They are not even equipped to handle to the growing needs and to reciprocate them.. In order to serve the rural economy it was decided that to open state sponsored bank.
On July 1st 1955, State Bank of India was born when Impearl Bank of India took over all the state sponsored banks and integrated them. This all happened under an act which was passed in parliament. This act was taken to make India banking system more powerful. Later one more act was passed which allowed SBI to form the state banks as its subsidiary bank.
