There was impairment on the asset quality with the gross non-performing assets (NPAs or bad loans) spiking to 4.27 per cent of the gross advances by end of Q2 FY22, as against 1.62 per cent by the end of the same period in FY’21.

The order relates to the pandemic driven stress to customers last year.
