Vishwavir Ahuja, managing director and CEO of RBL Bank, is confident of the lender's growth momentum and robust asset quality. In an interview with CNBC-TV18, he said that the management continues to maintain the guidance of 30-35 percent growth going forward.

RBL Bank reported a good set of numbers on Thursday with net interest margins at an all-time high.

"The guidance up to one year forward is already in place and at this stage, it is sufficient to say that we are going to stay with our guidance which is 30-35 percent growth even going forward into the next year," said Ahuja.

“All other parameters to stack up according to that growth and to the kind of guidance we have given, which is improved financial metrics, improved ratios, improved current account savings account (CASA), improved return on assets (RoA), improved return on equity (RoE),” he added

In terms of a breakdown on the wholesale side, he said the larger corporate side performed at a faster growth than the SME, mid-corporate.

“The bank has acquired a greater level of credibility with the large corporates. Our ability to deal with them on a scale and on a wider range of products and services has increased tremendously," he said.
