NEW DELHI: PSU lender Corporation Bank today reported a net loss of Rs 1,838 crore for the March quarter of last fiscal, mainly on account of increased provisioning.

The bank had reported a net profit of Rs 159 crore in the corresponding period of the 2016-17 fiscal.

Corporation Bank is among the 11 lenders which have been placed under the RBI's prompt corrective action (PCA) framework on account of high bad loans.

Provisions for non-performing assets (NPAs) or bad loans increased to Rs 4,441 crore during fourth quarter of 2017-18 as against Rs 853 crore during the January-March period of the previous fiscal, the bank said in a filing to the BSE.

The gross NPAs of the bank soared to 16.21 per cent in March quarter, from 11.70 per cent in the same period of 2016-17.
