Bank credit growth increases 14.5%, deposits up 9.63%

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in its latest report has showed that bank credit growth increased by 14.5 percent at Rs 94.29 lakh crore, while deposits grew at a tepid 9.63 percent to Rs 121.22 lakh crore for the fortnight ending February 1. Though, both credit and deposits growth of bank declined marginally on a fortnightly basis.

In the previous fortnight ended January 18, credit had increased by 14.61 percent to Rs 93.32 lakh crore and deposits grew by 9.69 percent to Rs 119.86 lakh crore. The decline was mainly driven by the poor show by agriculture and allied activities and the personal loans during the week.

While credit demand from agriculture and allied activities grew by 8.4 percent in December 2018, compared to an increase of 9.5 percent in December 2017, industrial credit rose by 4.4 percent in December 2018 over 2.1 percent in the year-ago month.

Similarly non-food credit also increased faster at 12.8 percent year-on-year basis in December 2018 compared to a 10 percent growth in the same month last year. In the reporting month, credit to the services sector almost doubled to 23.2 percent as against 14.7 percent year- ago period but personal loans growth decelerated to 17 percent from 18.9 percent.
