Acceleration in credit growth to 14.7% and deposit growth to 8.9%
* System loan growth for the fortnight ended 23rd Nov’18 improved to 14.7% (v/s 14.5% in the previous fortnight). The outstanding credit base, thus, increased by INR207b to INR91.3t. This growth was majorly contributed by retail housing (18% YoY) and credit cards (31% YoY), while growth was subdued in agriculture (8% YoY) and industry (~4% YoY).
* Deposit growth accelerated to 8.9% (v/s 8.6% in the previous fortnight). Outstanding deposit base, thus, decreased to INR118.1t (v/s INR118.2t in the previous fortnight), resulting in a higher systemic credit deposit ratio of 77.3% (v/s 77.0% in the previous fortnight). Incremental LD ratio for the system is showing an uptrend over the past five months (Exhibit 5).
* Systemic SLR ratio declined to 27% as on 23rd Nov’18 (v/s 29% a year ago), indicating a pick-up in credit growth. Further relaxing of SLR requirement by the RBI in its recent MPC meeting will support loan growth, especially in a scenario where deposit growth is lagging loan growth.
