It was just another disappointing quarter for largest lender State Bank of India (SBI), as it posted a net loss of Rs 7,718.17 crore in Q4FY18 compared to net loss of Rs 3,442 crore in the corresponding period of previous year. Q4FY18 net loss widened compared loss of Rs 2,416.37 crore in the preceding quarter.
According to SBI the loss was attributed to three factors - lower Trading Income and significant MTM losses due to hardening of bond yields, incremental Provision during the quarter for NPAs and higher provisioning on account of Wage Revision and enhancement in Gratuity ceiling.
