By Aditya Raghunath -- India’s largest public bank, State Bank Of India (NS: SBI ), reported its numbers for Q1 FY22. The bank reported total income of Rs 93,266.94 crore, up 6% from Rs 87984.33 crore it posted in Q1 FY21. It is down -9.83% sequentially. The bank’s net profit came on Rs 7,379.91 crore in the June 2021 quarter.

It said, “SBI reported steady performance in a challenging environment, with strong earnings led by controlled provisions. However, business trends were modest, impacted by the lockdowns.

    Have been hearing Analyst and Brokerage calling for SBI to be a 1000 stock in 3years for over a decade. The banks is burdened with debt of one and all in India and Government keeps on putting more loads on their head, like Yes bank etc. Dont see this stock crossing 550 in next few years too.
