Banking business in India is largely governed by the banking regulation act 1949 section 5(b) “a bank is a financial institution and a financial intermediary that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities either directly by loaning or indirectly through capital markets. A bank links together customers that have capital deficits and customer with capital surplus.” Without a sound and effective banking system in India it cannot have healthy economy. The banking system in India should not only be hassle free but it should be able to meet new challenges posed by technology and any other external and internal factors. Banking plays a significant role in financing the economic needs of the country.
