Our strategy to maintain a quality asset book has been fruitful so far.” “Our results sound reasonably fine amid the squeaks of stress in asset-quality of banks across the industry coupled with adverse macro-economic conditions persisting in the country. In such a scenario, our focus too has been more on maintaining quality of assets rather than raising the numbers”, he said. With elections looming amid economic downturn, we feel the going would get tougher for at least couple of quarters to come. Yet we feel confident to deliver growth around 15 % besides preserving our key quality parameters, Chairman said. Moving ahead with the policy of expansion, in the past three quarters we have opened 73 Business Units and commissioned 154 ATMs, he added. The Chairman said, “Agriculture and handicrafts shall continue to be our focus in lending within the state. However, amid shrinking industrial output across the country, the entrepreneurial and industrial activity within the state looks poised to pick up. Going forward, we plan to lend aggressively to build its momentum within the state”, he said.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
