Abstract

The banks have sought to counter the mounting pressure on spreads by raising their PLRs. The rise in interest rates has resulted in a slowdown in credit growth in the banking sector. This is also likely to put pressure on the banking sectors earning profile and Net Profitability Margin (NPM). The rising interest rate scenario also has the potential to create significant pressure on the asset quality of banks.
