State Bank of India (SBI) on Friday reported a standalone net loss of Rs 4,876 crore for the April-June period. That marked the third quarter of net loss for SBI. The loss was much larger than analysts' estimates of Rs 171 crore, according to Thomson Reuters. The country's largest bank had registered a net profit of Rs 2,006 crore for the corresponding period a year ago. 

For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, SBI reported a revenue of Rs 58,813 crore, as against Rs 55,941 crore a year ago.

In Pics: Largest employers in the world

Largest employers in the world: During President Barack Obama’s time in office, he regularly referred to small business as “the backbone of America’s economy.” One could certainly defend this claim by pointing to the fact that 48% of Americans in the private workforce are employed by small businesses, defined as those with 500 or fewer workers by the U.S. Small Business Association. However, since small businesses make up 99.7% of all American companies, that means that more than half of the private workforce is employed by 0.3% of the companies, suggesting that a select handful of corporations are primarily responsible for allowing the U.S. economy to remain in homeostasis. Many big companies not only employ American citizens here at home, but help stimulate the job markets across all four corners of the Earth. Using data from Statista, Stacker listed the 50 companies that employ the most people globally as of 2016. The list includes employers that are both private and public organizations, ranging from for-profit retail companies to citizen-serving government agencies.

The net loss was attributable to higher provisions for non-performing assets (NPAs) — or bad loans.

Provisions stood at Rs 19,499 crore in Q1, as against Rs 9,051 crore in the year-ago period.

Gross bad loans as a percentage of total loans stood at 10.69 per cent from 10.91 per cent in the previous quarter and 9.97 per cent last year.

For the January-March, SBI had posted a loss of Rs 7,718 crore, as the country's biggest lender set aside more provisions for bad loans after a change in banking regulation. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had in February this year announced tighter norms, which did away with half a dozen loan restructuring schemes.
