How did the Indian banking industry protect itself from the Lehman crash? What nearly wiped out the MFI sector in India? Why are public-sector banks suffering from a large pile of NPAs? What is the conflict between the RBI and the finance ministry? From Lehman to Demonetization is the epic story of banking in India in the last decade. The years from 2007 to 2017 were the most tumultuous and exciting time for this sector, which saw D. Subbarao, Raghuram Rajan and Urijit Patel as RBI governors working with finance ministers Pranab Mukherjee, P. Chidambaram and Arun Jaitley. What a decade it has been-from India's first MFI, SKS Microfinance, entering the capital market to the near death of the industry; the RBI giving the nod to twenty-three banks and becoming an inflation targeter; from 9 per cent economic growth for three consecutive years to the jolt of demonetization. Featuring essays and interviews with the who's who of this sector, including Deepak Parkeh, K.V. Kamath, Arundhati Bhattacharya, Chanda Kochchar, Aditya Puri, Shikha Sharma, Raghuram Rajan, U.K. Sinha and Viral Acharya, this book makes for a riveting read. If you had to read one book on banking in India, let this be it!
