List of Registered Banks in India

Though this article might not meet your expectations with respect to the kind of data that you are used to see in my blog, the purpose of this article is two fold:

1. To list out all the Registered Banks in India &
2. For you to find out if a Bank is authorized to carry out banking operations in India.

The list below is the list of Banks that are registered with the Reserve Bank of India and are Authorized to carry out banking operations within the bounds of the Indian Nation.

There are cases where people feel that an entity is a bank and might deposit money, while they might not be registered/authorized to collect deposits. So, as customers it is our responsibility to validate the credentials of the entity with which we deposit our cash.

The list below is correct as of May 2012 (Original Article Written in April 2011).

  1. After searching for a long time i got a proper list from you.Really thanks dude.

  2. Unable to find in the list of banks

    1. Anonymous, there are numerous cooperative banks in India and listing them all down would be a very lengthy and time consuming job. I just listed down the prominent and noteworth cooperative banks in the article above.

      I did some quick search and have added abhyudaya, Jankalyan and Ratnaker banks. I could not find the other two names and so, if you can give me links to the main websites of these banks, i will take a look at what category they fall into and then add in the list above.

      thank you in advance for help.

      Note: I found an Apna bank in Pakistan. This article is only for banks in India.


  3. does abhudaya bank give pension to its employees
