Bandhan Financial, IDFC win banking licences, India Post in the queue.

Differentiated banking will make its debut in India with microfinance player Bandhan Financial Services (BFS) winning an in-principle approval to set up a bank. Infrastructure lender IDFC is the other aspirant to have made the cut, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said in a release on Wednesday. The central bank will hold consultations with the government on awarding a banking licence to India Post.
By selecting just two candidates this time around, the central bank would surely have left 23 others disappointed. They could, however, take heart from the fact that RBI governor Raghuram Rajan believes licences should be given more regularly or ‘on tap’ and can try their luck again.
While the need to further financial inclusion — a priority for the central bank — makes an MFI like Bandhan an obvious choice, IDFC’s skills as a specialised lender to the infrastructure space would have tilted the scales in its favour at a time when banks are struggling to recover loans to the sector. As Shikha Sharma, managing director & chief executive officer, Axis Bank, pointed out, “Infrastructure is critical for the country and we need strong and stable institutions to make the build-out happen.” Sharma welcomed the new entrants, saying, “It’s always good to have good competition.”
