Our view
Operating expenses will remain stable in the long run as Cost to income ratio is expected to continue declining. The bank has continued to be watchful over costs, keeping the cost to income ratio low. With the increasing appetite for credit, we expect NIC bank to grow its loan book more aggressively, with asset financing driving the growth.

We expect a recovery in the net interest margin, driven by both volumes and spreads. Prudent credit management by NIC bank will continue to drive down the non-performing loans, thereby widening the bottom line.
