The bank's deposits and advances increased by 22% and 17% respectively for the nine months ended FY01. Credit to deposit ratio however, declined to 43% (from 45%) during the same period.

Depreciation charge of the bank grew by more than 160% during the quarter. This was due to higher rate of (33.3%) depreciation on computers as per the RBI's recent guidelines. This resulted in an additional charge of Rs 42.8 m for the quarter.

At the current market price of Rs 28, IDBI Bank is trading at 13 times its 3QFY01 annualised earnings. Its Price/Book value ratio of 1.5 times is comparatively lower than other private sector banks.
