Full description: 

India's Financial Sector deals with the reform measures undertaken in the financial sector and their impact. The impact is assessed in terms of growth in activities, profitability, financial stability and financial inclusion among intermediaries such as banks, NBFCs and mutual funds, as well as in the financial markets. This book adds to the existing literature on the subject by offering an analysis of the impact that embraces not only the increased activities in the sector but also the issue of financial stability and financial inclusion. The discussion is divided in three parts. The first part deals with financial intermediaries, the second explores the primary and secondary markets, and the third focuses on the internationalisation of the Indian financial market. Further topicality is provided to the discourse through the final section that discusses the recent turmoil in the Indian financial sector. The book is a rich source of information for all those who are interested to know about financial sector reforms, especially in the wake of the Percy Mistry Committee and Raghuram Rajan Committee reports. It will also help students and academics working in the fields of economics and development studies.
