put banks through for 2010-11, are strength and soundness, growth, efficiency, profitability and credit quality. While Yes bank has won the award for growth, Standard Chartered Bank had been judged the most profitable bank. Deutsche Bank has been judged the winner for both efficiency and credit quality while the award for strength and soundness has gone to HDFC Bank. The FE Best Banks awards have always lauded banks that excel in attributes otherwise difficult to maintain. The tradition continues.
