Mumbai: Karnataka-based Vijaya Bank aims to bring down its cost of deposits by September, a top bank official said.

"Our plan is to bring down our cost of funds. Presently, it is 6.82 per cent--our aim is to bring it down to 6.5 per cent by September," Vijaya Bank's Chairman and Managing Director, Albert Tauro, told reporters on the sidelines of a conference here today.

The public sector lender has witnessed some pick-up in its agri and education loan portfolios, Tauro said.

"Home loans have, however, not picked-up significantly," he said.

On corporate loans, Tauro said that interest is being increasingly evinced by corporates, especially from the infrastructure segment. "These corporates have started approaching us for achieving their financial closure," he said.
