Abstract: The worldwide financial crisis of 2008-2009 had unfavourably affected the banking sector and impelled the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) on amending its existing capital adequacy guidelines in December 2010, termed as Basel-III guidelines, to reduce the chances of happening of any such crisis in the future. In this paper, we empirically analyse whether after complying capital adequacy ratio as per RBI Basel-III norms, the banks are able to take gain investors' confidence into them. This paper analyses whether risk perception of CAR compliant banks has increased or decreased or stagnant in terms of change in advances and profitability for the fiscal years 2015 and 2016. The data being used for the analysis are financial reports (balance sheets and income statement) of the banks and their capital adequacy ratios for the fiscal year 2014-2015 and 2015-2016.
