I would like to thank on behalf of Edelweiss team the top management of the SBI for taking time out and giving us opportunity to host the call for market investors from all over the world.

Now without taking much of the time, let me hand over the call to Mr. Chaudhuri for the opening remarks and free flow conversation will all of you. Thank you. Over to you sir.

Pratip Chaudhuri - Chairman: Welcome to the conference call. Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening to everybody. I will just spend about few minutes giving a summary of the results and as we see it. Firstly, the profits of the bank on a consolidated basis at INR 179 billion is up about 17% from last year, which is INR 153 billion and on a standalone basis it is INR 141 billion compared to INR 117 billion, 20% up.

Why we put the consolidated in front, because State Bank of India apart from being a bank is also a holding company, which has substantial liquidity holding in five banks and one life insurance company, asset management company, investment bank, et cetera, et cetera. So about 30% of the equity of the bank is working in its associates and subsidiaries in order to give a full view of the earnings thereof, we thought it is important to present to you the consolidated and also at times some of the subsidiaries may not be doing well. So if we don't bring that to the fore, it may give to rise to (indiscernible) giving that whether the bad part is being shadowed in the subsidiaries.
