To bring up a broad concept, banking law in India is based upon 2 major acts (legislation) in India. First being the banking regulations act, 1949 and secondly reserve bank of India act, 1934, these 2 acts are the building blocks of any banking law in India.
Since the legal framework of the banking business and financial services are administered primarily by the Banking Regulation Act, 1949. Then the Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934 (RBI Act) authorizes (RBI) to issue rules and regulations, along with some directions and guidelines on a wide range of issues.

If an entity wants to conduct any banking services, it is important that they obtain a license by applying to the RBI. And once the license is obtained, that banking company can conduct supplementary business such as borrowing and lending, trade finance, guarantee, and indemnity business, financial leasing and hire purchase. In case if an entity proposes to deal in foreign exchange, then it needs a separate license from the RBI issued under the Foreign Exchange Management Act.
Only authorized dealers have approved powers to facilitate foreign exchange and cross-border transactions. In order to have a bank license application is given to the RBI which is set out according to the norms of Banking Regulation (Companies) Rules, 1949.

And there are some non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) that are registered with RBI. Most probably these companies do undertake financial activities such as investment, hire-purchase, leasing, factoring and lending, subject to the RBI Act and RBI regulations but are not regulated as banks.
The organizational requirements of banks are governed under The Banking Regulation Act where such business can only be conducted by a company. Private banks are incorporated under as a company under the Companies Act and the State-owned banks are incorporated under specific statutes.
