State-owned banking giant State Bank of India is the most profitable bank followed by ICICI Bank (IBN). State Bank of India generates more than three times the profits of ICICI.

It is interesting to see Citibank(C) in this list. While the Citibank in the U.S. has to be bailed out by US taxpayers from collapse, Citibank subsidiaries in other countries have been performing well such as the Citibank division in India. The other foreign bank in the list is the British-based Standard Chartered Bank. The presence of these two foreign banks in the ranking shows the success of their Indian operations in the difficult environment last year.
