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.
Incorporated in 1911, the Central Bank of India was the first commercial bank which was entirely owned and managed by Indians. Sir Sorabji Pochkhanawala, founded the Bank as a result of his dream realization about the bank. The first Chairman was Sir Pherozesha Mehta of this pure swadeshi Bank. In fact, Sir Sorabji Pochkhanawala felt so proud about this bank that he proclaimed CBI as the "countrys asset and property of the nation." He also said that "CBI has been made on peoples faith and considers itself as the peoples bank." During the last 106 years of history, the Bank has faced challenges and threats. The CBI successfully transformed every threat into an opportunity of business and excelled over its competitors in the Banking industry. The Central Bank of India can be honestly mentioned as an all India bank, due to stretch of its vast network across all the 29 States and 6 Union Territories of India. Among the public sector banks, the Central Bank of India holds a very significant place on account of its 4715 Branches, 1 Extension counters, along with 10 Satellite Offices as on January 2018, at various centers throughout the length and breadth of the country.
