The financial system in India comprises of Commercial Banks including Public Sector, Private Sector and Foreign Banks, Co-operative Banks, Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) and various other institutions in the areas of Insurance, Mutual Funds and Government Securities. Commercial Banks are playing a very important role in the financial system and payment systems. Banks are 'special' as financial intermediaries critical for mobilizing public saving and for deploying them to provide safety and return to savers. The deployment of funds mobilized through deposits involves Banks in financing economic activity and providing a lifeline for the payment system. The health of an economy largely depends upon a healthy Banking system, which in turn depends upon a sound asset structure. The banking sector reforms in India during the post-liberalization period, mostly focused on improving the efficiency of the banking sector by incorporating prudential norms for income recognition, asset classification and provisioning and through integrating international standards.
