There was a marginal rise in bad loans, with gross non-performing assets (NPAs) rising to 0.81 per cent, or Rs 2,341 crore in absolute terms, from 0.72 per cent in the year-ago period. HDFC vice-chairman and chief executive officer Keki Mistry said the numbers are higher because the lender has not taken into consideration the 90-day grace period the regulators have given to borrowers for repayment as well as the grace period given to lenders after demonetisation.

There was a marginal uptick in NPAs from individual portfolio also, which constitutes over 70 per cent of the loan book, to 0.65 per cent, while that of the non -individual portfolio read 1.16 per cent.
