Home >> Miscellany - Reports of the Bank
 

The Bank publishes two statutory reports, the Annual Report of the Bank and the Report on Trend and Progress of Banking in India. These reports along with the Report on Currency and Finance are documents that not only relate to the Bank's operations during a given year but also reflect economic events, matters related to banking and policy related to the financial sector, and in a broader way the milieu of the times. They, thus, constitute an important source material relating to India's financial and economic history.
