With the amalgamation coming to effect from the beginning of the current fiscal on 1 April, 2020, PNB has now become the second-largest bank in India.

The scheme of merger has reduced the number of public-owned banks in India and with the latest round a total of 10 PSBs have been consolidated into four bigger entities.

The number of PSBs in India now stands at 12.
