Bandhan Bank on Friday said its June quarter net profit more than doubled to Rs 886.5 crore in April-June 2022-23 aided by decline in bad loans.
The Kolkata-headquartered private sector lender had logged a net profit of Rs 373.1 crore in the year-ago period.
Total income increased to Rs 2,844.1 crore from Rs 2,731 crore. Interest income of the lender jumped to Rs 2,514.4 crore from Rs 2,114.1 crore, Bandhan Bank said in a regulatory filing.

Net NPA too declined to 1.92 per cent from 3.29 per cent in the same quarter a year ago.
