Shares in ICICI Bank, India’s top private lender, gained 1.7 percent on Monday, as the bank said that its Q3 net profit rose more than 30 percent.

This was the bank’s strongest pace of growth in three quarters.

ICICI Bank Chief Executive Chanda Kochhar said that the bank expected “at least” 20 percent credit growth in 2011/12 compared with an expected 18 percent growth in the fiscal year ending on March 31.
