During the year, the bank's operating margins declined on the back of high cost of deposits and low proportion of retail assets.

GTB's advances and deposits witnessed a growth of 27% and 24% respectively. Its net NPA to advances ratio increased considerably to 3.75% in FY01 from 0.9% in the previous year. This was due to losses made on account of high exposure to capital markets.

At the current market price of Rs 27, GTB is trading at a P/E multiple of 4 times its FY01 earnings. The bank's valuations are comparatively low than its peers in the sector.
