Most of the Banks registered loss in the March 2018 with Punjab National Bank leading the list of Loss Making Banks, and only two PSB viz. Indian Bank and Vijay Bank have registered profit. 

Banks are the Back-bone of any Economy.
Banks are at the core of any economic system whether developed or developing.
-Essentially, a technologically advanced, transparent and efficient banking system is the need of the hour for the growing economy like India.
-In order to achieve the goal of faster and inclusive growth, it is high time the government and banking industry undertake a comprehensive relook into the existing policies and structures.

Status of Banking Sector at a glance
- The Indian banking system consists of 21 public sector banks including State Bank of India & IDBI, 40 private sector banks including LAB, Small Finance Bank & Payment Banks and the recent India Post Payment Bank launched on 1st September 2018, 45 Foreign Banks, 56 regional rural banks, 31 State Cooperative Banks,1548 urban cooperative banks and 93913 rural cooperative banks.

  • Rising Rural Penetration:
  • As of June 2017, 56 regional rural banks are functioning in the country.

It is hoped that India would be amongst First 5th/6th World Economy in next few Years. 

Indian Banking has undergone several changes during the last 20 years or so from traditional banking to Universal Banking and Technology Banking. 

Crisis in Management

Retirement of Public-sector banks employees was in large number during these days. So, younger employees are replacing the elder, more-experienced employees.
As a result there was a virtual vacuum at the middle and senior level. The absence of middle management could lead to adverse impact on banks' decision making process. This younger generation has to learn a lot and equip themselves with the required skills for improving overall efficiency with decreased operation costs.
It is therefore important for the front office staff and fresher’s as well as younger generation to equip themselves with skills by acquiring Banking Knowledge and be ready to learn day-to-day Banking practically.

Our attempt is to provide 'Latest Developments in Banking and Financial Sector' along with the Global Trade War Impact on Indian Economy and the Rupee Depreciation etc.
