The banking system in India is significantly different from that of other Asian nations. The country’s economic policy framework combines socialistic and capitalistic features with a heavy bias towards public sector investment.

About 92 percent of the country’s banking segment is under State control while the balance comprises private sector and foreign banks. The public sector commercial banks are divided into three categories.

  • State Bank Group (eight banks): This consists of the State Bank of India (SBI) and Associate Banks of SBI.
  • Nationalized Banks (nineteen banks): Nationalized banks are wholly owned by the Government, although some of them have made public issues. In contrast to the state bank group, nationalized banks are centrally governed, i.e., by their respective head offices. Thus, there is only one board for each nationalized bank.

The state bank group and nationalized banks are together referred to as the public sector banks(PSBs).

  • Regional Rural Banks: In 1975, the state bank group and nationalized banks were required to sponsor and set up RRBs in partnership with individual states to provide low-cost financing and credit facilities to the rural masses.[1]
