    Late B Ratnakar was the youngest ever CMD of any nationalised bank in India. When he became CMD of Canara Bank in 1982, he was only 45 years old. Undoubltedly the shrewdest brain ever in Indian banking, he pioneered credit card 7 mutual fund business in indian banking. May his soul rest in peace!!
