  • HDFC Bank's profit is up by 20% this quarter.
  • The bank's asset quality seems to have taken a hit as ratio of bad loans increase.
  • HDFC Bank's net interest income is also up by 17.8% on a yearly basis.
A 20% jump in HDFC Bank’s quarterly profit compared to a year earlier is good news but the lack of details on the loans under moratorium may raise eyebrows. This at a time when the amount of bad loans has risen, as expected.
