  • The company's NPAs may increase due to the inability of borrowers to repay loans due to factors such as delay in payment from state electricity distribution companies, tariff and regulatory-related issues, force majeure events like droughts, floods, etc., delay in project implementation and commissioning, among others.

  • Volatility in interest rates could adversely affect the business, hedging instruments, net interest income and net interest margin, which in turn would affect the business and its operations.
