Afaqs news bureau reported this news saying that the category is led by websites of various banks. The website of ICICI Bank, icicibank.com, was the most visited finance/bank website with 4.7 million unique users in June 2010.

He adds, “With half of India’s online population visiting a business or finance related site during the month, there is an opportunity to reach and engage financial consumers in a way that was not possible before. Now, financial companies must focus on devising effective digital strategies to help attract and retain these important customers or risk losing them to their competitors.”
