About Union Bank of India
Union Bank of India had started with a vision to turn into "the bank of first choice in our chosen area by building beneficial and lasting relationship with customers through a process of continuous improvement". Also referred to as UBI, because of which many confuse it with United Bank of India, the Union Bank of India has evolved into one of the largest state-owned banks in India. It is also included on the Forbes 2000 list.
BackgroundIn the year 1919, the Union Bank of India underwent a registration process as a limited company in Mumbai. Our Father of the nation 'Mahatma Gandhi' had done the inauguration of this bank. In 1947, UBI had 3 branches in Mumbai and 1 in Saurashtra. In1975, it was assigned the status of the national bank by the government. At that point of time, it was managing 240 branches across 28 states.
In its journey, UBI witnessed mergers with a private sector bank called Belgaum Bank and then Miraj State Bank. On the request of RBI, it acquired Sikkim Bank, which had 8 braches in the North-east at that time.
In the year 2007, Union Bank of India made its presence felt in the international arena by opening representative offices in the destinations of United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, Shanghai and Peoples Republic of China. Besides, it chose Hong Kong as the destination to open its very first branch outside India.
