Private lender ICICI Bank saw its net profit for the September quarter dip more than half over the year-ago quarter. Net profit for the quarter stood at Rs 9.09 billion against Rs 20.58 billion a year ago, said the bank in a stock exchange filing. The bank had reported its first-ever loss amounting to Rs 1.2 billion for the previous June quarter (Q1). The June-September quarter saw the bank embroiled in leadership problems as Chanda Kochhar had gone on leave in June facing conflict of interest allegations. Net interest income (NII) rose 11 per cent to Rs 64.18 billion in September 2018 against Rs 57.09 billion in the year-ago quarter.
