The Indian Banking Sector

The GoI realized the importance of a strong banking sector for the development of the country and gave due importance to banking. Before India's independence in 1947, banking was essentially an informal, local process, with moneylenders playing a prominent role. Banking institutions were usually private bodies and operated at the local level.

After 1947, the RBI and the State Bank of India (SBI)9 played a prominent role in the Indian banking sector along with other private banks. In keeping with the country's principle of socialism, the GoI undertook nationalization of several private banks in 1969. In the first phase of the nationalization program, 14 banks were taken over by the government.

In 1993, the New Bank of India merged with the Punjab National Bank to form a single entity, bringing down the number of PSBs to 27.

With branches numbering well over 60,000 and deposits of Rs 1, 10,000 crore, PSBs held a combined market share of 90 percent by the early 1990s. One important reason behind the continued success of PSBs was the assistance and backing of the government. According to analysts, most PSBs depended on the government for their additional capital requirements and received regular infusion of funds to maintain capital adequacy. Apart from a few cases, where additional capital was needed to support a growing volume of business, most of the banks depended on additional funds to sustain their regular business, which was on the decline because of chronic weaknesses in the banks...
