Jaikishan Parmar, Sr. Equity Research Analyst at Angel Broking said, "HDFC Bank has surprised the street by its advance growth numbers. Bank's advance grew by 21% YoY and deposit grew by 25% in Q1FY21. Bank's CASA ratio stood at around 40% as of Q1FY21, as compared to 39.7% in the year-ago and 42.2% at end of the Q4FY20. Even in this tough quarter, the bank lent Rs 10,797cr and was able to get deposit worth of Rs 42,000cr, which we believe largely because of the flight to safety. HDFC Bank has clearly gained market share in advance and deposit in lockdown period which we believe is positive for financial health.
We have a positive view on HDFC bank for long-term perspective considering its ability to raise deposit at a competitive rate, healthy capital adequacy ratio and market leadership position."
In Q1 of this fiscal, the lender's deposits grew 25 percent to Rs 11,89,500 crore against Rs 9,54,600 crore. In Q4 of last fiscal, deposits stood at Rs 11,47,500 crore.
