List of Nationalised banks in India

What is Nationalized bank?
According to the IMF (International Monetary Fund), “Nationalisation” is defined as “government taking control over assets and over a corporation, usually by acquiring the majority or the whole stake in the corporation”.

In India, Banks are categorized into public sector banks and Private Sector banks. There are 27 public sector banks and around 93 commercial banks in India. Under public sector banks there are 19 nationalized bank, 6 are SBI and its associated banks and rest 2 are IDBI bank and Bharatiya Mahila Bank.

List of Nationalised banks in India:

Allahabad Bank
Andhra Bank
Bank of India
Bank of Baroda
Bank of Maharashtra
Canara Bank
Central Bank of India
Corporation Bank
Dena Bank

Oriental Bank of Commerce

Note : SBI is not nationalized bank. In 2008, the Government of India took over the RBI’s stake in the bank to avoid any conflict of interests within the RBI (which both owned and regulated the SBI). Now though the SBI and its subsidiaries are often referred to as a nationalized bank, it is a Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) and not one of the nationalized banks of India.

Similarly, IDBI Bank Ltd. is also a public sector bank but not one of the nationalized banks of India.

History of Nationalized banks :

  • India’s central bank, the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) was the first bank to be nationalized in 1949.
  • Then Imperial Bank of India was nationalized and re-christened as State Bank of India in 1955.In 1960 7 subsidiaries of SBI were also nationalized.
  • Then 14 Indian private banks were nationalized in 1969.
  • Then 6 more Indian private banks were nationalized in 1980. New Bank of India was later (in 1993) merged with Punjab National Bank.

What is Heart Attack?

A heart attack is a serious condition where the arteries supplying blood to your heart is unable to do so because of a blockage or other complications.

The average person waits 3 hours before seeking help for symptoms of a heart attack. Many heart attack patients die before they reach a hospital. The sooner the person gets to the emergency room, the better the chance of survival. Prompt medical treatment reduces the amount of heart damage.

Symptoms in adults may include:

  • If person is sweating profusely or pulse is low do not administer sorbitrate
  • Ask the person to cough
  • A person suffering from a heart attack should receive medical care .


  • If you smoke, quit smoking
  • Keep blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes in good control

Dry fruits | Importance of Dry Fruits | Why to eat dry fruits

What are dry fruits?

Dry fruit are fruit that are dried, either naturally or artificially by a machine, such as a dehydrator. Examples of dry fruits are Raisins, Almonds, Cashew and Dates.

A good dry fruit has a long shelf life and therefore it can be used as a good alternate to fresh fruit, which allows out of the season fruits to be available. Drying is a very well-known way to preserve fruit when there is no refrigerator.  Dried fruit is mostly used in baking mixes, breakfast cereals and making cake. Dried fruit is a healthy snack and since the public is ready to pay more for the snacks than staples, the quality is improving all the time.

Below is the details of few the dry fruits that we store in our house but eat rarely:


  • Raisins keep our skin healthy as they contain Resveratrol, an antioxidant that slows down skin ageing.

  • Eat in small quantities (3-6 pieces) daily to get a whole entourage of health benefits.
  • Almonds are effective in treating acne. This dry fruit is used in face packs as well.


  • Dates are very delicious and contains essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals, required for normal human growth, wear-n-tear and overall well being.
  • Dates are rich in fructose and dextrose, dates provide simple sugars easily and are a good way to start the day and jump-start the body’s metabolism.
  • Eat 1-2 medium-sized dates daily.


  • Cashews are also considered a rich source of dietary fibre and helps maintain healthy gums and teeth. Cashews are rich in antioxidants that help in the elimination of free radicals that may cause some cancer.
  • Cashew nut consumption helps the body utilize iron, eliminate free radicals, develop bone and connective tissue, and produce the skin and hair pigment melanin.
