BANK’S GENESIS

Established in 1920 as The Catholic Syrian Bank Limited, CSB Bank Limited had its modest beginning in November 1920 and is currently the oldest private sector bank in Kerala, celebrating its Centenary Year in 2020. During this century long period, the Bank has grown from strength to strength, adapting admirably to the far-reaching social, political and economic changes that have taken place during the period. The enterprising spirit inherited from its founding fathers has-been maintained throughout its history, which has blended the tradition of hard work and customer focus in its march to the new Millennium.

It was in the year 1969 that the Bank became a Scheduled Bank, as it was included in the Second Schedule of Reserve Bank of India Act. In 1972 it came out of its traditional bastion and opened its first branch in Chembur, Mumbai. “A Class” Scheduled Bank status was attained by the Banking the year 1975 and it entered the field of International Banking in the same year. Currently the bank has 417 branches (comprising 3 service branches and 3 asset recovery branches) and 310ATMs (including onsite and Offsite) spread across 18 states, 2 union territories. Out of the 432branches (excluding 3 service branches and 3 asset recovery branches). For efficient administration, the Bank has organized all its branches under 9 Zonal offices. The Bank delivers its products and services through multiple delivery channels that include branches, ATMs, internet and mobile banking.

While the Bank has a long operating history as a traditional bank, it is currently focusing on initiatives to transform itself into a full service contemporary bank. Towards this end, the Bank has recently undertaken a number of initiatives to enhance its business focus by upgrading processes, technology and human resources. As part of its transformation, the Bank has organized its operations under focused business areas; re-aligning, training and incentivizing employees; creating new products and services; increasing sales and marketing efforts; investing in technology and strengthening the monitoring and risk management framework.

We have rebranded ourselves in the year 2019 by change of name from The Catholic Syrian Bank Limited to “CSB Bank Limited”, to address region and community related perceptional issues associated with our previous brand name.
