Many a readers of this blog of mine and several others requested me to write something on the background history of State Bank of India for their information and knowledge. I have elaborated this topic in my book ‘Beyond the barriers’, which is in publication stage. I have also briefly covered this topic in another blog of mine, the readers of which are much different geographically. The coverage so made is of course in respect of the banking industry as a whole plus some other organisations in the context of trade union movement in the country and abroad, but it quite includes State Bank of India in particular. I am requesting my readers through this post to peruse the link given below to get a snap sort of appraisal in regard to the anxiety they have on the subject. Their reactions on the topic are welcome.
