Abstract:
Indian economy is known for its perseverance, over the years it has faced continuous fluctuation, global economic depressions, and recent reforms of the government with ease. The Banking sector is considered as the lifeline of an economy. The Indian banking sector has its own reputation in the international level for maintaining its stability, even though the global economic environment and the emerging trends in financial sector pose challenges. There are many public sector banks in India; given this, consolidation and merger is a good idea in principle. The merger will help the banks to improve operational efficiency and customer services; this would involve synergies in the branch network, low-cost deposits and subsidiaries. But consolidation and merging of banks is not an easy task, because these are not normal times and with many public sector banks in distress and facing precarious situation. It is a challenging situation for the Government to identify stressed banks and motivate them to merge with a larger entity. In this research paper the author has tried to examine the scope, implications and drawbacks of the merger process, and also to identify the major challenges and consequences in its way.
