    When Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman last Friday announced the merger of 10 banks into 4, she was translating into action a tiered banking blueprint suggested in 1991 by Maidavolu Narasimham, who holds the distinction of being the only RBI cadre official to have headed the regulator. As chair of the 1991 Committee on the Financial System – he also led the 1998 Committee of Banking Sector Reforms – Narasimham had argued in favour of three-four mega banks at the top of the pyramid, supported by a wider base of last-mile financiers. Tune in as ET's Saloni Shukla brings you a lowdown of the key takeaways of Modi government's PSB merger drive and shares insight on what does the move mean for the banking industry and the economy going forward.
