The banks further shored up its contingent provisions by Rs 6 billion to ~Rs 66 billion (~0.6% of loans), though this dragged net earnings growth to 16% YoY – the lowest in the past many years.

HDFC Bank's advances growth stood at 14% YoY, led by healthy trends in the commercial and rural banking portfolio, while retail growth was muted due to a sharp (7% QoQ) decline in the credit cards portfolio, which was affected by Reserve Bank of India’s restriction on sourcing of new credit cards and lower revolving balances.
