About Catholic Syrian Bank:

Catholic Syrian Bank Ltd started nine decades ago on 26th November, 1920 at Thrissur, which in later years acquired the unique distinction of being a centre with the highest concentration of banks in the South. During the first two decades of its functioning, the Bank concentrated only in Kerala. Banks and credit institutions which proliferated especially in Kerala received a jolt and many of them came to their doom following the crash of the Travancore National Quilon Bank in 1938 followed by Palai Central Bank in1960. In August 1969, the Bank was included in the Second Schedule to the Reserve Bank of India Act 1934. In 1975, the Bank attained the status of "A" Class Scheduled Bank when its total Deposits crossed Rs.25 crores. The Bank has also geared up its machinery to increase its market share of corporate finance in the days to come. Their contribution to the growth of this institution has been invaluable. The Bank has a very dynamic team on its Board of Directors who is guiding the destiny of the Bank leading to growth and prosperity. At present, the bank has a network of 431 branches and 231 ATMs across India. The Bank also plans to open more number of branches in a phased manner.
