Bank of India on Monday reported over a five-fold increase in its consolidated net profit for the April-June quarter at Rs 845.78 crore.

Total income of the bank during the period under review increased to Rs 12,022.48 crore from Rs 11,613.21 crore reported a year ago, Bank of India said in a regulatory filing.
The percentage of gross NPA of the banks declined to 13.86 percent during the quarter ended June of FY2020-21, from 16.44 percent in the same quarter last of last fiscal.
The filing said that Covid-19 continues to spread across many countries and in India and the same has resulted in significant volatility and decline in the global and local economic activities.
The situation continues to be uncertain and the bank is evaluating the situation on an ongoing basis. The major challenge for the bank would arise from volatility in cash flows, Bank of India said.
“Despite these events and conditions, there would not be any significant impact on banks’ results in future and on the going concern assumption,” it said.
In the current quarter ended June 30, 2020, as a matter of prudence the bank has made a provision of Rs 620.30 crore in SMA (special mention accounts) accounts wherein moratorium due to Covid-19 pandemic was extended.
