Kotak Mahindra Bank is an Indian private

sector banking headquartered inMumbai, Maharashtra, India. In February

2003, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) gave the licence to Kotak Mahindra

Finance Ltd., the group's flagship company, to carry on banking business.


It offers a wide range of banking products and financial services for

corporate and retail customers through a variety of delivery channels and

specialized subsidiaries in the areas of personal finance, investment

banking, life insurance, and wealth management.

Kotak Mahindra Bank has a network of 1,336 branches and 2,044 ATMs

spread across 702 locations in the country.[4] In 2016, it was the third

largest private bank in India by market capitalization.[5]



The Banking System in India consists of :

Reserve Bank

Development Banks

Public Sector Bank.

Foreign Banks

Private Sector Banks

Cooperative Banks

Regional Rural Banks

The Reserve Bank of India

The Reserve Bank of India is the Central Bank of the Country and came

into being by the Reserve Bank of India Act 1934. It was nationalized in


The bank that issues and regulates the issue of currency in India

The banker to the Government of India and the State

governments. It manages the public debt. It has the obligation to

transact the banking business of the Central Government. It

undertakes to accept money on behalf of the Government and make

payment on its behalf.

The bankers bank. Commercial banks maintain their current

account with the Reserve Bank of India.

The bank that manages the volume of credit created by the

commercial banks to ensure price stability.

The bank that manages the external value of the currency

(Indian rupee)

The lender of Last Resort. It will lend to banks in trouble.

Development Banks

These were set up to give long term finance for the development of the

country. These are the Industrial Finance Corporation of India and the

Industrial Development Bank of India, The Industrial Reconstruction

Bank of India and the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural

Development. A former development bank, the Industrial Credit and

Investment Corporation of India Ltd. by a reverse merger in 2002,

became a normal commercial bank. It is expected that the other

development banks, having outlived their utility would also be either

converted to commercial banks or merged with commercial banks.

Public Sector Banks

These are banks which the Government either owns or has a majority

stake in.

The largest is the State Bank of India,which was formed by the merger of

the Presidency Banks the Bank of Bengal, the Bank of Bombay and the

Bank of Madras in 1921. It was then known as the Imperial Bank. It was

nationalized in 1955 by the passing of the State Bank of India Act, 1955.

It has seven subsidiaries or associates.

The other nationalized banks came into being on July 19, 1969 when

Mrs. Gandhis Government nationalized fourteen banks that had deposits

of Rs. 50 crores or more. On April 15, 1980, six more banks having

demand and time liabilities of not less than Rs.200 crores were

nationalized. This was done to take banking to the villages and serve the

developmental needs of all sectors of the economy.

Foreign Banks

These are branches of banks incorporated outside India.

The larger ones that have been operating in India for many years are

Standard Chartered Bank, Citibank, American Express Bank, ABN Amro,

BNP Paribas and Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation.

In 1995/ 96 many other foreign banks (optimistic in view of Indias

liberalization) opened branches in India. However, after banking began to

become increasingly competitive and margins began to squeeze coupled

with large non-performing assets, many banks closed their branches.

These include Dresdner Bank, Comerz Bank, KBC Bank and

Commercial Bank of Siam.

Private Sector Banks

These banks are not government owned or controlled. Their shares are

freely traded in the Stock Markets.

These may be divided into:

Old Private Sector Banks such Federal Bank, Dhanalakshmi

Bank, Catholic Syrian Bank

New generation Banks such as HDFC Bank, IDBI Bank,

UTI Bank and ICICI Bank. Those have permitted to open

provided they had a capital of Rs. 100 crores.

Cooperative Banks

Cooperative Banks are those that created by a group of individuals to

support either a community or a religious group. They operate in

metropolitan, urban and semi urban centers to cater to the need s of small


These are controlled by the RBI and by State Cooperative Acts.

In recent years these have been under a cloud on account as several

(particularly in Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh) collapsed under controversy.

They were used as vehicles by individuals to finance activities which did

not succeed.

Regional Rural Banks

These came into being on October 2, 1975 when 5 regional rural banks

were established under what became the Regional Rural Banks Act 1975.

