What is a Bank?

A bank is an institution that accepts deposits of money from the public, which are repayable on demand and withdrawable by cheque. Such deposits are used for lending to others and not for financing its own business of any kind. The term lending includes both direct lending to borrowers and indirect lending through investment in open market securities. A sound banking system plays a pivotal role in the growth of a nation's economy. In India, the beginning of banking system dates back to 1881, when the first bank called as 'the Oudh Commercial Bank' was established. It was followed by the setting up of the 'Punjab National Bank' in 1894. Subsequently, a number of commercial banks came up in the country. The number of bank offices multiplied from 8,300 in July 1969 to more than 47,000 in June 1995. It substantially improved the overall availability of banking facilities in the country. →

Genetically Modified Food or Crops

Genetic Modification Genetic modification refers to techniques used to manipulate the genetic composition of an organism by adding specific useful genes. A gene is a sequence of DNA that contains information that determines a particular characteristic/trait. All organisms have DNA (genes). Genes are located in chromosomes. Genes are units of inheritance that are passed from one generation to the next and provide instructions for development and function of the organism. Crops that are developed through genetic modification are referred to as genetically modified (GM) crops, transgenic crops or genetically engineered (GE) crops. Over the last 30 years, the field of genetic engineering has developed rapidly due to the greater understanding of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) as the chemical double helix code from which genes are made. The term genetic engineering is used to describe the process by which the genetic makeup of an organism can be altered using “recombinant DNA technology.” This →
