Kotak Mahindra Group was incorporated in 1985 as Kotak Capital Management Finance Limited which is promoted by Uday Kotak, Sidney A. A. Pinto and Kotak & Company. In 1986, Industrialists Anand Mahindra and Harish Mahindra held stakes in Kotak Group and that is when the name was changed to Kotak Mahindra Finance Limited. 

In 2003, the Kotak Mahindra Finance Limited was converted to Kotak Mahindra Bank transforming into a fully commercial bank. In 2015, ING Vysya Bank was taken over by Kotak Mahindra Bank to hold a national footprint with over 1,350 branches.

Just a week ago, Billionaire Kotak Bank's market capitalization rose to Rs 1,60,152 crore based on March 21st closing stock price on the Bombay Stock Exchange, compared with Rs 1,55,507 crore for ICICI Bank according to the data compiled by ETIG Database.
