“We are pleased to achieve the highest ever quarterly operating consolidated net profit in Q3 FY22, despite having a strong Q1FY22 and Q3FY21. Our consolidated net profit for 9MFY22 at Rs. 594.4 Cr has already surpassed full year consolidated net profit for FY21 of Rs. 590.1 Cr.
We are actively looking to grow the loan book across our lending segments and are witnessing strong traction particularly in bespoke finance.
Our retail mortgage business is now achieving critical size and scale. We have already expanded to around 50 locations and increased disbursements to over Rs. 150 Cr per quarter. The pipeline of digital initiatives remains strong. We announced the launch of Bondskart, a unique digital platform for ease of investment in debt securities. We have made critical hires, launched new products and added new features to our existing digital products for a seamless customer experience.
We remain focused on serving our clients and in line with the recent budget announcements, we look forward to participate in a strong growth environment.

The last quarter has seen a rapid recovery across all geographies after the second Covid wave. The residential sales across all geographies and across all ticket sizes have been robust. However, consumer confidence in the developer and project is of paramount importance.
We are also witnessing rapid consolidation in the sector whereby the amount of sales done by top developers as a percentage of overall sales is increasing gradually and significantly. Given the reduction of the inventory overhang across geographies and the rise in demand, developers are looking at acquiring new projects and we will witness increase in new launches.
All the above have been in line with our expectations and we feel that this end user driven sales is here to stay. We continue to cautiously evaluate opportunities across geographies and are looking at gradually increasing the lending book.
