Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Banking and Finance (JNIBF), situated on a sprawling 50 acre campus at Gachibowli, Hyderabad was set up in the year 1991 as Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Development Banking (JNIDB). The Institute was meant to cater to the training and development needs of human resources of IDBI – primarily in the area of development banking, project finance and term lending. The Institute also offered its expertise to various financial institutions and commercial banks in India and other developing countries.

Over the years, more than 50,000 banking professionals, both from within and outside India have benefited from a wide range of training programs offered by the Institute, inter-alia, in the areas of project appraisal, credit management, executive development and also in other related spheres of banking. The Institute has earned the reputation in training for banking and financial sector. It has organized, in the past, various training programs under the aegis of South Asian Development Fund (for SAARC), Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and Pacific (ADFIAP), Euro Money, etc. besides training related to research and consultancy assignments. With the transformation of Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI) into a Universal Bank i.e. IDBI Bank Ltd., there have been significant changes in the profile of the training programs carried out by the Institute. JNIBF is now fully equipped to meet the training requirements of its employees at various levels, as well as of other banks and financial institutions in India and other developing countries. The programs of the Institute are offered as on-campus and off-site basis with resource faculty drawn from IDBI Bank Ltd. senior officers from other banks and experts from reputed institutions from India and abroad, apart from the experienced core faculty attached to the Institute.

With the changing trends and needs in corporate and retail banking as well as in financial sector, the Institute proposes to re-position itself as a multi-faceted International Centre for Excellence, and, has aptly changed its name to Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Banking and Finance (JNIBF). The Institute would continue to invest heavily in training as a proactive, planned and ongoing process for organization development besides furthering the advancement of knowledge for the banking domain by understanding the broader inter-relations with global developments through focused attention and sharing of global best practices and philosophies.

‘True knowledge gives discipline, from discipline comes worthiness, from worthiness one gets wealth, from wealth one does good deeds, And from that comes joy’
( Translated from a Sanskrit Shloka)


Architecture of JNIBF: Charles Correa designed JNIBF keeping in view the training requirements of senior managers from banks in India and abroad. The pattern and layout of the building has been designed to encourage informal interaction and discussion among the participants and faculty members. The architecture is evidence to the complex system of interdependent spaces, organized around a series of landscaped courtyards, so as to provide the humidified micro-climate necessary in the hot-dry climate of Hyderabad. The outside walls of the complex are white, with the warm earth colours and the landscaped courtyards glowing from within.

The sequence of courtyards connects the Auditorium to the Academicia and the Faculty Square that form the public zone. Along a cross axis, another sequence leads one up through the gently ascending levels of the sloping site, past the lounges, the Reception and the computer lab to the residential rooms, which are laid out around smaller courtyards that form the private zone. From the residential rooms out towards the external landscape, there is an analogous pattern of layering: each room has a small sit-out porch, which in turn relates to the cluster of other such porches, all located on terrace gardens, from where one can go out into the surrounding landscape.
In the centre of the entire complex is the kund (named as Narmada square), whose stone steps echo the boulder-strewn landscape of Hyderabad, creating a focus in the centre of the complex – an ideal place for casual conversations, as also for concerts and more formal occasions.

Charles Correa (1930 – 2015) Charles Correa, an Indian Architect of international repute, Urban planner and academician, and also known as India’s world architect has designed JNIBF in the year 1986 and the project was completed in 1991. His principle concept in the design of this institute was to stimulate informal interaction between the students and faculty by the architecture itself. An influential and inspiring architect, he is credited for his unique style of interpreting traditional Indian architectural elements in the creation of modern architecture in post independence India. His architecture was sensitive towards use of traditional method and materials, the needs of the urban poor and transformation of Indian cities. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 1972, and the second highest civilian honour, the Padma Vibhushan in 2006. He received Royal Gold Medal for architecture, by the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1984 and the Aga Khan Award in 1998.
