"The bank is sufficiently covered on NCLT exposure and expect resolution to be around Rs 3500 to 3600 crore," Rai said in an interview with CNBC-TV18 on Monday.
He said the bank has a credit growth target of 7-8 percent. "The low number on book is because of shrinkage in overseas book but the domestic credit book has grown by 12.5 percent," said Rai.
