Syndicate Bank

Syndicate Bank is one of the oldest commercial banks in India. It was formerly known as Canara Industrial and Banking Syndicate Limited during the time of its inception. It was established in Mangalore in 1925 by three prominent individuals Upendra Ananth Pai, Dr. T.M.A. Pai and Vaman Srinivas Kudva. Syndicate Bank along with 13 other major commercial banks was nationalized by the Indian Government on 19th July 1969. The bank starts its operations with just a mere capital of Rs. 8000/- under the leadership of the three visionaries. The primary objective of the bank was to offer financial support to the local weavers who were facing the crisis in the then handloom industry.
