Some factors of change are common all over the world, e.g., technological development, increasing globalization, deregulation and re-regulation, customer awareness and resultant expectations, competition and consequent pressure on profit margins etc. Some factors, however, are country-specific, e.g., in case of India, nationalization of banks, thrust on financial inclusion, difficulties of raising additional capital etc. History has shown that Indian Banking, has been able to withstand various changes in the economic environment successfully, the last being global financial crisis.
