The study is a novel idea aimed at evaluation the quarterly performance of banks in India for the recent three years. Evaluating and assessing the efficiency will help banks in recognizing the areas of inefficacy and framing appropriate strategies to increase its position in the market. The study analysed the quarterly efficiencies of selected public sector and private sector banks in India for recent three-quarters of FY 2016-17 using the non-parametric performance evaluation technique of Data Envelopment Analysis. A total of 20 banks, 15 public sector, and 5 private sector banks, were selected as samples for the study. Out of sample units studied, some of the banks proved consistency in performance during the study period, and also most of the banks did not have consistency, mainly public sector banks. The contribution is a novel idea that demonstrates that an efficiently performing company may not always remain efficient and vice versa and management have to keep a check on the performance on a continuous basis. For an inefficient bank to become efficient, target input levels for underperforming banks are also suggested. The slack inputs give a direction for managers in banks in identifying the areas of optimisation viz. minimisation of inputs for the efficient performance.
