Business today is back with its prestigious India’s Best Banks listing in association with KPMG. The two-part study, Quantitative and Qualitative, accounts for over 35 parameters to rank the performances of Indian Banks. After an insightful look into the data, it was ICICI bank that emerged as India’s best Bank. Going forward the banking sector is expected to face some headwinds to make loan growth sustainable, keeping in account global recession and slowdown. Also, everyone’s anticipation for Union Budget is growing with each passing day. Experts believe that the approach for this year’s budget will be same as previous years. Declining GDP growth rate is a concern which the government has to look after by aiming to increase the domestic consumption and incentivize private infrastructural investment which until now had bitter experiences in the sector.
Another highlight of the conversation is SEBI gearing up to bring third-party listing agencies under their scanner. This comes in due to underwhelming performances for companies that went public recently which is in straight contrast as per the rosy picture of them that these agencies painted.
