Mumbai: State Bank of India, the country's biggest lender, reported a 4 per cent gain in quarterly net profit, the smallest increase in more than a year, as higher provisions for bad loans and slower loan demand hurt growth.

Standalone net profit rose to Rs 3396 crore for the quarter ended December, from Rs 3260 crore a year earlier, the bank said on Thursday. Analysts, on average, had expected a net profit of Rs 3696 crore.

SBI's standalone non-performing loan ratio of 2.59 per cent of assets for the quarter compared with 2.2 percent a year earlier.
