History: The earlier holders of the Bank of India name had failed and were no longer in existence by the time a diverse group of Hindus, Muslims, Parsees, and Jews helped establish the present Bank of India in 1906 in Bombay. It was the first bank in India whose promoters aimed to serve all the communities of India. At the time, banks in India were either owned by Europeans and served mainly the interests of the European merchant houses, or by different communities and served the banking needs of their own community.
The promoters incorporated the Bank of India on 7 September 1906 under Act VI of 1882, with an authorized capital of ₹10 million (US$150,000) divided into 100,000 shares each of ₹100 (US$1.50). The promoters placed 55,000 shares privately, and issued 45,000 to the public by way of IPO on 3 October 1906; the bank commenced operations on 1 November 1906.The lead promoter of the Bank of India was Sir Sassoon J. David (1849–1926). He was a member of the Sassoon family, who in turn were part of a Bombay community of Baghdadi Jews that was notable for its history of social service. Sir David was a prudent banker and remained the bank’s chief executive from its founding in 1906 until his death in 1926.
The first board of directors of the bank consisted of Sir Sassoon David, Sir Cowasjee Jehangir, J. Cowasjee Jehangir, Sir Frederick Leigh Croft, Ratanjee Dadabhoy Tata, Gordhandas Khattau, Lalubhai Samaldas, Khetsety Khiasey, Ramnarain Hurnundrai, Jenarrayen Hindoomull Dani, and Noordin Ebrahim Noordin.In 1921, BoI entered into an agreement with the Bombay Stock Exchange to manage its clearing house.
