Posted by ChEthAn in

Recently 'The Banker', a part of the Financial Times group figured out five Indian banks in the list of the world's top 1,000 banks in 2009.

According to them the top five banks in the world are JP Morgan Chase followed by Bank of America, CITI Group, Royal Bank of Scotland and HSBC holdings. As per my knowledge HSBC is the only bank that has not received any government support till now.

Coming back to the indian banks State Bank of India holds the first position among the Indian banks and ranked 64th position and ICICI bank ranked 81st among global banks. Punjab National Bank , HDFC Bank and Bank of India at 239, 242 and 263, respectively :) .

Its an great achievement from Indian banks to hold postions in world banking system.. This clearly shows that our regulatory systems are really in strong shape.

The units will be available at Rs. 10/- per unit (subject to applicable load) during the New Fund Offer and Continuous offer for Units at NAV based prices.

It pre- dominantly invests in the infrastructure sector, with the government spending more on the same and foreign investments coming into Indian infrastructure companies. Infrastructure spending has witnessed a sharp acceleration, with most of the segments in the economy constrained in terms of capacity availability. Riding on the back of the fourth consecutive year of 8%+ GDP growth, a balanced increase in the gross capital formation (GCF) in infrastructure as a proportion of GDP emerges as the most important key in sustaining high economic growth. Currently, the GCFI is at 5% of GDP. As per the Planning Commission, the GCFI need to be increased to 9% of the GDP to sustain growth momentum in the economy.

Infrastructure sector plays important role in country’s development and GDP growth. India has already negotiated the difficult transition from public infrastructure creation to a market determined model. This will give room for more rural developments and spending.
