The rich heritage of State Bank of Patiala dates back to the year 1917, when it was founded by
Late His Highness Bhupinder Singh, Maharaja of erstwhile Patiala state, with one branch by the
name of ’Chowk Fort, Patiala’ to begin with. The Bank, then known as the ‘Patiala State bank’
was state owned and setup for the explicit purpose of fostering growth of agriculture, trade and
industry. The constitution, scope and operations of the Bank underwent a sea change with the
formation of the Patiala and East Punjab States Union (PEPSU) in 1948. The Bank was then
reorganized and brought under the control of Reserve Bank of India. It was christened as the
Bank of Patiala.
Another milestone in the history of the Bank was its becoming a subsidiary of the State Bank of
India on 1st April, 1960 when it was named as the State Bank of Patiala and since then it has
grown significantly both in size and volume of business.
In line with its vision of “Blending Modernity with Tradition”, the Bank took great strides in the
field of technology and became the first public sector bank in the country to fully network all its
branches. The Bank continues to live up to its avowed mission of customer focused approach by
appropriate blend of traditional values with technology platform- the best in the industry, as a
prominent constituent of the prestigious State Bank Group.
