Growth in digital and payments platforms


In December 2020, the Bank had expanded its state-of-the-art mobile banking app, iMobile, to iMobile Pay which offers payment and banking services to customers of any bank. There were about 1,500,000 activations of iMobile Pay from non-ICICI Bank account holders in Q2-2022, taking the total such activations to 4,000,000 within nine months of launch. The transactions by non-ICICI Bank account holders in terms of value and volume respectively, were three times and 13 times higher in September 2021 compared to June 2021. The value of transactions through the ‘Pay to Contact’ feature, which enables users to easily transfer money to any payment app or digital wallet via UPI, was about three times higher in September 2021 compared to June 2021.


The Bank continues to expand the suite of services offered through iMobile Pay to achieve high engagement levels with users. Recently, the Bank launched a facility which enables its savings account holders to manage dues of credit cards of any bank through iMobile Pay. The Bank also launched a contactless payment facility on iMobile Pay which enables users of android based smartphones to make credit and debit card payments on POS terminals in a safe and secure manner by tapping their phones.


The business banking and SME franchise continues to grow on the back of digital offerings and platforms like InstaBIZ. InstaBIZ offers various services such as instant overdraft facility, payment of Goods and Services Tax (GST), foreign exchange deal booking, business loans based on revenues reported in GST returns, automatic bank reconciliations and inward and outward remittances. The value of financial transactions on InstaBIZ has grown by about 80% year-on-year in Q2-2022. The Bank’s supply chain platforms enable corporates to seamlessly manage their supply chain financing and payments, collection and reconciliation requirements of their dealers and vendors in a convenient and paperless manner. The Bank has onboarded about 200 corporate customers on these supply chain platforms. About 70% of the dealers of these customers are active on the supply chain platforms. The value of transactions through these platforms increased 4.7 times year-on-year in Q2-2022.


In the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) space, the Bank’s strategy is to participate directly through the Bank’s own platforms as well as partner with third party players, in both the peer-to-peer and payment-to-merchant segments. The value of the Bank’s merchant acquiring transactions through UPI more than doubled year-on-year and grew by 34% sequentially in Q2-2022.


The value of mobile banking transactions increased by 62% year-on-year to ₹ 406,501 crore (US$ 54.8 billion) in Q2-2022. Digital channels like internet, mobile banking, PoS and others accounted for over 90% of the savings account transactions in H1-2022. The Bank is the market leader in electronic toll collections through FASTag. The Bank had a market share of 37% by value in electronic toll collections through FASTag in Q2-2022, with a 63% year-on-year growth in collections.


The Bank had launched ICICI STACK for corporates and has created 19 industry specific STACKs which provide bespoke and purpose-based digital solutions to corporate clients and their ecosystems. The volume of transactions through these solutions grew 2.4 times year-on-year in Q2-2022. These solutions along with the depth of the Bank’s coverage have supported the strong growth in average current account deposits. Further, the Bank is well positioned to capture the opportunities arising from the growing FDI and capital market flows.


The Bank is focusing holistically on the merchant ecosystem, both directly and through partnerships. The Super Merchant current account which offers various benefits such as digital account opening and instant overdraft facilities based on point-of-sale transactions has received good response from customers. The Bank has partnered with Amazon India to offer instant overdraft to sellers, including non-ICICI Bank customers, on its portal. The Bank has also launched an instant overdraft facility for MSMEs registered on the GEM Sahay application through API integration with the OCEN network.

  1. Excluding treasury income
  2. The Reserve Bank of India, through its clarification dated August 30, 2021, has advised banks that the fair value of share-linked instruments granted after March 31, 2021 should be recognised as an expense. Accordingly, the Bank has changed its accounting policy from intrinsic value method to fair value method for valuation of all stock options granted after March 31, 2021 under its Employee Stock Options Scheme. The fair value of stock options is estimated on the date of grant using Black-Scholes model and is recognised as employee expense over the vesting period. Accordingly, the Bank has accounted for additional employee expenses of ₹ 125 crore (US$ 17 million) during the quarter and half year ended September 30, 2021 with a consequent reduction in profit after tax by the said amount
  3. Includes profit on sale of shareholding in subsidiaries of ₹ 3,670 crore (US$ 494 million) in FY2021 (Q2-2021: ₹ 305 crore (US$ 41 million), H1-2021: ₹ 3,341 crore (US$ 450 million)) 
  4. Includes Covid-19 related contingency provisions of ₹ 497 crore (US$ 67 million) on borrower accounts not classified as non-performing pursuant to the Supreme Court’s interim order
  5. During Q1-2022, the Bank has changed its policy on non-performing loans to make it more conservative. The change in policy resulted in higher provision on non-performing advances amounting to about ₹ 1,127 crore (US$ 152 million) in Q1-2022
  6. During FY2021, the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in a nation-wide lockdown in April-May 2020 which substantially impacted economic activity. Regulatory measures like moratorium on payment of dues and standstill in asset classification were implemented to mitigate the economic consequences on borrowers. The pandemic resulted in increase in provisioning reflecting higher actual and expected additions to non-performing loans. The easing of lockdown measures subsequently led to gradual improvement in economic activity and progress towards normalcy from the second half of FY2021.


    The second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in April-May 2021 led to the re-imposition of localised/regional lock-down measures in various parts of the country. The second wave has started to subside from June 2021 onwards and there has been a lifting of lock downs, resulting in a gradual increase in economic activity.

    The Bank made net Covid-19 related provision of ₹ 4,750 crore (US$ 640 million) in FY2021 and held an aggregate Covid-19 related provision of ₹ 7,475 crore (US$ 1.0 billion) at March 31, 2021. During H1-2022, the Bank wrote-back Covid-19 related provision of ₹ 1,050 crore (US$ 141 million) (Q1-2022: ₹ 1,050 crore (US$ 141 million), Q2-2022: Nil) and accordingly held Covid-19 related provision of ₹ 6,425 crore (US$ 866 million) at September 30, 2021.


    While there has been a reduction in the number of new reported Covid-19 cases, significant progress on vaccination and increase in economic activity, the impact, including with respect to credit quality and provisions, of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Bank and the Group, is uncertain and will depend on the trajectory of the pandemic, progress and effectiveness of the vaccination programme, the effectiveness of current and future steps taken by the government and central bank to mitigate the economic impact and the steps taken by the Bank and the Group.
