IndusInd Bank slips in volatile trade

Mumbai: IndusInd Bank on Thursday posted a mixed set of numbers when the private sector lender reported December quarter net profit in line with expectations but witnessed a marginal rise in bad loans.

However, IndusInd Bank witnessed a small rise in the gross NPA ratio, which went up to 1.16 per cent from 0.94 per cent in the same quarter past year due to reverses in loans against property, commercial loans and corporate loans.
