Banking in India originated in the last decades of the 18th century. The first banks were The General Bank of India, which started in 1786, and Bank of Hindustan, which started in 1790; both are now defunct. The oldest bank in existence in India is the State Bank of India, which originated in the Bank of Calcutta in June 1806, which almost immediately became the Bank of Bengal. This was one of the three presidency banks, the other two being the Bank of Bombay and the Bank of Madras, all three of which were established under charters from the British East India Company. For many years the Presidency banks acted as quasi-central banks, as did their successors. The three banks merged in 1921 to form the Imperial Bank of India, which, upon India's independence, became the State Bank of India in 1955. Currently, India has 88 scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) - 27 public sector banks(that is with the Government of India holding a stake), 31 private banks(these do not have government stake; they may be publicly listed and traded on stock exchanges) and 38 foreign banks. They have a combined network of over 53,000 branches and 17,000 ATMs. According to a report by ICRA Limited, a rating agency, the public sector banks hold over 75% of total assets of the banking industry, with the private and foreign banks holding 18.2% and 6.5% respectively. Banking has played a very important role in the economic development of country. It is the life-blood of trade and commerce. They are so important that modern business is certainly impossible without them, and no country can achieve commercial and industrial progress in the absence of a sound banking system. Banking systems play a pivotal role in the economic development of a country like India. Their performance is all more important. Their activities are to be directed in such a way that they function effectively and efficiently. In addition to lending and borrowing of money, a modern bank performs a host of other functions. All of which are not considerable utility to its customers and the community generally. According to sec.5(b) of the Banking Regulation Act 1940, banking means, the accepting for the purpose of lending or investment of deposit money from the public repayable on demand or otherwise, and withdrawable by cheque, draft, order or otherwise. In short banking is acceptance of money with one hand and lending it through the order. The foreign banks were the first bank established in India. These are known as exchange banks.

History Indian merchants in Calcutta established the Union Bank in 1839, but it failed in 1848 as a consequence of the economic crisis of 1848-49. The Allahabad Bank, established in 1865 and still functioning today, is the oldest Joint Stock bank in India.(Joint Stock Bank: A company that issues stock and requires shareholders to be held liable for the company's debt) It was not the first though. That honor belongs to the Bank of Upper India, which was established in 1863, and which survived until 1913, when it failed, with some of its assets and liabilities being transferred to the Alliance Bank of Simla. When the American Civil War stopped the supply of cotton to Lancashire from the Confederate States, promoters opened banks to finance trading in Indian cotton. With large exposure to speculative ventures, most of the banks opened in India during that period failed. The depositors lost money and lost interest in keeping deposits with banks. Subsequently, banking in India remained the exclusive domain of Europeans for next several decades until the beginning of the 20th century. Foreign banks too started to arrive, particularly in Calcutta, in the 1860s. The Comptoire d'Escompte de Paris opened a branch in Calcutta in 1860, and another in Bombay in 1862; branches in Madras and Pondicherry, then a French colony, followed. HSBC established itself in Bengal in 1869. Calcutta was the most active trading port in India, mainly due to the trade of the British Empire, and so became a banking center. The first entirely Indian joint stock bank was the Oudh Commercial Bank, established in 1881 in Faizabad. It failed in 1958. The next was the Punjab National Bank, established in Lahore in 1895, which has survived to the present and is now one of the largest banks in India. Around the turn of the 20th Century, the Indian economy was passing through a relative period of stability. Around five decades had elapsed since the Indian Mutiny, and the social, industrial and other infrastructure had improved. Indians had established small banks, most of which served particular ethnic and religious communities. The presidency banks dominated banking in India but there were also some exchange banks and a number of Indian joint stock banks. All these banks operated in different segments of the economy. The exchange banks, mostly owned by Europeans, concentrated on financing foreign trade. Indian joint stock banks were generally under capitalized and lacked the experience and maturity to compete with the presidency and exchange banks. This segmentation let Lord Curzon to observe, "In respect of banking it seems we are behind the times. We are like some old fashioned sailing ship, divided by solid wooden bulkheads into separate and cumbersome compartments."

The period between 1906 and 1911, saw the establishment of banks inspired by the Swadeshi movement. The Swadeshi movement inspired local businessmen and political figures to found banks of and for the Indian community. A number of banks established then have survived to the present such as Bank of India, Corporation Bank, Indian Bank, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank and Central Bank of India. The fervour of Swadeshi movement lead to establishing of many private banks in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi district which were unified earlier and known by the name South Canara ( South Kanara ) district. Four nationalised banks started in this district and also a leading private sector bank. Hence undivided Dakshina Kannada district is known as "Cradle of Indian Banking". Deposits play an important role in any Banking system. Deposits provide limits to the working capital of the bank. The higher the deposits, the higher will be the funds at the disposal of the bank to lend and earn profit. The deposits, of any bank are of two major types, deemed deposit and time deposit. In order to attract customers the banks offer attractive facilities to different type of deposit account holders. In order to avoid competition among different banks, the RBI has been given the power to fix deposit interest rate. The Reserve Bank for this purpose, issues directive from time to time. No bank can play interest on deposit in excess of the rates prescribed by the Reserve Bank. One of the major growth oriented function of the banking industry is the mobilization of deposits, which serves as the basis for capital formation and facilitates the process of economic development. Mobilization and development of resources in loans and investment are the basic functions of a bank. The role of banking industry essentially is to mobilize and appropriately analyze savings, which is the second stage of capital formation. The importance of banking system lies in providing suitable opportunities to collect together the savings and in influencing the willingness of the people to save and invest. A bank is essentially an intermediary of short-term funds. A good banker is one who effectively mobilizes the savings of the community. In the commercial banking system the level of deposits depends primarily on the amount of credit extended by banks in the form of loans and investments. The level of economic activity influences the level of deposits in banks. Deposits are higher during the prosperity phase of business cycle than in the period of recession and depression. Deposit activity is affected by the amount of government expenditure. Deposits with commercial banks are the most popular form of investment media. A various combination of demand, term and recurring deposits banks have brought spectrum of deposit scheme. A large number of new schemes have been introduced for deposit mobilization.

