Mergers And Acquisitions In Banking Sector Of India

Banking sector reforms in India are in the progress. Both Finance Ministry of India and Reserve Bank of India (RBI) are actively suggesting many far reaching reforms for banking and financial industry of India.

One of such reforms pertains to regulating mergers and acquisitions (M&A) pertaining to banking sector. Till now the Competition Commission of India (CCI) has a say in the M&A pertaining to banking companies.

However, with the recent proposed amendments in the Banking Regulations Act, 1949, only RBI would have power to regulate M&A pertaining to banking sector. In fact, the proposed amendments have already been approved by Cabinet of India.
