State Bank of India Prayagraj has been involved in non-profit sector, called Community Services Banking, since 1973. All of our branches and administrative offices sponsor and participate in a large number of welfare activities and social causes across the country. Our business is more than just banking, because in many ways we touch people's lives anywhere. We are fully and comprehensively committed to nation building.The roots of India's State Bank dates back to the first decade of the nineteenth century, when Bank of Calcutta was founded in Calcutta on 2 June 1806. The bank received its charter three years later, and was re-designed as the Bank of Bengal (2 January 1809). A special entity, this was British India's first joint-stock bank funded by the Bengali government. Bank of Bombay (15 April 1840) succeeded Bank of Bengal with Bank of Madras (1 July 1843). Such three banks stood on India's pinnacle of modern banking until their amalgamation as India's Imperial Bank on January 27, 1921.
