Risk, capital and operating efficiency: Evidence from Indian public sector banks

Abhiman Das and Saibal Ghosh

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The paper examines the interaction between risk, capital and operating efficiency in a simultaneous equation setting. Using data on Indian state-owned banks for 1993-2000, the analysis finds these variables to be intertwined, with each reinforcing the other, although the results differ across bank size class.
