The Directory contains detailed information on all administratively independent
branches and offices (68,723 as on 30th September 2003) of commercial banks functioning
in India. A branch or an office of a bank is treated as administratively independent
provided it maintains the separate books of accounts for its day-to-day transactions.
The information contained in the Directory are mainly based on the basic details
of branches/offices received from respective banks in the prescribed proformae viz.,
Proforma-I (for newly opened branches/ offices) and Proforma-II (for changes in
address, status, merger/closure, etc. of existing branches/offices). Branch details
furnished by banks along with Uniform Code Number allotted to each and every branch/office
of commercial and co-operative banks are maintained in the computer system of the
Department of Statistical Analysis and Computer Services in the form of Master Office
File (MOF). MOFs are maintained separately for commercial and co-operative banks.
