The newly appointed chief of the largest lender of the country, State Bank of India, Pratip Chaudhuri has planned out the agenda of operations to be taken by the bank under his guidance. He has said that he would act strongly towards bringing down the NPA level of the bank.
“We will consolidate the gains made during the tenure of Mr Bhatt. Now that we have been catapulted to the leadership position, we would like to consolidate the operations. Deposit taking would remain as important. Technology would be high priority and international operations will continue expansion. We would also bring down non-performing assets (NPAs) to appropriate levels,” Chaudhuri said.
"We need to take corrective measures to boost topline growth," he said.
