The Reserve Bank of India ?Volume 1 (1935-1951), Volume 2 (1951-1967), Volume 3 (1967-1981): The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) was set up in 1935, under private ownership. Its charter was to maintain the monetary stability of India. In 1949, it was nationalized. The RBI manages India’s monetary and exchange rate policies, and the borrowings of the central and state governments. Regulation of commercial banking is another key responsibility. The first volume was printed in 1970 and covers the first sixteen years of the Bank’s working, 1935-51. The sixteen years can be divided into three distinct sub-periods ?1935-39 (the Formative Years), 1939-45 (the War Years) and 1945-51 (the Post-War Years). The second volume, printed in 1998, details the Bank’s role in mobilizing resources for central and state governments, regulating the banking system, and establishing an institutional infrastructure for agricultural and long-term industrial credit in India. It also covers developments in India’s external sector and concludes with an elaborate survey of evolving relations between the central bank and central and state governments in India. The third volume covers a period that saw major changes in India’s financial infrastructure. The nationalization of fourteen banks in July 1969 was the defining economic event of not just the 1960s but the next three decades. The period also saw the domination of fiscal over monetary policy, the breakdown of the Bretton Woods System and the emergence of a new international financial order characterized by floating instead of fixed exchange rates.
