As far as Banking law is concerned, from the Banking Regulations Act, 1949 till now many amendments took place showing its dynamic nature. 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. Predominantly, RBI is the central banking institution of India, controlling all the monetary policies of India. It makes sure that India is not out of shares even during the economic crisis.

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, 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. Therefore it is important for the Foreign banks before they carry on banking business in India, to obtain banking, notwithstanding whether they are licensed in their home state.

And there are some non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) that are registered with RBI.
