Housing Development Finance Corporation Ltd. (HDFC) on Monday reported fourth-quarter standalone net profit rose 16% to ₹3,700 crore, from ₹3,180 crore in the year-earlier period, as demand for home loans improved.

For the 12 months ended March 31, 2022, the mortgage lender reported net profit of ₹13,742 crore, a 14.3% increase from ₹12,027 crore.

Individual approvals and disbursements grew by 38% and 37%, respectively, in the last fiscal year, HDFC said.

“Growth in home loans was seen in both, the affordable housing segment as well as in high-end properties,” the lender said in a statement. “The increasing sales momentum and new project launches augurs well for the housing sector,” it added.

During the year, 29% of home loans approved in volume terms and 13% in value terms had been to customers from the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and Low Income Group (LIG). The average home loan to the EWS and LIG segments stood at ₹11.2 lakh and ₹19.7 lakh, respectively, it said.

The Board recommended a dividend of ₹30 per equity share of face value of ₹2 each for the year ended March 31, compared with ₹23 in the previous year. The dividend pay-out ratio is 40%, HDFC said in a filing.

“The demand for home loans and pipeline of loan applications continues to remain strong,” it said.

As at March 31, 2022, the outstanding amount in respect of individual loans sold was ₹83,880 crore. HDFC continues to service these loans and gross NPLs stood at ₹10,741 crore. This was equivalent to 1.91% of the portfolio.

HDFC said it carried a total provision of ₹13,506 crore as at March 31 and its capital adequacy ratio stood at 22.8%, of which Tier I capital was 22.2% and Tier II capital was 0.6%.
