Recently declared as a megacity, Bangalore or Bengaluru is the capital city of the Indian state of Karnataka. With a population crossing ten million, Bangalore is now considered to be the third populous among all the cities in India. It is located on the Deccan Plateau in the peninsular region of southern India. Although a highly cross-cultural crowd dwells in this city, the natives of Bangalore are called Kannadigas and they speak in Kannada. Bangalore is a major fast-growing metropolis in India. The city is also commonly referred to as the "Silicon Valley of India" or the "IT capital of India" as it has been the center of the IT boom in India. Many Indian technological organizations such as ISRO, HAL, Infosys, etc. are all headquartered in the city. This demographically diverse city has supported many flourishing start-up companies as well. The welcoming weather of Bangalore is indeed a relief to the hard-working people of the city; however, the traffic situation in the city is quite notorious. Bangalore has also become a seat of education, with pristine academic institutions such as The IISc or the Indian Institute of Science, the IIMB or the Indian Institute of Management (Bangalore), the National Law School of India and many more prestigious academies being based in the city.
The Deutsche Bank was founded in 1870, and its first domestic branches were opened in Bremen and Hamburg in 1871 and 1872. The branch opening in London was a prime necessity for the establishment of credit for the German trade. Significant projects in the early years of the bank included the Northern Pacific Railroad in the US and the Baghdad Railway in 1888. In Germany, the bank was contributory in the financing of steel company Krupp (1879) bond offerings. In the 1890s, the new period of expansion at Deutsche Bank began. The bank associated with some giant regional banks, making its entry into leading industrial regions of Germany. Joint ventures were symptomatic of the concentration then underway in the German banking industry. Having domestic branches of its own was still something of a rarity for Deutsche Bank; in 1886 the Frankfurt branch established and the Munich branch in 1892, while further offices were opened in 1901 in Dresden and Leipzig. The formation of Deutsche Ueberseeische Bank in 1886 was gently pressurized by the foreign ministry, and three years later the stake was taken in the newly established Deutsch-Asiatische Bank. But the success of those companies showed that their existence was commercially justified.
