What Does It Mean For The Investor?
Yes Bank made a recovery and posted the highest net profit of Rs 207 crore in Q1 FY2022. The recovery comes from a loss of Rs 3,788 crore in the last quarter. The bank took measures by reducing its provisions and increasing its non-interest income to bring about this U-turn in revenue. While market analysts expected the bank to post a loss, the bank has surpassed the expectations. This shows that the bank’s management may see some growth in future.
