Worst In Terms Of Bad Loans Is Over, Says M&M Financial Services

Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services Ltd. said the worst in terms of non-performing assets is over for the company.

“The NPAs have almost remained at the levels registered during the three months ended March,” Managing Director Ramesh Iyer told BloombergQuint in an interaction. “During the first quarter, NPAs jumped about 2-3 percent. If that is being well controlled, I think we have every reason to believe that we are on the correction path and that the worst is over for us.”
