The present study provides a comparative analysis of the efficiency measures of Indian banks during 2009 -2013 financial period. The global financial crisis has caused credit crunch in the financial markets due to outflow of capital and consequently has its impact on Indian banking sector too. Financial institutions influence the growth of the economy by providing funds to business that have limited access to other sources of finances. Due to the intense competition and volatile environment, it is crucial for banks to be efficient and stay competitive. This study uses Data Envelopment analysis (DEA), a nonparametric linear programming based technique, to evaluate the efficiency of SBI (State Bank of India) and its associates, nationalized banks, old private sector banks, new private sector banks, and foreign banks. This study recommends that Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) could be an appropriate alternative tool for bank management for measuring efficiency and benchmarking against other banks using publically available information.
