10 Best Private Sector Banks in India

    Banking in India has been traditionally dominated by the public sector banks. Though the major public sector banks still rule the roost in the banking space in India, private sector banks have been growing in leaps and bounds during the last 3 decades and are now primed to challenge the dominance of the public sector banks. The Nedungadi Bank was the first private sector bank in India which was founded in 1899 by Rao Bahadur TM in Kozhikode, Kerala. With the emergence of new private sector banks post the liberalisation of 1991, not only have new private sector banks emerged but the old private sector banks which were languishing and ailing for quite some time got a new lease of life. Private sector banks have been at the forefront of innovation and technology in the Indian banking space and have been able to grow much faster than the public sector banks who have been second best in leading the charge. We have put together a list of the 10 Best Private Sector Banks in India.
