RBI's Annual Report : 01 July 2009 to 30 June 2010
It is interesting to note that RBI's Financial Year ends on 30th June while all the Commercial Banks in the country close their accounts on the 31st March. This year's report has been released by RBI yesterday and here is the link as above. We may go through the details for an integrated picture of banking in India today.
I came to know that besides a Governor, four Deputy Governors (two are female members), RBI has seven Executive Directors in its administration. It is also interesting to know that RBI has set up three Colleges viz., Centre for Advanced Learning (formerly Bankers Training College) in Mumbai, College of Agricultural Banking-Pune, Reserve Bank Staff College-Chennai.
No doubt it is a very important document of 199 pages, with useful data and information for all the bankers, researchers, academicians, management students, policy makers, regulators and finance sector players too. The next document to follow from RBI is Trend and Progress of Banking in India 2010 likely to be released in November 2010 with all analysis.
