Directors’ Report

The Bank’s Board of Directors is pleased to present the Report on its business and operations for the financial year ended March 31, 2018.

India’s economic milieu in the financial year 2017-18 was characterized by conducive policy environment which aided in strengthening its macroeconomic fundamentals. Banking industry, especially in an economy like India, is a critical enabler for ensuring sustainable economic growth. Growth in the Indian economy is, inter alia, contingent upon widening and deepening of the banking penetration, and this, in turn, requires a more robust public sector banking framework, considering their dominance. However, the year proved to be a difficult one for the banking sector due to various factors. The performance of your Bank can be considered reasonable given this difficult banking sector environment.

As on March 31, 2018, the Capital to Risk-weighted Assets Ratio (CRAR) of your Bank was 10.41% as against the minimum regulatory requirement of 10.875%. Your Bank’s “Common Equity Tier 1 (CET 1) Capital Conservation Buffer (CCB) ratio” was 7.42% as against the minimum applicable ratio of 7.375% stipulated by the RBI. The “Tier 1 Capital Conservation buffer (CCB) ratio” stood at 7.73% as on March 31, 2018 against the regulatory requirement of 8.875%. Basel guidelines have introduced a mandatory Capital Conservation Buffer (CCB) with effect from March 31, 2016.

In line with the transitional arrangements of the regulatory guidelines, the CCB applicable for March 31, 2018 is 1.875%. Accordingly, the minimum regulatory requirement of “Total Capital CCB” is 10.875% as on March 31, 2018. Your Bank has a Board-approved policy on Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) in line with the Pillar 2 norms of the Basel III framework, which enables the Bank to internally assess and quantify those risks which are not covered under Pillar 1 as well as develop appropriate strategies to manage risks under normal and stress conditions. Your Bank has adopted a Disclosure Policy in accordance with the Pillar 3 requirements under the Basel norms and accordingly, publishes disclosures on the Bank’s website at the end of each quarter.

Business Strategy

During the year, the Bank launched Project Nishchay to drive its strategic transformation through focused interventions in four major areas, viz. (i) Asset Utilization, (ii) Revenue Maximization, (iii) Operating Cost Rationalization, and (iv) Manpower Planning.

As a part of its comprehensive turnaround strategy, your Bank has been working towards realignment of its business mix in favour of retail and priority sector lending business while limiting growth in its corporate loan book, especially in large corporate segment. This strategy has been adopted in pursuance with a capital light business model as it would facilitate the Bank to reduce its Risk Weighted Assets (RWAs) as also help in improving the quality of the balance sheet. With a view to optimizing its capital, your Bank has significantly reduced the RWAs by 18% during FY 2017-18 by reducing exposure to low-rated corporate clients, ensuring incremental exposure in regulatory retail portfolio, enhancing cash security margin wherever feasible, data cleaning, etc. Simultaneously, the Bank has adopted a comprehensive action plan and road map for reduction of Non-Performing Assets (NPAs), which involves strengthening the overall structure, defining clear-cut policy guidelines, emphasizing on timely data availability/ analysis-based activity monitoring and structured review, case-specific strategy-based recovery action for large value accounts and persistent, timely, action-based approach to retail accounts. This will aid in further reduction in the capital requirement of the Bank going forward. The Bank has also embarked on divestment of its non-core assets, including sale of its stakes in certain associates and Joint Ventures and sale of its residential and commercial properties which were not being optimally utilized, to augment its capital base.

Your Bank has also taken several measures to augment its revenue streams by enhancing retail asset growth, improving retail liabilities and enhancing fee income. In alignment with this objective, the Bank has been proactively enhancing its capabilities in terms of improved customer service, field sales excellence and analytics driven sales.

As a corollary to revenue maximization for boosting its bottom-line, your Bank has been working towards rationalization of its operating costs. The Bank has identified a number of areas with significant potential for higher efficiency such as overheads expenses, rent reduction, ATM rationalization, streamlining of IT processes and reduction of outsourcing expenses.

To support this overarching strategy, your Bank has ensured that the retail business segment and credit monitoring and recovery teams are adequately staffed. Furthermore, measures are being taken to revamp the governance in your Bank. Additionally, the Bank has been leveraging its core strengths, that is, strong brand equity, efficient retail operations, excellent customer service, robust IT platform, among others, to achieve its business objectives.

During the year, the Government recapitalized Public Sector Banks (PSBs), including your Bank. Your Bank has furnished a Board-approved undertaking to the Government whereby it will meet certain milestones in a defined timeframe, for which necessary steps are being taken.

The infusion of capital by the Government is contingent upon performance of PSBs on the reform agenda. All PSBs, including your Bank, are striving towards aligning their business strategy to become more responsive and responsible banks.

Underlying its strategic initiatives, your Bank continues to remain committed towards its customers with a number of customer-centric initiatives. The Bank is also committed to the PSB Reforms Agenda aimed at Enhanced Access and Service Excellence (EASE) unveiled by the Government during the year and is taking the necessary steps towards its implementation. The EASE framework centres around six themes, viz. (i) Customer Responsiveness, (ii) Responsible Banking, (iii) Credit Off-Take, (iv) PSBs as Udyami Mitra, (v) Deepening Financial Inclusion & Digitalization and (vi) Ensuring Outcomes - HR. Your Bank has ensured that these themes are central to the various initiatives being taken by it and the progress on these fronts is monitored and evaluated on a regular basis.
