Book Review:A bank for the buck

This is in continuation of my book review series (see here)

A bank for the buck” by Tamal Bandyopadhyay is a book on the birth and growth of HDFC Bank

I have admired Tamal for his incisive newspaper columns and he has covered the Indian financial industry for a long time (see this).

This book contains lots of interesting anecdotes (see this) which gives one a ringside view of the making of HDFC Bank.

One thing that stuck me while reading this book is how much “an old boy’s network” the Indian banking industry is.Everybody seems to know everybody else in the Indian banking sector.

Would strongly recommend this book to readers who want to know more about HDFC Bank and the Indian banking industry.
