SBI could also miss consensus earnings per share (EPS) estimates by 3 percent in the October-December quarter, according to Thomson Reuters StarMine SmartEstimate data, which measures the forecasts from top-ranked analysts against wider forecasts.

StarMine SmartEstimate suggests EPS for the quarter ending December at 52.50 rupees, compared with mean estimates of 54.15 rupees.
