The Indian economy has witnessed a tectonic shift across sectors in the post liberalization era, which has not only introduced regulatory course corrections, but has also favourably impacted sectoral performances and in the process changed the basic fabric of the foundations of the economy. Banking and Financial Services Sector, one of the core sectors responsible for driving the economic growth momentum, was deeply impacted on account of the metamorphosis. The new emerging face of the Banking & Financial Services sector in India is typified by a strong, transparent and resilient system. The industry is slated for a faster growth with the Central Government approval for increased private investments and foray of international players.

Foreign and multinational banks have entered the Indian banking scene in a big way, thus providing a big choice to the consumer.
