Bharat Overseas Bank
BOB was established in 1973 order to take over for the Bangkok branch of the Indian Overseas Bank. It was one of the few private banks that the Reserve Bank of India permitted to have a branch outside of India, and was the only bank representing India in Thailand. It was owned by seven banks (initial ownership figures in parentheses): Indian Overseas Bank (30%), Bank of Rajasthan (16%), Vyasa Bank (14.66%), Karur Vyasa Bank (10%), Federal Bank (19.67%), South Indian Bank (10%), and Karnataka Bank (8.67%), but in 2007 Indian Overseas Bank fully acquired the bank.
