Mumbai, fondly referred to as ?Bombay? by many, is not only the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra but is also the financial and commercial capital of the country. It lies on the Konkan coast, along the western border of India. It is probably the most populous city in India and serves as a home to the wealthiest Indians. Mumbai hosts the highest number of billionaires and millionaires amongst all the prime Indian cities. Being an economic hub, the city promises a plethora of opportunities in terms of employment, and thus it is a much-coveted destination for job-seekers from all over the nation. The Indian film industry, popularly known as ?Bollywood?, operates out of Mumbai. Mumbai also serves as a popular tourist destination as its outskirts provide all travelers with a magnificent combination of serene beaches, exotic hill stations on the Western Ghats. The tropical climate of Mumbai has a harmonious blend of warm, chilly and rainy days. The infamous Mumbai rain floods the city every year but doesn?t dampen the quintessential energetic spirit of the city. This Indian city nurtures the passion of dedicated learners and workers; it is often considered as the city that never sleeps.
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.
