ANSWER: April 1, 1935
On April 1, 1935, the Reserve Bank of India, which is the central bank of this country, was established.
It was originally started as a shareholders' bank with a share capital of Rs. 5 crore divided into shares of Rs. 100 each, fully paid-up.
But since January, 1949 the Reserve Bank has been nationalized and it is now purely a concern of the State.
The Government of India holds the entire share capital of the bank which has been acquired by payment of compensation to the shareholders.
