Pandemonium: The Great Indian Banking Tragedy is a critical study of the ailing Indian banking system. Especially, the book dives deep into the troubles facing the public sector banks, and the resultant opportunities for the cronies. Tamal also captures the post-demonetization era, when the reluctance of banks propelled the lending by the NBFCs.
In short, the book analyses the Indian banking system that has been in tatters for the past few years. It covers the irregular loans to crony capitalists and the exposé of powerful bankers like Chanda Kochhar and Rana Kapoor. Pandemonium is a must-read for those looking for an in-depth insight into the banking sector and the Indian economy. The book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
