Report on Indian Banking Sector

Bharatbook launches a new report on "Indian Banking Sector". Although there is a restrictive entry/expansion for private and foreign banks in India, the banks have increased their presence and business over last 5 years.

Online PR News – 20-October-2009 – – Report on Indian Banking Sector report ( ) elucidates facts about the Indian Banking Sector, supplemented by latest statistical data and comprehensive analysis. The report, comprising of 16 chapters provides an in-depth view of the Banking Sector with FY09 result analysis and Statistics on banks from FY04-FY08.
Indian Banking sector is dominated by Public sector banks (PSBs) which accounted for 72.6% of total advances for all SCBs as on 31st March 2008. PSBs have rapidly expanded their foot prints after nationalisation of banks in India in 1969 and further in 1980.
Peculiar characteristic of Indian banks unlike their western counterparts such as high share of household savings in deposits (57.4% of total deposits), adequate capitalisation, stricter regulations and lower leverage makes them less prone to financial crisis, as was seen in the western world in mid FY09.
The Scheduled Commercial Banks (SCBs) in India have shown an impressive growth from FY04 to the mid of FY09. Total deposits, advances and net profit grew at CAGR of 19.6%, 27.4% and 20.2% respectively from FY03 to FY08. Banking sector recorded credit growth of 33.3% in FY05 which was highest in last 2 and half decades and credit growth in excess of 30% for three consecutive years from FY04 to FY07, which is best in the banking industry so far. Increase in economic activity and robust primary and secondary markets during this period have helped the banks to garner larger increase in their fee based incomes.
A significant improvement in recovering the NPAs, lowest ever increase in new NPAs combined with a sharp increase in gross advances for SCBs translated into the best asset quality ratio for banking sector in last two decades. Gross NPAs to gross advances ratio for SCBs decreased from the high of 14% in FY2000 to 2.3% in FY08.

With in the group of banks, foreign and private sector banks grew at higher rate than the industry from FY03 to FY08 primarily because of lower base effect and rapid expansion undertaken by these banks. In FY09, overall growth in credit and deposits was led by PSBs. However, growth of private and foreign banks was significantly lower in FY09 due to their high exposure to stressed sectors and problem at parent level for foreign banks.
