The present paper examines the impact of mergers and acquisitions on the financial efficiency of the selected financial institutions in India. The analysis consists of two stages. Firstly, by using the ratio analysis approach, we calculate the change in the position of the companies during the period 2000-2008. Secondly, we examine changes in the efficiency of the companies during the pre and post merger periods by using nonparametric Wilcoxon signed rank test. While we found a significant change in the earnings of the shareholders, there is no significant change in liquidity position of the firms. The result of the study indicate that M&A cases in India show a significant correlation between financial performance and the M&A deal, in the long run, and the acquiring firms were able to generate value.
