Though lack of credit demand exists in the economy, there is no supply-side constraint said SBI Chairman Rajnish Kumar.

Increased spending by the government and the upcoming festival season would boost demand, said SBI Chairman Rajnish Kumar.

Kolkata: State Bank of India (SBI) Chairman Rajnish Kumar on Sunday said credit demand remains subdued and there is a need for stimulus in the economy.

Though lack of credit demand exists in the economy, there is no supply-side constraint as the public sector banks are more or less well-capitalised, he said.

 

"Demand for credit in the economy is subdued. There is a need for stimulus in the economy", Kumar told reporters here. He was in the city to attend the multi-level consultation programme with the branch managers of SBI in the region.

"There is no supply-side constraint. More or less, the public sector banks are well capitalised and bank rates also moderated," he said. Kumar hoped that monsoon will have a positive impact.

Increased spending by the government and the upcoming festival season would boost demand, Kumar added.
