Banking in Karnataka


The state of Karnataka, particularly the coastal districts of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi, historically and collectively known as South Canara, is called the cradle of banking in India. This is because seven of the country's leading banks, Canara Bank, e-Syndicate Bank, e-Corporation Bank, e-Vijaya Bank, Karnataka Bank, Ing Vysya Bank and the e-State Bank of Mysore originated from this state. The first five in the above list of banks were established in the districts of Udupi and Dakshina Kannada. These districts have one among the best distribution of banks in India - a branch for every 500 persons. Between 1880 and 1935, 22 banks were established in coastal Karnataka, nine of them in the city of Mangalore.
