About State Bank of India

State Bank of India was founded in 1806. It started its operations in Kolkata as Bank of Calcutta. It was the oldest commercial bank to be set up in the Indian subcontinent. In 1809, the name of the bank was changed to Bank of Bengal. It was the first of its kind and was also the first joint stock bank in British-ruled India which was backed by Government of Bengal. The Bank of Madras and the Bank of Bombay also followed the footsteps of the Bank of Bengal. The three banks merged as the Imperial Bank of India in 1921. The Government of India acquired the Imperial Bank of India in 1955 and changed the name to State Bank of India (SBI). The Reserve Bank of India had the majority stake which was taken over by the government in 2008.

In 1959, the State Bank of India (Subsidiary Banks) Act was passed, allowing SBI to take over 8 erstwhile State-affiliated banks as its subsidiaries (afterwards named Associates).

The current Chairman of SBI is Mr. O. P. Bhatt.
