CRISIL Ratings has also reaffirmed its ‘CRISIL AAA/Stable/CRISIL A I+’ ratings on the Tier II Bonds (under Basel III) and Lower Tier II bonds (under Basel II), and the short-term rating on the certificate of deposit.
“The upgrade in the rating of Tier I bonds (under Basel III) factors in the improved position of Canara Bank to make future coupon payments, supported by proposed adjustment of accumulated losses with share premium account, and the improved capital ratios of the bank.
