MUMBAI (Reuters) - State Bank of India (SBI), the country's biggest lender, has a loan restructuring pipeline of 37 billion rupees for the quarter ending March 31, its chairman, Pratip Chaudhri, told reporters on Thursday.

SBI, earlier on Thursday, posted a 4 percent rise in quarterly net profit, its smallest increase in six quarters, as higher provisions for bad loans and slower loan demand in a sluggish economy hurt growth.
