State Bank of India (SBI) has been raising resources from capital markets by way of bond issuance’s from time to time to take care of its asset growth and ensure repayment of maturing liabilities.

"SBI has been considering an issuance of USD 1-1.5 billion recently, partly to repay maturing bond liabilities and partly to fund asset growth. However, in view of the volatility in the global financial markets, the issuance has not materialised," Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha said in a written reply.

Their net profit put together stood at Rs 31,511 crore in 2013-14, which fell to Rs 30,860 crore in the following year.

The losses of all loss-making state co-operative banks taken together rose in 2013-14, but declined in 2014-15.
