Recently, the shares of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) Bank came down to a level of 98.10%. This level is below Rs.1000 from its previous level of Rs.1800. The J&K Bank has been under tremendous pressure after witnessing this decline for the first time in years. This decline also affects the asset quality and profitability of the bank as the rating agency CRISIL has rated Jammu & Kashmir Bank’s fixed deposits from AA+/stable to AA/negative, which is a descending order. However, the short term debt instruments possessed by the bank have been confirmed at A1+ by the rating agency. This is an indication of the healthy resource profile the bank has, and also the continued support the bank is likely to receive even during its time of crisis.
