REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
To the State Bank of India, Reserve Bank of India and the Central Government, in termsof Section 43(1) of State Bank of India (Subsidiary Banks) Act, 1959.
1. MANAGEMENT DISCUSSIONS ANDANALYSIS :
1.1 Macro Economic Scenario and Banking environment
1.1.1. Global economic developments over the last few months present a mixed picture.US macro-economic prospects are clouded by the uncertainty surrounding the temporaryappropriations and the debt ceiling. In the Euro area, plagued by contingent risks ofpolitical uncertainty and adjustment fatigue, GDP shrank for the third successive quarterin Q4. Though some emerging and developing economies (EDEs), including China, aregradually returning to faster growth, activity is slowing in others, hobbled by weakexternal demand and slack domestic investment.
1.1.2. India's gross domestic product (GDP) slowed significantly this year, dropping to5.5 per cent in the first quarter, and dropping even further to 5.3 percent in the secondquarter. GDP growth in Q3 of FY 2013, at 4.5 percent, was the weakest in the last 15quarters.
1.1.3. The Central Statistics Office (CSO) has projected GDP growth for 2012-13 of 5.0percent lower than the Reserve Bank's baseline projection of 5.5 per cent set out in theThird Quarter Review, reflecting slower than expected growth in both industry andservices.
1.1.4. The year on year Wholesale Price Index inflation edged up to 6.8 per cent inFebruary 2013 from 6.6 per cent in January, essentially reflecting the upward revisionseffected to administered prices of petroleum products. On the other hand, non-foodmanufactured products inflation, and its momentum, continued to ebb along the trajectorythat began in September 2012, enabled by softening prices of metals, textiles, and rubberproducts. Retail inflation continued on the upward path that set in from October 2012. Thedivergence between whole-sale and consumer price inflation continued to widen during theyear.
1.1.5. With the RBI's policy of altering only the Repo rate, Banks are unlikely toimmediately cut deposit and lending rates, but may think to cut the rates in the nextfinancial year. Liquidity in the Banking system is tight in the run-up to the financialyear-end. However, further rate cuts and continuous monetary easing through open marketoperations will continue to support the bond market and the yields are expected tostabilize at lower levels.
Repo Rate: Reduction of Repo rate under the Liquidity Adjustment Facility (LAF) by25 basis points from 7.75 per cent to 7.50 percent was effected in a bid to cut the costof funds of Banks, which is further lent to productive sectors of the economy.
Reverse Repo Rate : The Reverse Repo rate under the LAF subsequently stood adjustedto 6.5 per cent and the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and the Bank Rate to 8.5percent.
Cash Reserve Ratio : The reduction of cash reserve ratio (CRR) of Banks by 25 basispoints, effective from February 9 and open market purchases of Rs. 2,000 crs sinceFebruary have enabled money market rates to remain anchored to the policy Repo rate.
Statutory Liquidity ratio : SLR has remained unchanged at 23 per cent w. e. f.11.08.2012.
1.1.6. To sum up, growth of the economy in 2012-13 has the following features :
Growth has been accelerated significantly on the domestic front, even asinflation remains at a level which is not conducive for sustained economic growth.
Despite notable softening of non-food manufactured products inflation, foodinflation remains high, driving a wedge between whole sale price inflation, and isexacerbating the challenge for monetary management in anchoring inflation expectations.
Macro-economic priorities on the domestic front would be to 'raise the growthrate, restrain inflation pressures and mitigate the vulnerability of the external sector'.
The composite Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) declined in February, largelyreflecting slower expansion in services.
Gross fiscal deficit (GFD)-GDP ratio, at 5.2 per cent, was contained around itsbudgeted level, mainly by scaling-down plan and capital expenditure.
Policy stance emphasizes addressing the growth risks, the head-room for furthermonetary easing remaining quite limited.
1.2. ECONOMY OF KARNATAKA
1.2.1. Karnataka economy is largely service oriented with the agricultural andindustrial sectors also contributing substantially. The State is the largest producer ofcoffee, raw silk, and sandalwood in the country and also adds considerably to thehorticulture production. The major manufacture oriented industries in the State includesugar, paper, steel and cement.
1.2.2. Karnataka's state capital Bangalore is considered the Silicon Valley of India.Several IT companies have their offices in Bangalore.
1.2.3. Advanced estimates of Karnataka's Gross Domestic Product (GSDP) at constant(2004-05) prices show that the State economy is expected to grow at 5.9% and reach Rs.3,03,444 crs in FY 2013 (from Rs. 2,86,410 crs in FY 2012). Karnataka's economy is showingencouraging trends due to the strong service sector, which grew by 8.9% in FY 2013.Despite the drought situation prevailing from last year, the agriculture and allied sectorhas achieved a growth rate of 1.8% in 2012-13 against -2.2% in FY 2012. The composition ofGSDP for FY 2013 is 15.3% from Agriculture and Allied Activities sector, 25.9% fromIndustry sector and 58.8% from service sector.
1.2.4. The State's own tax revenues increased from Rs. 25,987 crs in FY 2008 to Rs.51,821 crs during FY 2013 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.8%. The share ofdevelopment expenditure in GDP has significantly increased from 10.51% in FY 2008 to12.89% in FY 2013, while the share of interest payments has declined from 1.93 % to 1.44%.
1.2.5. The business growth of our Bank depends to a large extent on the Karnatakaeconomy, since 82.2% of branches (641 out of 780 branches as on 31.03.2013) are located inKarnataka. The budget size and State Plan FY 2014 envisages a total expenditure of Rs.1,17,005 crs on various development activities and regulatory functions of the Government,which is an increase of 13.88% over the budget of Rs. 1,02,742 crs of FY 2013. TheGovernment has given special thrust on infrastructural facilities such as Energy, Roads,Railways and Dhabhol-Bangalore Gas line project. Substantial investments are beingproposed in the city of Bangalore. Construction activity through-out the State, andinvestments by reputed industrial groups will offer good growth opportunity for the Bank.
