September 25: SBI's Arundhati Bhattacharya says the bank has a well-diversified portfolio. Despite implementing measures to curb stress, we cannot escape stress amid the economic slowdown, she says, adding that “SBI’s NPAs and restructured assets are lower than other private sector banks.” We’ve not stopped lending to road projects but are insisting that land acquisition is completed to avoid delays and stress on bank loans, she adds.
