In order to perform well in this section, one has to read every sentence carefully, concentrate on the meaning of the passage and then form a sequence at the level of idea. A few simple rules of grammar help to deliver the right order. Words, preferably sentence linkers like 'then', 'so', 'now', 'afterwards', 'finally', etc. help in understanding the sequence of events.

Banking Awareness : Indigenous Bankers

6 comments
Friends, in our previous post we have discussed about Non Institutional Credit Agencies. Today we shall discuss about one of it's constituent, Indigenous Bankers. 

Introduction :

Indigenous bankers conduct banking business. According to Indian Central Banking Enquiry Committee (1931) an indigenous banker is defined as "Any individual or private firm receiving deposits and dealing in hundies or lending money". One of the distinguishing features of indigenous bankers is that they provide credit by discounting hundies. Both money lenders and indigenous bankers are part of the unorganized money market. It is an ancient system of finance in India. Until formal system of commercial banking came into existence in the middle of the eighteenth century, major part of banking in India was carried through indigenous banking system.

Non Institutional Credit Agencies - Introduction

Leave a Comment
The Non-Institutional Credit Agencies are still playing a significant role in our financial system. The private moneylenders and indigenous bankers are the two important constituents of the non-institutional credit agencies. The private money lenders refers to those individuals who lend credit to the people who require it. Where as the indigenous bankers refers to those bankers who not only deal in "HUNDIS' but also lend money and or accept deposits from the public. Despite the dominant presence of various 'institutional credit agencies' the private money lenders and indigenous lenders are playing their due role in our financial system. Hence, there is a need to understand these two non-institutional credit agencies.

Banking Sector Reforms

4 comments
The Banking Industry in India has made a remarkable progress since nationalization of private commercial banks. A number of innovations were made in the field of social banking. Starting with the policy intervention by the Government of India to regulate the flow of bank credit into the priority sectors, poverty alleviation programs were financed by the banking system. In fulfilling these objectives, the profitability of the baking sector has declined after the second phase of nationalization. It has also suffered serious decline in productivity and efficiency. It is possible to defend the low profitability and poor financial conditions of public sector banks by referring to their commitment to social obligations such as, opening rural branches, setting up and subsidizing Regional Rural Banks, financing IRDP and other poverty alleviation programs at concessional rate of Interest. These arguments hold good, to a large extent, to the private sector scheduled commercial banks too. But these banks are making more profits than public sector banks.

Banking Awareness : Lead Bank Scheme

4 comments
After the Nationalization of commercial banks, government took the initiative for extending banking facilities in rural areas. Prof D. R. Gadgil, chairman of National Credit Study Group, recommended the adaptation of an "area approach" to evolve plans and programs for the development of an adequate  banking and credit structure in rural areas. As a sequel to this "area approach", recommended by pof Gadgil study group, the Lead Bank Scheme was introduced in December 1969. Under this scheme, a particular district is allotted to every nationalized commercial bank. The allotment of districts to the various banks was based on such criteria as the size of the banks, the adequacy of their resources for handling the volume of work. The lead banks initially conduct basic surveys in their respective lead districts and prepare district credit plans designed for the purpose of estimating credit needs of the concerned district so that physical and manpower resources available may be utilized properly. The district credit plans are linked with the development programs and are based on integrated development of the concerned district with special emphasis on the development of rural and backward areas. Since the introduction of lead bank scheme notable progress has been achieved by commercial banks in respect of branch expansion, deposit mobilization and credit deployment. Undoubtedly, the scheme is major step towards banks fulfilling their new social objectives and holds promise for making banks as effective instrument for bringing about economic development of the allotted districts.

Nationalization of Commercial Banks

4 comments
The Nationalization of commercial banks opened new vistas before the banking system as a whole and gave new dimensions of the economy. It assumes greater significance and implied a revolutionary change in the principles and objectives of the credit policy of commercial banks. In the field of commercial banking, the first seed of nationalization were sown in the year 1955 when the Govt. nationalized the imperial bank of India and named it as State Bank of India. In the year 1960, on the recommendations of the committee the All-India Rural Credit survey Eight State-association, banks were taken over as subsidiaries of the State Bank of India. The Govt. of India Nationalized 14 major commercial banks in July 1969 and another 6 banks in April 1980. The nationalization of July 1969 and April 1980 was a unique phenomenon, different from that of  nationalization of the RBI in 1949 or the nationalization of Imperial bank of India in 1955, as these were very modest having little socio-economic change in the country. Before and after Nationalization of commercial Banks, a section of people has described it as momentary and timely, while others criticized it as wrong and untimely.

Banking Awareness : History of Commercial Banking System In India

Friends, this is the Lesson 2 of our Banking Awareness study material for upcoming RBI Grade B and IBPS PO IV online exams. Please read the Introductory Lesson 1 from here before reading this.

The Government of India passed comprehensive Banking Regulation Act in 1949 for safeguarding the interest of depositors of Banking companies. According to the Act the definition of bank needs certain alterations, it now comprises acceptance of time liabilities and there is every reason for it to continue. The purpose of acceptance to deposits is strictly not relevant for the definition, though it is genuine for banking regulation. There is no need to distinguish between loans and deposits in the context of banking regulations. The definition of banking should cover all forms of acceptance of deposits from the public and banking regulations should deal with all types of banking.

Banking Awareness Study Material - Origin and Evolution of Banking

The origin of the banking system lies in the business of money changes in ancient periods. The Babylonians had developed a banking system as early as 2000 B.C. The practice of lending was widely prevalent in ancient Greece and Rome. The banking activities were developed in Italy. Later the banking activities were spread from Italy to Britain. Some of the Italian money lenders were settled at London and offered their services in 13th century A.D. Goldsmiths began to accept deposits of gold coins at London in the early 17th Century. The bank of England was started in 1694. Because of growing incidence of bank failures, the British government passed the Bank Act in 1826, which allowed the establishment of banks with unlimited liability. This led to the starting of joint stock banks in England.
