 lakh new accounts every month. "Out of this, we have achieved the figure of 85,000 in December and over all 2,25,000 new saving and current accounts have been opened by the bank in this quarter. This way our retail deposit base is continuously increasing, we have registered a growth of 39% in the same. Similarly, Yes Bank CASA percentage has also improved from before. So this is our 3-point plan of action—to increase our depositor base, disburse new loan and focus more on recovery," he said.

Yes Bank focus will continue to be more in retail and MSME, he added.
Talking about new Yes Bank NPA, Kumar said that most of those assets are Covid-19-impacted and there won't be much problem in their recovery. These are not actually NPA, but with economy recovering, it won't be a problem to bring them in standard category.
About Yes Bank board's approval to raise Rs 10,000 crore, Prashant Kumar said, "We do have need to raise funds and our bank is fully captialised. These processes usually consume a lot of time. So, we want to keep the process ready in case we need the fund in future."
