IDBI Bank Ltd., today, is operating as a full service universal bank that serves the customers from all segments.
IDBI Bank Ltd. has inherited a rich legacy from its predecessor entity - Industrial Development Bank of India – which was an apex Development Financial Institution (DFI) in the realm of industry from July 1, 1964 to September 30, 2004. As a DFI, the erstwhile IDBI stretched its canvas beyond mere project financing to cover an array of services that contributed towards balanced geographical spread of industries, development of identified backward areas, emergence of a new spirit of enterprise and evolution of a deep and vibrant capital market.
On October 1, 2004, the erstwhile IDBI was converted into a banking company – IDBI Ltd. - to undertake the entire gamut of banking activities while continuing to play its secular DFI role. Desirous of fuelling its business growth, IDBI Ltd. merged its subsidiaries - the erstwhile IDBI Bank, IDBI Home Finance Ltd., IDBI Gilts, the erstwhile United Western Bank Ltd., with itself over a period of time. IDBI Ltd. also changed its name to IDBI Bank Ltd. to reflect its widened business functions.
As an universal bank, IDBI Bank Ltd. touches the lives of millions of Indians through a wide array of banking products and services. Besides, the Bank has an established presence in associated financial sector businesses including capital market, investment banking and mutual fund business. The Bank’s very business philosophy is characterised by the commitment to provide relevant financial solutions, ensure maximum customer convenience through easy access to branches and ATMs as well as digital offerings and excellence in customer service.
Going forward, IDBI Bank is strongly committed to work towards emerging as ‘most preferred and trusted bank enhancing value for all stakeholders’.
