Allahabad Bank was founded in 1865, and the bank had its headquarters in Kolkata. The bank had a fair share of popularity and a customer base. In 2020, the government of India decided to restructure the private sector bank. As a part of this effort, Allahabad Bank was merged with Indian Bank and the new entity was known as Indian Bank.