The bank accepts variety of deposits and grant loan to the members at concessional rate of interest. The various deposits of the bank include fixed deposits, recurring deposits, saving deposits, current deposits, etc. Loans are granted for agricultural purpose, education, medical treatment, general purpose, marriage etc. Increasing deposits with the banks will help to bring to the organized market savings that are idle or are wasted or are used in creating assets, which may not confirm to plan priorities. Catholic Syrian Bank has chosen Sun Microsystems to implement its core banking solution (CBS) that will help customers access the banks services through the branches, Website and ATMs (automated teller machines). CSB will Rs40 crore on the solution, which includes hardware, software, application and network. The centralised banking solution (called Maarvel) was developed jointly with Laser Soft, a Chennaibased company. Sun has provided servers and storage devices and Wipro is the system integrator.).

Profile of Catholic Syrian Bank Ltd, Palarivattom Branch


The genesis of Indian Banking is associated to a large extent with Swadeshi Movement, which inspired many Indians to promote Swadeshi Banks in the beginning of the 20th Century. The enterprising founders of Catholic Syrian Bank Ltd also found this period to be a moment of opportunity to promote the establishment of a bank. Thus was born The Catholic Syrian Bank Ltd, Nine decades ago, on 26th November 1920 to be exact at Thrissur, which in later years acquired the unique distinction of being a centre with the highest concentration of banks in the South. The founder directors of the bank were people of eminence known for their foresight, integrity and initiative. The policy they laid down has been consistently upheld by the successive generations who guided the destiny of the institution. The bank commenced business on January 1st, 1921 with an authorised capital of Rs.5lakhs and a paid up capital of Rs. 45270/During the first two decades of its functioning, the Bank concentrated only in Kerala. Banks and credit institutions which proliferated especially in Kerala received a jolt and many of them came to their doom following the crash of the Travancore National Quilon Bank in 1938 followed by Palai Central Bank in1960. During the period many small banks came to the verge of collapse shaking the confidence of the public and what followed was a process of consolidation. The strategy of mergers and amalgamations of small banks with bigger banks brought the number of banks within controllable limits, thereby making the industry's base strong. In 1964-65, The Catholic Syrian Bank Ltd took part in taking over the liabilities and assets of five small/medium sized banks in Kerala. The expansion programme initiated during these years gathered momentum in the subsequent years. In August 1969, the Bank was included in the Second Schedule to the Reserve Bank of India Act 1934. In 1975, the Bank attained the status of "A" Class Scheduled Bank when its total Deposits crossed Rs.25crores. The necessity of imparting training to staff looked very important and a modest beginning was therefore, made in setting up a Training College in 1975. In the same year the Bank entered the field of foreign Exchange. At a very early stage, the Bank recognised mechanisation as an effective tool of management and streamlined its accounting procedures by introduction of Data processing system. From November 1975, reconciliation of inter-branch accounts was mechanised by using IBM Data processing machines. The decade of the seventies saw the evolution of a new culture in Indian Banking. Nationalisation of banks imposed "Social Control" and imparted new ethos to commercial banking . What followed was a massive expansion of bank branches with a distinct thrust on remote rural belts. Special schemes were formulated to cater to the diverse credit needs of small scale industries, road transport operators, agriculturists, and other self employed entrepreneurs.

Special schemes were formulated to cater to the diverse credit needs of small scale industries, road transport operators, agriculturists, and other self employed entrepreneurs.

As a result, the total income from forex business for the year increased to Rs30.82crore from Rs23.64crore in the previous year. To facilitate remittance by NRIs, the Bank has drawing arrangements with 16 Exchange Houses and one Bank.

During the year, the Banks Integrated Treasury has continued to be an active player in the Inter-Bank Foreign Exchange market. With the US Dollar forward premium ruling high, the cost of US Dollar denominated foreign currency loans have moved up substantially during the year. As a result, the demand for such loans remained low during the year. As a result, your Bank deployed the funds in other profitable avenues including rupee assets. Due to the persistent upward bias in interest rates and liquidity tightness, the G Sec market too remained lacklustre for most part of the fiscal. Further, the stock market remained volatile and lost much of the gains shortly after peaking in November 2010. Despite the adverse conditions, your Bank made a trading profit of Rs 5.21crore. The yield on treasury investments has improved from 5.49% in 2009-2010 to 6.33% in 2010-2011.

For providing instant fund transfer from the Middle East, a technology-based product CSBINSTAREMIT was launched. On the amount being credited, the exchange company generates through CSB an SMS, which is sent both to the beneficiary and to the remitter. Considering the low interest rate on NRE and FCNR deposits, the Bank has introduced a deposit product CSB NREPLUS for enabling NRIs to earn higher returns on their investments. The product helps non-residents to earn a higher interest rate on their deposits by effective use of the forward cover mechanism.
