Last fiscal, public sector banks increased their share to 73%. But when competition for credit picked up this year, public banks’ lending to small segments dropped to 19.1%.

Many private banks had cut their exposure to small businesses when the pandemic broke out. But with government guarantees coming in and stress turning out to be less than expected, they sharply increased their market share.

Look at the NPA levels which are currently at 5-year lows, but are still a substantial 6% of the overall loan book.

For now, higher lending rates have offered a bigger margin to banks. Lending rates have gone up but deposit rates are yet to catch up.
