Correlation coefficient was used to analyze the effect of credit risk on the profitability of PNB. The study has an immense use to meet consumer needs and to face competition with other banks. The major reason of increased NPAs is the focus of bank on quantitative aspect of target attainment and less attention is being paid to the qualitative aspect of loan disbursement and mismanagement of funds. The synonym is also coming in that bank is no longer able to recover their NPAs because of which it has to face loss instead of profits.
