The bank is also set to announce its earnings for the quarter ended December this month. The lender in December 2019 indicated financial performance in Q3 of current fiscal is likely to remain subdued but the bank sees improvement in revenue in the March quarter on the back of government measures.
"Going forward, we expect Q3 FY20 to remain subdued, however topline growth in Q4 (fourth quarter) FY20 could see some relative improvement as the economy is likely to gradually respond to measures rolled out by the government along with improved monetary policy transmission," the bank said.
