Brief History

IDBI Bank was founded on July 1, 1964 under an Act of Parliament. It was established as a wholly owned subsidiary of RBI (Reserve Bank of India). The ownership was however transferred to the Government of India on February 16, 1976. It worked as the main financial institution, whose main goal was to coordinate with other institutions associated with financing, developing and promoting the industry. With the public issue of IDBI Bank released in July 1995, the share holding of the Government came down below 100%. However, the majority of the share was still owned by the government, which is currently 52.3%. IDBI Bank started offering a wide array of products and services to its customers, which covered entire range of industrial activities including services and manufacturing.

In September 2003, IDBI acquired the entire shareholding of Tata Finance Limited in Tata Home Finance Ltd. Since then, the fully owned housing subsidiary was known as 'IDBI Home Finance Limited'. Next year, on July 29, 2004, the Board of Directors of IDBI and IBDI Bank approved the merger of IDBI Bank with the Industrial Development Bank of India Ltd. IDBI Bank also acquired United Western Bank in 2006.
