In the recent time world economy has developed certain serious economic difficulties, in the first instance failing of banking & financial institutions and secondly the global economy has been badly affected by falling demand in major economies. Since the prospects have become very uncertain and rather dim, there has been a slack in the levels of economic activities causing recession in major economies. The chief characteristic of the recession is that, while on the one hand there are large unutilised industrial capacities in the economic system on the other hand infrastructure and other developments becoming deficient leading to future contraction in demand.

India has not been kept untouched by these conditions though our sound banking policies and other regulatory measure have protected us from the downturn and is evident from the fact that we still can grow our GDP by 7% and above but, there is a situation of imbalances and distrust been developed among the corporates & financial institutions in the economic system. The most curious aspect of the present situation is that the price level of industrial and agricultural goods continues to be very high despite the slack in demand.

In this context, it has become necessary to examine the role that the Banking & Financial system of the country which has played substantial role in promoting the long term growth of the economy as well as in creating conditions in which further growth of industry and infrastructure has been witnessed in recent years. In respect to the present scenario, the role of bank credit is an important factor to be examined in, so as it helps to create the favourable situation as well as maintain it for a long period to boost economy. In addition, both political and regulatory commitment to long term programme of planed development requires a greater attention & measures which seek to attain economic stability and growth. The need for today is to build trust among the Financial Institutions and Industry supported by effective policy measure taken by the regulatory authority in order unleash a process of development which will raise standards of living, help to create new economic opportunities for the vast masses of the country, and lead towards the establishment of economic stability as a whole.
