During the year, we focused on responsible collections practices, offering our customers a convenient alternative to centre meeting repayment such as 9,000+ outlets/touch points for repayment in the proximity of their locations that helped improve the repayment rate. We also supported our customers through loan moratoriums and restructuring.
During FY 2020-21, we added no new brick-and-mortar branches. Kisan Pragati Card (Secured)—that was launched towards the end of FY 2019-20—scaled up with average monthly disbursals of ₹1.5 Crores, closing with a portfolio worth ₹7.5 Crores with 100% collections.
This segment closed FY 2020-21 with a loan portfolio outstanding of ₹678.8 Crores with 15% y-o-y growth and a borrower base of ₹2.32 Lakhs, while the liability book stood at ₹162. 8 Crores with 50% y-o-y growth.

With the vaccination drive gaining momentum, the second COVID-19 wave is showing signs of tapering off. We are now geared to fast-track our assets and deposits segments, with special focus on individual loans for the asset business growth. We expect collections to normalise soon to the pre-COVID-19 level.
We will further scale up our business segments such as gold loans, Kisan Pragati Card (in new geographies), Agri Group Loan and digital initiatives (such as cashless repayment and Ujjivan pay). In the coming year, we will also launch segment-specific new mobile banking application and M-LAP.
