Books and MonographsChakrabarti, Rajesh. Financial Development in India – Status and Challenges"in "Financial Development and Regulation: Perspectives from Asian Emerging Markets, Brookings Institution Press, 2011Read Description >Close >Financial markets in India have come a long way in the past decade and half in terms of
economic reforms. India has emerged as a leader in Asia in terms of financial
deepening. Development has been uneven in different parts of the financial sector,
ranging from a virtual reinvention of equity trading to hardly noticeable in corporate debt
markets. International portfolio flows have affected the financial sector in general with
the effective level of capital account convertibility well above that reflected in the de jure restrictions, and changes here have been cautious. The regulatory structure is
fragmented though with ongoing efforts at greater coordination and unification.
Regulatory capacity, too, has fallen behind industry growth. The recent global crisis has
underlined the importance of systemic risks, the interconnectedness of markets, the
risks with large financial conglomerates and the need of macro-prudential monitoring. At
the same time, the developments in UK have strengthened criticism of a unified
regulatory structure and a shift to greater principle-based regulation. Some of India’s key
developmental challenges lie in the areas of institutional and business environment,
elements outside the direct control of financial policy makers.

Books and MonographsChakrabarti, Rajesh. "Grit, Guts and Gumption: Driving Change in a State-owned Giant", Penguin Books, 2010Read Description >Close >This is the story of the carefully planned resurgence of the State Bank of India (SBI) from a laid-back incumbent under threat from private players to a customer-oriented competitive organization that has outperformed rivals despite several constraints. The leadership at SBI succeeded in reshaping perspectives and profitability at the bank, which employs a staggering 200,000 people, notwithstanding salary restrictions and regulatory bottlenecks. While the primary thrust was on changing employee attitude towards their own organization and, of course, its customers, the transformation exercise was broadbased, encompassing fundamental changes in technology, processes and business-mix alike.
In about three years beginning 2006, SBI not only defended its own lair against the siege of younger, leaner, meaner rivals, but actually took the battle to the attackers’ domains. SBI’s size and setting make the story an inspiring example to other organizations, particularly in the public sector. Written in a fluid and engaging style, and backed by facts, figures, analysis and anecdotes, the book challenges several stereotypes and dogmas common in today’s management circles.
