Private banks in India.



Private sector banks in India are the banks where the majority of the shares or
equity is not held by the government, but by private share-holders. These banks
are a part of the Indian banking system which comprises of both private banks
and public sector banks. The banking sector in India is dominated by the public
sector banks. However
after liberalization
in the government banking policy in the 1990s, the private sector banks have
emerged and have grown rapidly over the two decades since liberalization, using
the latest technology, providing contemporary innovations and monetary tools
and techniques.
Major difference between Public
Sector banks & Private Sector banks is that Public Sector banks dominate
the Indian banking system, with total market share of nearly 72.9%, whereas Private
sector banks, with nearly 19.7%.
The
private sector banks are split into two groups by financial regulators in
India, old and new. The old private
sector banks
existed prior to nationalization in 1969 and maintained their
independence as they were too small to be nationalized. The new private sector banks are those that
have gained their banking license after liberalization of the 1990s.













Private Sector Banks in India : Banking System


The existing Indian Banking System structure makes progress over several decades, is elaborated and has been providing the credit and banking services needs of Indian economy. Indian Banking System is divided into multiple layers which follows the requirements of different customers and borrowers of the country. The banking structure played a crucial role in the mobilization of savings and promoting economic development. In the post-financial sector reforms (1991) phase, the performance and strength of the Indian Banking structure improved noticeably. India cannot possess a healthy economy without a strong and productive banking system. The banking system should be hassle free and must be able to meet the new challenges posed by technology and other factors.
The RBI is the apex bank and the monetary authority of India which regulates the banking system of the country. It governs all the banks in the country like commercial banks, cooperative banks and development banks (development finance institutions).
The commercial bank includes public sector banks, private sector banks, foreign banks, regional rural banks and local area banks.
The commercial banks can be classified into two categories – public sector banks and private sector banks. Both categories of banks are meant to provide good banking facilities and services to customers.

sector banks in India. Listed below are the names of the private sector banks
