The Presidency Banks had the sole right to print the currency notes. The Presidency Banks agglomerated in the year 1921 and reorganized as the Imperial Bank of India. The Imperial Bank still remained out of Government participation. Going by the State Bank of India Act of 1955, the Reserve Bank of India, gained a control in the bank.
In the year 1955 the Imperial Bank became the State Bank of India and RBI gained a 60% share in the SBI. In the year 2008, the Government of India got hold of the stake of RBI in the State Bank of India, to avoid any conflict of interest. The Government of India passed the Subsidiary Banks Act in the year 1959 making the banks of princely states the subsidiaries of SBI.
This combined with the First Five Year Plan which targeted at the development of rural India. The Government combined all these banks into SBI. Bank of Jaipur and Bank of Bikaner were incorporated into SBI in the year 1963.SBI acquired some of the banks to rescue their bankruptcy.
