Recently, Bank of Maharashtra has been in news for whether or not it will continue to operate as a separate entity, or will it be merged into bigger and other lenders.
After State Bank of India absorbed its various associate banks, the central government put in motion a decision to amalgamate Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank with Bank of Baroda. Now, it is scanning for more such opportunities among state-owned lenders. However, former MD and Chief Executive Officer, Ravindra Marathe has asserted that there was a strong commercial basis for BoM to stay an independent entity.
