Despite being one of the younger players in the sector, we have seen impressive progress since commencing operations. Growth has been evident across all lines of businesses. New tie-ups & improved business from existing tie-ups in motor, higher branch activations/better penetrations across banca network, robust growth in Corporate, SME and Crop business has also contributed to the growth.
