Marginal pressure on banks next fiscal, net interest margin may fall: Fitch

an hour ago  
Business / Business Standard/ Latest News  
Banks will face margin pressure next fiscal as they increase the deposit rates to attract funds to support sustained high loan growth, and the same will fall by 10 basis points to 3.45 per cent, a global rating agency said on Monday. "We expect the domestic banking sector's average net interest margin to slightly contract by about 10 bps (basis points) in FY24 to 3.45 per cent, following a 15 bps increase in FY23 to 3.55 per cent, in a base case scenario, but remain well above that during FY17-FY22 average of 3.1 per cent," Fitch Ratings said in a report. However, the 10 bps likely reduction in margin is unlikely to affect banks' profitability in the near term. Higher fee income -- stemming from higher loan growth -- and a revival in treasury gains should broadly counterbalance the twin pressures of higher credit costs and funding costs in FY24, while supporting capitalisation. This contraction is consistent with the lagged normalisation in deposit rates, although banks should be ab..

Russia on Monday accused the US of "actively" exploiting the "contradictions" between India and China to its advantage and asserted Moscow and New Delhi accumulated mutual trust and confidence based on decades-old ties that would help the two sides to deal with the current geopolitical turbulence. In his address at a conference, Russian Ambassador to India Denis Alipov, at the same time, said that the India-Russia ties are "under stress" because of the tectonic geo-political shifts in view of the "arrogant" and "belligerent" approach by the US-led West on the Ukraine conflict. The envoy said Moscow wants to expand its economic engagement with Islamabad as a "weak" Pakistan is not good for the entire region including India. In a tweet later, he clarified that he meant a "destabilised" Pakistan is not in the interest of anyone in the region.
