Having started its operations as Industrial Credit and Investment Corporation of India Bank, the institution then took as a name the abbreviation ICICI Bank; afterwise, its founder, ICICI Limited, merget with the Bank and the corporation become aknowledged as ICICI Group. In the beginning, the Bank was a wholly-owned subsidiary; then in the fiscal 1998, by public offering of shares, ICICI's shareholding was diminished to 46 per cent.
The founder of ICICI Bank, ICICI Limited, was incorporated in 1955, on a shared initiative of the World Bank, Indian Government and with the participation of Indian industry representatives. The idea was to create a stable institution purposed at providing financing support for medium-term and long-term business projects in India. However, the last decade of 20. century was a business-transforming period for ICICI. Instead of only project finance, it started offering - both directly or by subsidiaries and affiliates (one of them ICICI Bank) - a variety of financial services and opportunities. As a result, in 1999 ICICI got listed by New York Stock Exchange - and become the first bank and financial service provider of India and as well of the non-Japan Asia included there.