These were to bridge the gap in rural credit granting loans and advances

to small and marginal farmers, artisans, small entrepreneurs and persons

of small means engaged in trade, commerce, industry or other productive

activities within their area of operation.

Local Area Banks

Local Area Banks came into existence in 1999 and licences were given

for these banks as it was felt that regular commercial banks were not

financial the rural/ agricultural sector adequately. Licences have given to

open branches in three districts. Branches in urban/ semi urban areas have

granted only after ten branches were established in rural areas/ villages.

Four licences were in total granted two in Andhra, one in Punjab and

one in Gujarat. They have opened with an initial capital of Rs. 5 crores.

A Report issued in 2002 has recommended that the capital should

increased to Rs. 25 crores and that these be permitted to operate in six

Finance Ltd, the group's flagship company was given the license to carry

created banking history since Kotak Mahindra Finance Ltd. is the first

nonbanking finance company in India to convert itself in to a bank as

Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd. Today, the bank is one of the fastest growing

How did banking originate? What activity resulted in Banking, as we

know it today? To answer these questions it is necessary to step back into

history to several thousands of years and study its origins.


Man was, in the dawn of history, simple and self-sufficient. He lived in

caves, killed animals when hungry and he had no other wants. As time

passed, men began living in villages and started to till the ground. Often

the produce of a farmers fields was more that he required. Similarly, a

fisherman often caught more than his family required. In the ideal

situation, the farmer would exchange his produce for fish with the

fisherman. This exchange is known as barter. And in the ideal world they

would both be content. However, a complication could and would arise if

the farmer did not require or want fish. If the farmer required a plough

and the smith requires steel there would be tremendous and horrendous

difficulty in matching those that individuals had with that which they

needed. And it was on account of this difficulty of meeting needs that the

barter system surrendered to money.


Money was created or rather born to reduce the value of the items people

had to a common denominator to facilitate exchange of products to

satisfy needs. The fisherman would sell his fish as would the farmer for

money. The farmer would then armed with the money he has in hand

purchase a plough. The fisherman with the money he has received, would

buy the food he needs for his family.

The earliest form of money was bones on which marks were made to

distinguish between values. Metals then began to be used the most

popular being gold, silver and bronze. Symbols, sizes and signs on these

differed from time to time and from country to country. As men began to

travel from country to country to exchange goods and to trade, banking

was born.

The term money is derived from the temple of Juno Moneta which was

used by the Romans as a mint for their coins.


Banks were born to facilitate trade to lend monies to purchase goods, to

store monies and to change currencies. Banking began thousands of years

ago. The Assyrians, Babylonians and Ancient Greeks practiced simple

forms of banking safekeeping, exchanging foreign coins and making

loans mainly in connection with trade. Temples such as those of

Ephesus and Delphi were Greek banking institutions. The Romans did

not have State Banks but had minute regulations regarding private banks.

These were calculated to create utmost confidence in the system. Ancient

Rome had two types of bankers those who made loans and those who

exchanged foreign monies.

The term bank is derived from the Italian word banco which means

bench. The early bankers, the Jews of Lombard, transacted their business

at benches in the market place and later in inns and taverns. In those days

if a banker failed, his banco or bench was broken, hence the term

bankrupt. Another opinion is that the term bank evolved from the

German word back meaning a joint stock fund which was Italianised

into banco. As many of these inns/taverns were known by the signs

they had such as eagle, crossed swords etc.

Growth Story of Kotak Group




As a young 26-year old entrepreneur in 1985, Uday Kotak started Kotak

Capital Management Finance Ltd. (which later became Kotak Mahindra

Finance Ltd). The vision was to eventually become a banking company.

Private Indian banks were not even a speck on the horizon at that time.

On 22nd March 2003, Kotak Mahindra Finance Ltd. became the first

non-banking financial company (NBFC) in India's corporate history to be

converted into a bank.

Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd. (KMBL) is regarded as one of the most

efficient and high performing banks in India, built on the principles of

simplicity and prudence. Uday remains unfazed by market euphoria and

his 'basics of banking' approach has ensured that the loan book is of high

quality and the bank is well-capitalised. In a journey spanning nearly

three decades, Uday has not only helped the company grow to this scale

but also earn respect.

