The brokerage house said Kotak Bank is likely to be worst impacted from the private bank lot, given conservative approach in lending and high slippages than usual, similar to the last two quarters.
The firm expects a muted loan growth of 7.2 per cent YoY. We factor in margin contraction of 18 bps sequentially, leading to NII growth of 0.2 per cent YoY. We expect a 2.8 per cent YoY decline in PPoP. We factor in slippages of Rs 1,000 crore compared with Rs 1,500 crore in the June quarter.
The firm sees profit falling 3.2 per cent YoY at Rs 2,184.50 crore.
