In line with previous trends, the BB and below-rated book (~2.6% of advances) contributed as much as 92% of corporate slippages. Retail slippages (Rs 15bn) rose ~35/84%. After spiking in 4QFY19, write-offs were ~9/68% lower at ~Rs 24bn. GNPAs dipped ~14/1% to ~Rs 458bn (~6.5%). We expect incremental stress to moderate as the pool of low rated corporate exposures shrinks. This underpins our constructive stance. Our estimates factor annual slippage of 1.9% over FY20-21E.

BB & Below book also continues to decline (reduction of 12% QoQ) and forms 2.6% of the net advances. However, there have been concerns on rising slippages on agriculture portfolio for the industry as a whole. Specific PCR improved to 74% as credit cost remained elevated due to aging-related provisions and lack of any significant resolution on NPA front. However, management holds its guidance of credit cost for the full year. Operating performance is on improving path with the pickup in advances growth and normalization of margin.
