Net NPAs also rose to 9.56 per cent of net advances as of June 2017, against 8.11 per cent a year ago.

The rise in bad loans proportion led to higher provisioning of Rs 1,591.48 crore for the quarter ended June 2017 against Rs 1,147.49 crore in the year-ago period.

Shares of OBC closed 7.09 per cent down at Rs 117.90 on the BSE.
