    IDFC First Bank has posted outstanding performance in Q1. Its stock price is available at decent valuation. There are huge opportunities after its merger with Capital First, effect of which will be visible in forthcoming performance. Management team lead by ace retail banker V Vaidyanathan is another huge positive. It is a very good stock for gradual acquisition and minting money for at least one decade.
