Background of Federal Bank India

Previously known as Travancore Federal Bank Limited, the Federal Bank Limited in its entire span of customer services has seen both ups and downs. The bank started with an auction-chitty business along with other banking transactions related to agriculture and industry. In the year 1945, the paid-up capital of the bank touched Rs.71000 and a new Board of Directors was constituted. During this period, the bank also incorporated new Articles of Association. The same year its branch was opened at Aluva.

Subsequently, Federal Bank came with its branches in Angamally (1946) and Perumbavoor (1947). However, it came with a massive expansion plan in the years 1975 and 1976 by opening 53 and 42 branches respectively.

From that time onwards till today, the bank has continued to incorporate the effective changes to ensure smooth banking experience for its customers.
