Kotak Mahindra Bank’s Q1 profit falls 26%

Kotak Mahindra Bank’s net profit slipped 25.8% at Rs 516.57 Crores for first quarter ended June 2015 owing to higher provisioning for bad loans. The bank had reported a profit of Rs 696.70 Crores in the April-June quarter of the last fiscal.

Kotak's total revenue has increased to Rs 6,384.63 Crores in the April-June quarter from Rs 5,006.63 Crores in the same period of last fiscal. Kotak Mahindra Bank shares closed 1.36 per cent down at Rs 716.15 per unit on the BSE.
