1. Explain the origin & development of banking in India.
Banking was in existence in India during the Vedic times (2000 BC to 1400 BC). Money lending was regarded as an old art and was practiced in the early Aryan days. Rina (debt) is often mentioned in the ‘Rig Veda’ reflecting a normal condition prevalent in the Vedic Society. The transition from money-lending to banking must have occurred before Manu-he states that a sensible man should deposit his money with a person of good family, good conduct, well-acquainted with law, wealth and honorable. There are references to lending and banking in the two epics namely Ramayana & Mahabharata. During that period banking had become a full fledged business More details pertaining to money lending in the Sutra period (7th century to 2nd century) are available from the Jatakas (Buddhist writings). Jatakas establish the existence of seths (money lenders) and contain several stories of Kings receiving financial help from the guilds. From these accounts it is evident that money lending, banking and trading were interlinked. In the Buddhist period even the Brahmins & Kshatriyas started taking banking as a business. Bills of exchange came into use in this period. The banking business was being carried out even in the Smriti period and the Smritis explained the methods of regulation of interest. The tradition from money-lending to banking appears to have taken place in the 2nd or 3rd century AD....
