Officially known as the NCT or the National Capital Territory, Delhi is a union territory and also the capital city and of India. Hence, it is the center of the National Capital Region (NCR). Although it is a union territory, the administration of Delhi closely resembles that of any Indian state as it has its own high court, legislature and an executive council headed by a Chief Minister. Delhi gives a tough competition to Mumbai in terms of population and wealth. It is the second wealthiest city in India, closely following Mumbai. It is also a tourism hub for its famous ancient historical relics. Heritage sites like the Qutub Minar, Humayun?s Tomb, Jama Masjid are hotspots for active tourism. Moreover, Delhi connects travelers to exciting destinations in the northern Himalayan Mountains. The city experiences a sub-tropical semi-arid climate ? the summer and winter months starkly contrast each other and are marked by temperatures at extreme ends. The city has an excellent infrastructure in terms of transport and connectivity. However, the pollution levels in the city have reached alarming levels of late. The people of Delhi, commonly known as ?Delhiites,? lovingly call their city ?Dilli? according to the Hindi pronunciation. Home to people from different parts of India, Delhi is indeed a melting pot of various cultures.
The Indian Bank was founded on 15th August,1907. Fourteen top banks were nationalized by the Indian Government on 19th July,1969, including Indian Bank. As a result of the nationalization, the branches of nationalized Indian banks in Malaysia were forbidden to continue operations as parent branches. At that time, Indian Bank had three offices. In 1973, the three branches merged to establish United Asian Bank Berhad and take over their Malaysian operations. After the nationalization, Indian Bank was left with only two foreign offices, one in Colombo and the other in Singapore. The International expansion resumed in 1978 with Indian Bank becoming a technical adviser to PT Bank Rama in Indonesia. Two years later, Indian Bank, BOB, and UBI established Indian Union Bank International Finance, in Hong Kong. The three banks had an equal share in the joint venture; the Indian Banks Chairman became the first Chairman of IUB International Finance. In May 1980, the Indian Bank also opened a foreign currency unit at its branch in Colombo. In 1981, the Indian Bank set up its first Regional Rural Bank, in Chittoor.
