Fact check[edit]

There are so many mistakes in this article. To identify two -

-: How can the Union Bank fail in 1840 as a consequence of the economic crisis of 1848-49???
-: The HSBC was founded in 1865 in London. How the hell could it have started its operations in calcutta in the 1850s???

Number[edit]

We should be current - there are currently only nationalized banks, and this is an old News: more than a decade before New Bank of India was absorbed into Punjab National Bank. --Bhadani 13:45, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Title[edit]

What do people think about making the title of this article tie up with the Category:Banks of India? It would make it the "this category is about.." article, in the same way as Category:Banks of the United Kingdom has one. Thoughts? Ian3055 15:46, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Early history[edit]

I think some contents from the lead sentences may be integrated into the section Early History, or vice versa - perhaps, both the sections (lead sentences and early history just created by me) require a little tweaking to make the flow smooth. --Bhadani (talk) 17:03, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Moreover, we may create a separate page for List of banks in India, instead of loading the page with many red links and a lengthy list. I shall be doing this very shortly or request someone to do this if he/ she wants. Thanks. --Bhadani (talk) 17:08, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Islamic Banking?[edit]

I'm pretty sure there was Islamic banking before the 18th century in India...

Lead paragraph[edit]

I find that the lead paragraph of this article is missing. Let us try to do something. --Bhadani (talk) 16:59, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
