Personal, credit card, two-wheeler and business lending performed strongly.
HDFC loans rose 22% YoY in Q1 to smash the banking sector’s average lending which clocked in at 12.4%, according to Maybank Kim Eng.
The lending surge can be attributed to strong performance in high-yielding loan segments including two-wheeler, credit card, personal and commercial vehicle loans.
“We forecast a 20% loan CAGR for FY19-21E,” Maybank Kim Eng said in a report.
Gross bad loans were also flat at 1.3%, even though some stress was detected in its agriculture loans with gross slippages rising from 1.7% last quarter to 2%. “Our credit- cost forecast is 85bps for FY19-21E,” the firm added.
