Chapter 8 examines the role of private sector in the post-1991 period with reference to the Indian banking sector. Empirical analysis reveals that the private sector is increasing its share although public sector banks still dominate the Indian banking sector. Private sector banks including foreign banks are also showing their impact on the sector in terms of improving the efficiency of public sector banks, and reducing their operating expenses and non-performing assets. Notwithstanding numerous policy measures such as priority sector lending, Indian banks—public as well as private sector banks-are yet to expand financial access to agriculture and small enterprises.
