Research Initiatives

Research is an important aspect of education. Research studies help the institutions to understand the lay of the road and shape of things to come such that the educational programmes can be appropriately modified and sharpened. Further help the organizations to understand the problems to explore the appropriate steps to be initiated. With this in view, in 2003 the Institute had started an initiative to fund research studies on selected areas in banking and finance. The initiative has been known as the `Macro Research', the term macro suggesting the scope of the research and to distinguish it from the other research initiative of the Institute namely the 'Micro Research' which is a sort of an essay competition for members of the Institute (bankers) on areas of their interest.

Under the Macro Research initiative, the Institute invites proposals from research scholars from universities, colleges and banks to take up research in identified areas. The proposals are approved by the Research Advisory Committee (RAC) of the Institute comprising eminent bankers and economists. The present Research Advisory Committee comprises of

  • Dr. Ajit Ranade, Chairman
  • Dr. Brinda Jagirdar, Member
  • Mr. Madan Sabnavis, Member
  • Dr. Mridul Saggar, Member
  • Dr. S.Sarkar, Member
Once selected, the researchers carry out full fledged research for a period of 4-6 months. The Institute awards grant support of Rupees two lakh and fifty thousand for undertaking the project. The research studies undertaken so far under the Macro Research initiatives are
