Saurashtra is a major region in the state of Gujarat. Today’s cities and towns like Porbandar, Rajkot, and Bhavnagar fall under the administrative zone of this region. In the pre-independence era, every place had its own Darbar bank. When the entire region was congregated as one under the name Saurashtra, all the banks under that region made their operations parallel to each other. Post-independence, the states were reorganized leading to the culmination of banks under that district as one. By the year 1960, the State Bank of India took over the operations of the State Bank of Saurashtra and made it one of its 7 associate banks. In the year 2008, the bank was merged with the State Bank of India.
