Public Sector Banks, Financial Performance, Efficiency, Profitability


The Reserve Bank of India and the Ministry of Finance are in charge of the country's vast array of governmental and private financial institutions. Competition, client demand, and banking reforms in India have made efficiency and profitability of the banking sector a primary concern. SBI, BOB, and BOI, three of India's biggest public sector banks, are the focus of this research. From 2016-17 through 2020-21, these banks have been analysed in terms of their financial performance. FRA (Financial Ratio Analysis) is a tool used to evaluate public sector banks' financial performance by looking at their ratios. Banks can benefit from the outcomes of this study.
