The course on “Basics of Banking” deals with early history of commerce and trade starting with barter system, which is later culminated into the present day banking. It can be seen that an early version of banking system existed in India, as back as 300 B.C. The early writings of the travelers during the reign of Gupta and Mughal empire, give testimony to this fact.

They had mentioned about “rnapatra” , “adesha” an equivalent instrument to the present day cheque. The rich persons of those times, especially zamindars acted like money lenders and they were using such type of instruments including Bill of Exchange, which were freely traded between the traders.

By the opening of three Presidency banks in the early 19th century, at India’s three locations, true banking activities started. Till the set up of the RBI, these three banks dominated entire banking activities, including issue of notes. There were no regulator to supervise their activities. With the establishment of RBI, a lot of things in the banking Training system got improved and RBI encouraged financial entities to start new banks, although a few existed.

After the opening of State Bank of India, banking Training activities flourished and it became the first big bank, after merger of Imperial bank, which was by then a merged entity of all Presidency banks.

The post-independence era was a golden period for the banking industry. The first nationalization of banks in 1969, gave an impetus to open their branches at far-flung areas, where there were no banks, but only money lenders occupied the banking space, who used to exploit the poor and downtrodden people by charging high interest rates ; and also forcing them to pledge / mortgage their belongings and properties. They could hardly repay the loan. India saw tremendous change in the banking Training field after the second nationalization of banks, which have helped fresh industries to bloom, which were otherwise having short of funds.

The Role of RBI, its functions, rights etc. were discussed in detail. As a regulator and supervisor for all financial institutions in the country, it manages the country’s economic activity and stability in the domestic and international market. Under the Central Board, RBI Governor along with the Dy. Governors, Directors and other teams formulate Monetary Policy.
