Jump to navigation Jump to search

Banking was one of the most preferred lines of business in the princely states of Travancore and Cochin, and the Malabar Province of British India — the area that later became the state of Kerala — during the twentieth century. A list of some of the banks that operated in the region during the twentieth century are given below. Due to various reasons, most of them were either closed or amalgamated with other banks, leaving only a handful now.