Today, Kotak Mahindra Group, a first generation enterprise, with

networth of Rs. 33,361 crore (approx. US$ 5 billion), has a global

presence, employs over 46,500 people and is recognised as one of the

topmost employers in India. The group has the distinction of providing a

40% CAGR to its shareholders over a 30 year period. The core of the

business model is 'concentrated India, diversified financial services'.

Uday has a strong focus on community development and inclusive

growth which is reflected by the Group's initiatives to provide low cost

services to rural customers and its welfare programmes. Uday feels

strongly that education is key to the alleviation of the social malaise

afflicting India's under-privileged. In a bid to address this issue, he has

established the Kotak Education Foundation that focuses on the

educational needs of underprivileged children.

Uday holds a Bachelor's degree in Commerce and an MBA from Jamnalal

Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai.

Business Processes

Transaction Banking

Kotak Mahindra Bank's Transaction Banking is the process of

optimisation of receivables and payables while ensuring predictability in

the cash flows. In a geographically large country like India, which has a

complex financial clearing system, you will find it increasingly

challenging to process collections and payments across dispersed

business locations. This results in delayed realization and uncertainty in

the funds flow resulting in additional borrowing and resultant increased

borrowing cost.

Efficient Transaction Banking is about 'getting funds in time', quick

transfers, faster realization of local and outstation cheques, easy

disbursements, account reconciliation, controlled processes and

customised MIS. Transaction Banking eliminates the inherent delays of

the traditional funds transfer mechanism, enhancing liquidity and

ensuring optimum planning and utilization of funds.

The Bank's Cash Management Services include the following basic


1. Collection or Receivables Management

2. Payment or Payables Management

3. Liquidity and Investment Management Services

Feature and Benefits

1. Optimal management of payables and receivables

2. Efficient cash flow management

3. Financial Benefits: You can reduce interest cost on borrowings by

getting access to your funds faster. Additionally you will be able to

improve the firm's liquidity position by realizing cheques sooner,

and also positively impacting the Balance Sheet and Financial


4. Operational Benefits: You will be able to manage Banking &

Treasury functions with a significant reduction in resource-costs as

The origin of the State Bank of India goes back to the first decade of the

nineteenth century with the establishment of the Bank of Calcutta in

Calcutta on 2 June 1806. Three years later the bank received its charter

and was re-designed as the Bank of Bengal (2 January 1809). A unique

institution, it was the first joint-stock bank of British India sponsored by

the Government of Bengal. The Bank of Bombay (15 April 1840) and the

Bank of Madras (1 July 1843) followed the Bank of Bengal. These three

banks remained at the apex of modern banking in India till their

amalgamation as the Imperial Bank of India on 27 January 1921.

Primarily Anglo-Indian creations, the three presidency banks came into

existence either as a result of the compulsions of imperial finance or by

the felt needs of local European commerce and were not imposed from

outside in an arbitrary manner to modernize India's economy. Their

evolution was, however, shaped by ideas culled from similar

developments in Europe and England, and was influenced by changes

occurring in the structure of both the local trading environment and those

in the relations of the Indian economy to the economy of Europe and the

global economic framework.


Axis Bank was the first of the new private banks to have begun

operations in 1994, after the Government of India allowed new private

Corporation of India (GIC) and other four PSU insurance companies, i.e.

National Insurance Company Ltd., The New India Assurance Company

Ltd., The Oriental Insurance Company Ltd. and United India Insurance

Company Ltd.

The Bank today is capitalized to the extent of Rs. 359.76 crores with the

public holding (other than promoters) at 57.79%.

The Bank's Registered Office is at Ahmedabad and its Central Office is

located at Mumbai. The Bank has a very wide network of more than 853
branches and Extension Counters (as on 30th June 2009). The Bank has a

network of over 3723 ATMs (as on 30th June 2009) providing 24 hrs a

day banking convenience to its customers. This is one of the largest ATM

networks in the country.

The Bank has strengths in both retail and corporate banking and is
