Private lender Axis Bank today reported its March quarter results after market hours.

Over the past few quarters, the bank has seen a sharp improvement in its provisions and non-performing assets (NPAs).

Also, the bank recently acquired Citibank's retail assets in India. Market participants were eagerly waiting on its commentary around growth, credit costs and NIMs.

Here are five key takeaways from Axis Bank's results.

  • Axis Bank's net profit rose 54% year on year (YoY) and stood at Rs 41.2 bn as compared with Rs 26.8 bn in the same quarter last year.

    This was aided by higher net interest income.
  • Net interest income (NII) for the quarter grew 17% YoY to Rs 88.2 bn. Net interest margin (NIM) for the quarter came in at 3.49%.
  • Loans growth came in at 15% YoY with retail loans rising 21% and SMEs up 26% on a YoY basis.
  • Provisions during the quarter stood at Rs 9.9 bn, down 54.4% YoY.
