After the apex bank lifted its restrictions, the shares of the company were trading at Rs. 7,295 price level, up by nearly 6 per cent on


"The Company would now resume sanction and disbursal of loans in the above two business segments including issuance of EMI cards. The Company remains committed to ensure adherence and compliance of regulatory guidelines," the exchange filing read.

In the quarter ending March, Bajaj Finance reported a consolidated net profit of Rs 3,825 crore, a 21 per cent increase compared to the same period last year. The company's assets under management (AUM) saw robust growth, surging by 34 per cent year-on-year to reach Rs 3.30 trillion.
