    There was marginal rise in bank's gross non-performing assets at 3.44 percent (Rs 1,220.58 crore) of the gross advances at the end of September 2020 from 3.41 percent (Rs 1,135.44 crore) by the end of September 2019.
    However, net NPAs --as a percentage of net advances-- improved to 1.81 percent (Rs 631.44 crore) from 1.90 percent (Rs 624.08 crore).
    The bank's provisions for bad loans and contingencies were raised to Rs 177 crore for the reported quarter from Rs 107.95 crore in the year-ago quarter.
    "During the quarter, the bank has made an additional provision of Rs 115 crore including an interest reversal of Rs 25 crore to meet any future contingency arising out of COVID pandemic and the total provision held by the bank as on September 30, 2020 is Rs 330 crore which is over and above the RBI requirement," the lender said in the filing.
    Further, citing the RBI circular and Finance Ministry directive in late October, the lender said it is processing the scheme for grant of ex-gratia payments for borrowers for the period from 1st March till 31st August 2020 for eligible accounts.
    "As per the circular, the payments have to be credited to the borrowers accounts on or before 5th November and claim for reimbursement is to be made on or before 15th December 2020. The bank is in the process of doing the needful," City Union Bank said.

"In absence of any direction from Reserve Bank of India or any other authority, interest in interest (compound interest) during moratorium period is continued to be recognised as income on the basis of Income Recognition norms of RBI. However the matter is sub-judice," it added.

The bank is in receipt of the amount in line with the agreement," it said. The provision coverage ratio stood at 70 percent as on September 30, 2020, the bank said.
