  • Rikin Shah from Credit Suisse asked about retail disbursements falling 4% QoQ. Kapish Jain CFO said that the fresh retail disbursal for Q3 was INR7,217 crore, registering a growth of 18% YoY. The company added that due to the lower rates offered by the PSUs and some of the larger players, PNBHOUSING did have an impact in its business.

On the outlook, company will continue to maintain an adequate provision policy.
  • Rikin Shah from Credit Suisse asked another question about NPA and whether there is any soft requirement to bring the net NPA below 4% for PNBHOUSING as that has been the case with some other NBFCs. Kapish Jain CFO answered that regulations are currently not applicable to HFCs. They are more for NBFCs currently. So, there is no soft regulation and would like to keep it at around 4% or lesser than that.
  • Kunal Shah of ICICI Securities enquired about the INR829 crore NPA, if it’s largely retail or if there is corporate also that is getting classified. Hardayal Prasad, CEO said that it’s all retail and there is no impact on the corporate.

The CEO added that there is a mechanism in place for checks.
  • Sharaj Singh from Laburnum Capital also asked about other areas of focus than Unnati to grow the entire book of the company.

  • Shubhranshu Mishra of Systematix Group  asked about the salaried employee split on the AUM mix, in terms of PSU, government etc. Hardayal Prasad, CEO replied that in retail, the salaried largely is 60% Cat A profiles, comprising of government employees and other established companies.
