Soon after Independence in 1947, Government of India followed a policy of social control of important financial institutions. As a result of state domination, India's financial system was characterised by barriers to entry, control over pricing of financial assets, high transaction costs and restrictions on movement of funds from one market segment to another. It was in this backdrop that wide-ranging financial sector reforms were introduced as an integral part of the economic reforms programme started in early 1990s. The present book explains and examines at length the changes which have swept India's financial sector over the last 60 years since Independence, with focus on post-1991 period. The book is organised into 9 parts, each part containing chapters/information relevant to the theme of that part.
