The Reserve Bank of India would like to assure the general public that Indian banking
system is safe and stable.’

– RBI Statement, 1 October 2019

Why did India’s central bank have to issue an unprecedented statement to that effect?

In Pandemonium: The Great Indian Banking Tragedy, bestselling author Tamal Bandyopadhyay takes you
in search for the answer. It is a definitive insider story on the rot in India’s banking system – how many
promoters easily swapped equity with debt as bank managements looked the other way to protect their
balance sheets, until the RBI began waging a war against ballooning bad loans. The same troubles quickly

spilled over to India’s mushrooming non-banking financial companies, which were quick to spot the postdemonetisation
easy liquidity and banks’ reluctance to lend, prompting them to make the cardinal sin of
borrowing short to lend long.

What really ails public sector banks, the backbone of India’s financial system? Is it the government
ownership itself, or how this owner actually behaves? And just when many were rooting for privatisation
as a way out, powerful bankers such as Chanda Kochhar and Rana Kapoor exposed the soft underbelly of
seemingly more efficient and profitable private banks of India.

A timely and insider look at dramatic forces reshaping banking in Asia’s third-largest economy, this book
is a bird’s-eye view of Indian banking and also a fly-on-wall documentary. A must-read to understand
contemporary India’s challenges and economic potential.
