SBI posts Rs 24.16 billion quarterly loss for first time in nearly 19 years
10 February 2018 Current Affairs: State Bank of India (SBI), the country’s largest bank, posted a quarterly loss for the first time in nearly 19 years - of Rs 24.16 billion in the December quarter of 2017-18 - owing to a sizeable increase in provisioning for bad loans.

This came after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) asked the lender to reclassify some corporate loans as non-performing assets (NPAs).

The bank had reported a standalone profit of Rs. 2,610 crore in the corresponding quarter last fiscal.

SBI is planning to raise about Rs 200 billion in the next financial year (2018-19) to support credit growth.
