Merger with ICICI Bank

Under Section 44A of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949, the ICICI Bank-Bank of Rajasthan merger was the seventh voluntary merger in the Indian banking sector. After Sangli Bank, this was ICICI Bank's fourth acquisition. The origins of the merger can be traced back to the SEBI and RBI's regulatory action in the Bank of Rajasthan.
