About Icici Bank

ICICI (Industrial Credit and Investment Corporation of India) Bank, one of India’s leading private banks, was originally formed in 1955 as an initiative by the World Bank, the Government of India, and representatives of the industry. The aim of this initiative was to create a developmental financial institution that can help provide medium and long term financial aid to Indian businesses. This continued till the liberalisation policies came into place in the 1990s, after which the enterprise expanded its services to include diversified financial services and products to its customers.A part of the brand Group, the bank was incorporated in 1994, and after five years, became the first Indian company and the first financial institution from non-Japan Asia to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

Though decades of set up has allowed the bank to garner quite a lot of goodwill, many customers and shareholders harbour certain criticisms towards the organisation. Apart from poor complaint resolution processes in place, which has led to a high number of disputes against the organisation, ICICI Bank also has one of the strictest loan and debt repayment programs. They often hire third party services for recovery, which has led to a lot of complaints about harassment and consumer attack during recovery even before the deadlines.

COVID-19 Impact

The pandemic did impact economies as well as banking systems across the world and in India. The lockdown that was nationwide from March to May 2020 impacted the bank activities, but the subsequent easing of lockdown rules led to gradual improvement. There was lower demand for loans as well as most fee based services. The second wave after in March 2021 resulted in re-imposition of the lockdown and the effectiveness of the company and future steps were affected and delayed respectively, but under the guidance and leadership of Chanda Kochhar, the bank was able to mitigate the impact and return its activities to pre-pandemic levels fairly quickly, maintaining a rising share market.

Future Prospects

In the March quarter of FY21, the brand reported a net profit of Rs 4,403 crore, up by 260% year-on-year (YoY) from the previous year while its operating profit grew by 16%. In light of this, the company has revised its one-year target stock price, from Rs. 800 to Rs. 825. Moreover, they have also increased their earnings by 4-6% and intend to continue reporting stable asset quality and steady growth momentum.
